If you wash your face with soap and water in the shower, you probably think that’s enough to ensure your skin is in decent shape. If you scoff at the idea of spending 3 minutes giving your skin a good clean, you might want to rethink your tactics. There is more you need to think about when it comes to cleansing your face, and here are our top reasons why you should put the soap down and pick up a natural cleanser as part of your skincare regime.
Water alone doesn’t clean your skin
No matter what you do in a day, your skin is subjected to all sorts of elements – wind, dirt, oil, and bacteria to name a few. While water is important for your skin’s hydration, when it comes to cleaning your skin, water on its own will only get rid of about 65% of the daily debris your face is subjected to. When you continue to wash it with water, it only builds up as your pores become clogged. Even if you use a soap, most of these are traditionally made from vegetable oils, animal fats or synthetic detergents, and may leave your skin feeling dry and irritated. Scrubbing also won’t clear away all the oils and impurities that don’t break down in water. A natural product such as Sukin Foaming Facial Cleanser, is gentle and non-drying on the skin. It also breaks down and removes skin impurities, so your face is clear and feels soft and clean.
The right cleanser can help your skin problems
In a similar fashion to majority of other skin products, it is also important that you choose a cleanser based on your skin type. If you have oily skin, a Foaming Facial Cleanser with evening primrose oils, will help to purify and balance your skin. A more targeted product for oily skin such as Sukin’s Oil Balancing Purifying Gel Cleanser with antioxidants and vitamins, will also help to combat this problem while ensuring your skin feels exceptionally clean. People with sensitive skin can also choose the sensitive cleansing options, and you can rest assured that all Sukin products are sulphate and paraben free.
Believe it or not, a cleanser can help you to look younger
Many of us are desperately in search of the fountain of youth, that magical elixir which will fight wrinkles and slow down the other signs of aging skin. There are a few ways in which cleansing helps your skin to look younger. When we go to bed with makeup and the day’s grime on our faces, it blocks the natural exfoliating process our skin goes through. When this happens, our pores become blocked andour skin looks dull and unhealthy. Cleansing your skin especially before bed, will free your skin so it gets the oxygen required to naturally repair itself while you sleep. In doing so, it will also stimulate your skin’s blood flow and general processes, that also help inthe penetration and absorption of key ingredients to help fight aging.
While cleansing at night as we just mentioned above, is important for removing the makeup, sunscreen and grime that you accumulate on your face throughout the day, a cleanse first thing in the morning will also remove the bacteria and dirt that collects on your face while you are asleep. Cleansing your face in the morning, will definitely give your skin the best start to the day, and Sukin natural face cleansers really do suit all skin types. Sukin believes that skincare shouldn’t cost the earth, so you are sure to find the right cleanser for your skin, that won’t break your budget. With that thought in mind, you have no excuse not to add a cleanser to your daily skin routine.
