Cleansing is an important – if not the most important aspect of a good skin care regimen. If you do nothing else, make sure your skin is kept clean using a good quality cleanser.
Cleansing helps to prevent the visible signs of ageing and to stimulate the internal processes that fight ageing. Overnight, the skin needs oxygen to repair itself. Dirt and make-up blocks pores and deprives cells of oxygen, affecting this natural process of rejuvenation.
Cleansing also prepares the skin to absorb actives and ingredients from other skin care products.
It has also been shown that when makeup is left on it can seep deep down into the skin, clogging pores causing them to become enlarged. As one gets older, the pores do not snap back as easily leaving the skin even more prone to inflammation and free radical damage.
But it is not just about taking make up off at night. Cleansing should also be the first thing you do in the morning because as mentioned earlier your skin rejuvenates and recovers at night so that in the morning you have more dead skin cells and excess sebum that needs to be removed.
Celltone has a selection of cleansers including its Moisturising Facial Wash – a gentle, foaming, water soluble cleanser which removes dirt, oil and make-up.
The Soothing Cleansing Lotion is a non-foaming cleanser that is mild and moisturising.
For problem skin, Celltone’s Spot Control is a gentle and refreshing face wash formulated to cleanse the skin of excess oil and grime without excessive drying.
