Why Does Healthy Skin Care Start With Cleansing?

Remember complaining to your mom when she made you wash your face every day? Doesn’t it seem like mom was right? Undoubtedly, regular skin cleansing is critical to maintaining healthy looking and feeling skin.

While you must be increasingly using skin care products on your skin, you seem to be leaving out or doing a rush job of the most basic and essential step of your beauty routine – Cleansing.

Remember: a quick swipe of a face wipe or splashing your face with water in the shower would not cut it.

Taking the time to remove your makeup and thoroughly wash your face with a good cleanser will ensure that you see visible improvements day after day, cleanse after cleanse. Your skin will talk wonders.

Let us have a look at why facial cleansers are so important:

Facial cleansers play a vital role in your skin care routine. Face washes are specifically designed to remove impurities, germs, dirt, and makeup that can irritate the skin.

Removes Build-Up:

A common benefit of facial cleansing is the removal of dirt, oil, and other unwanted debris. The skin on your face is continually exposed to bacteria, pollutants, viruses, dirt, and old (dead) skin cells throughout the day. Daily facial washing removes these impurities to give the skin a fresh and replenished look. Without washing, your skin would be covered with a thick layer of dirt and grime, making it difficult for other products to penetrate the skin properly and also giving a base for the growth of skin infections.

To maintain clear & glowing skin, try Oriental Botanics Rivayat Ubtan Foaming Face Wash (with Built-in Brush). It is a unique formulation rich in bioactive ingredients and herbal extracts, specially infused to provide your skin with a deep cleansing & nourishing experience. It helps brighten the dull skin while reviving the natural glow. The Foaming Face wash produces and pumps out a thick foam that feels soft on the skin and spreads easily to cleanse your face of dirt & grime efficiently. It helps get rid of tanned skin & dead skin cells to reveal a radiant, glowing complexion. Infused with skin benefitting ingredients like Turmeric, Rose, Tulsi, Multani Mitti, Amla, and other natural extracts that provide the skin with intense nourishment, this Foaming Face Wash is a must add-on to your facial skin care ritual.

Maintains A Clear Skin:

Skin produces sebum naturally to help protect itself from environmental damage. While sebum is beneficial to your skin, if it stays on the skin too long without being cleansed off or if there is excessive oil on the surface, it can merge with any residing build-up leftover on your skin. This may cause enlarged pores and create a blockage of skin follicles, trapping sebum, and allowing bacteria to penetrate the skin, which leads to inflammation, acne, giving a blotchy and lackluster complexion.

To maintain healthy and clean skin, we recommend you to try Oriental Botanics Australian Tea Tree Anti Acne Foaming Face Wash (with Built-In-Brush). It helps eliminate the dirt & grime and control excess oil secretion on the skin. Enriched with the rich properties and benefits of pure Australian Tea Tree Oil, the Foaming Face Wash deeply cleanses the skin while nourishing it. The presence of AcneBusters helps fight acne and make skin clear. The mild exfoliating agent in the Face Wash helps slough off the dead skin and bring out a natural glow. The skin benefitting ingredients like Cucumber, Aloe Vera, Green Tea, & Neem helps soothe and calm the skin, making it healthy. This face wash eliminates all traces of grime and grease and refreshes the skin.

Boosts Hydration:

Cleansing your face regularly (along with the use of a good moisturizer) is also an essential factor in helping the skin maintain a proper level of hydration. Dehydrated skin looks and feels rough, wrinkled, and aged. Cleansing helps manage the natural pH levels of the skin, enabling sufficient water and product retention. Thus, giving a plumped-up and glowing skin.

For super hydrated & nourished skin, try Oriental Botanics Aloe Vera, Green Tea & Cucumber Hydrating Face Wash. This is a multipurpose face wash that combines cleansing with skincare to restore your skin to its purified state. Despite its powerful cleansing action, it is gentle on the skin.

This hydrating face wash replenishes the skin’s hydration so that your skin does not feel dry, stretched, or scratchy and remains supple after cleaning. The moisture mantle also helps to minimize everyday skin damages due to exposure to environmental pollutants.

Gives Youthful Complexion:

Every day, your skin is aging. Pollution and environmental toxins can accelerate the aging process. The very basic process of cleansing your skin is an excellent way to eliminate all unwanted particles and stimulate the internal processes, which fight aging, including wrinkles, lack of tone, pigmentation, and dullness.

The Activated Charcoal Bright Glow Face Wash from Oriental Botanics is your perfect solution for deeply cleansed and nourished skin. This face wash provides the triple benefits of deep cleansing, brightening and refreshing the skin. Though gentle on the skin, it effectively helps draw out the impurities from the skin pores and clear the enlarged pores. Its detoxification effect helps in improving the complexion and assists in evening out the skin tone. It contains plant-based skin-lightening ingredients that help to increase the skin radiance and rejuvenate the dull skin. It helps to calm down the irritated and inflamed skin. The moisture-balancing effect of the face wash keeps the skin supple and restores the skin to its healthy state.

Increases Product’s Effectiveness:

Without cleansing, your skin would be covered with a thick layer of dirt and grime, which can render it difficult for the active ingredients applied over to penetrate the skin properly and thus function. Clearing out your pores will prepare your skin for the absorption of other skin care products. Therefore, it will make it more receptive to follow-up treatments, such as exfoliators, masks, serums, and moisturizers, for maximum effectiveness.

Choosing The Right Facial Cleanser:

With literally hundreds of over-the-counter cleansing products to choose from, here are some simple tips for selecting an excellent skin cleanser:

  • Know your skin type and choose a cleanser that is a good match. If you have dry skin, you will want to avoid cleansers with high alcohol content. People with oily skin need a cleanser with a lower pH level. For sensitive skin, you’ll want a basic cleanser free from harmful chemicals.
  • The texture of the cleanser matters. Cream-based cleansers are great for dry skin, while gel or foamy cleansers are better for oily skin types.
  • If you wear a lot of makeup, you will want a cleanser targeted toward removal.
  • If you tend to sweat a lot from working out, look for a product targeting clogged pores.
  • If you have any kind of skin irritation, look for “natural” cleansers free of synthetic ingredients.
  • Most cleansers marketed as “gentle” are great at removing dirt without over-drying and irritating the skin.
  • Selecting a cleanser with a balanced pH will help maintain your skin’s natural balance.
  • Make sure to take your time comparing products and looking at reviews.
When To Cleanse Your Face:

In The Evening

Washing your skin every evening is so much more than just a way to remove post-work makeup. Even if you don’t wear makeup, it is essential to wash your face with a cleanser. An evening cleanse is incredibly important to allow for the skin to repair itself from the damages of the day and improve your overall skin health.

Certain physiological changes in the skin occur overnight, and surface impurities would prevent the skin from regenerating since the skin requires the oxygen found in a clean face to do so correctly. Going to sleep without cleansing would deprive the skin of this vital nutrient and generate free radicals.

In The Morning

Cleansing your face of all the impurities in the morning is also beneficial due to the natural recovery and exfoliating process during your sleep. Indeed, washing your face when you wake helps remove toxins, dead skin cells, and excess oils the skin may secrete overnight. Balancing the skin and providing a fresh surface for the start of the day allows for better penetration of skincare products and nourishes the skin with the full benefits.

Cleansing your face also allows you to achieve smoother skin that is essential for makeup application.

While skipping the cleansing step and heading straight to bed may be appealing, cleansing your face twice daily will benefit the health, youth, and radiance of your skin.

Indeed, regular cleansing should not be neglected since it is one of the most effective ways to achieve a clearer and brighter complexion, leaving your skin feeling softer and smoother.
