Facial Care: How To Clean Your Skin Properly?

Dermatologists are unanimous on one point: it is essential to remove makeup and rid your skin of all impurities every night before going to bed. This facial care ritual is even the best anti-wrinkle treatment! But then, how to properly cleanse your skin?

Why is it important to clean your skin?

If you are one of those women who never go to bed without carefully removing your makeup, congratulations: you are doing exactly what you need to do to preserve the youth and beauty of your skin!

On the other hand, if you are sometimes (or often) lazy about removing your makeup properly, the following article will undoubtedly change your mind on the matter.

Even if your skin doesn't look dirty, dermatologists agree that it's essential to cleanse your skin properly every night.

The purpose of this daily routine is to cleanse the epidermis of impurities accumulated during the day, regardless of your lifestyle.

Whether you live in the city or not, whether you are a smoker or not, you should not skip this cleansing step in the evening, if you want to keep your skin healthy and luminous that does not age too quickly.

How to clean your skin properly?

To cleanse your skin properly, it is in the evening that you should devote a few minutes to a beauty ritual that is not as complicated as all that!

It is recommended to start by gently massaging your face with a makeup remover oil based on vegetable oils. The makeup remover oil is very effective in removing makeup, including long-lasting shadows and waterproof products.

To note: if you have oily skin, prefer a non-comedogenic oil such as jojoba oil and make sure to rinse it off well to avoid leaving an oily film on your skin.

This first step allows you to capture the pollution particles and grease contained in foundations and sun creams. Then rinse with water or thermal spring water if you have dry and/or sensitive skin.

How to clean your skin thoroughly?

To deep clean her skin, beauticians even recommend a double cleanse.

After using a makeup remover oil following the method described above, the second step is to remove facial makeup with a cleansing milk or micellar water, depending on personal preference and the season.

When it's hot, it's actually more pleasant to use a micellar water that can even be placed in the refrigerator for a fresh effect.

How to clean your skin in the morning?

If you follow the facial cleansing tips diligently every night, you can get by with a much quicker cleanse in the morning.

To cleanse your skin in the morning, simply use a thermal water or floral water: both of these products gently remove the impurities released by the skin overnight, without stripping it.

Spray the water directly onto your face and then gently dab with a cotton pad or washable makeup remover square. In any case, you should not rub to limit redness and imitation.

Using thermal water has several advantages:
- it is pleasant to spray on your face to rinse off other products without drying out the epidermis. Unlike tap water, it does not tighten the skin.

- It is also beneficial because it contains minerals and trace elements that contribute to the good health of the skin.

Simply dry your face gently afterwards, unless you are using isotonic water such as Jonzac or Uriage water, which do not need to be wiped off.

If you prefer to use a lotion, choose a very gentle formula that preserves the balance of the skin flora.

To conclude, remember that skin cleansing should always be gentle and should not remove the hydrolipidic film of your epidermis, at the risk of assaulting your skin and causing pimples to appear!

What cleansing care can be done on the weekend?

To properly cleanse your skin, you can also complement your daily beauty routine with an exfoliating treatment and a weekly purifying mask.

Take advantage of the weekend to use an exfoliating product. Then apply a white clay-based mask, which helps to purify pores and make the complexion clearer.

If your skin is dehydrated, replace this purifying mask with a moisturizing mask to restore your skin's radiance.
