Skin care isn’t always on the top of our list of things to do, so here is one quick tip for having healthier, better looking skin:
Cleansing is synonymous with washing. It removes the top layer of dirt and excess oil that accumulates on a daily basis. You should only be cleansing your face for about 30 to 60 seconds. Over-cleansing can create a negative environment in the skin, making it more susceptible to dirt and bacteria.
While washing your face is important, you have to remember that not all cleansers are the same. Bar soap is not a one-size-fits-all kind of product. It actually does more harm than good by stripping the skin of the natural protective barrier of healthy oils. Throw out that bar soap and start giving your skin the attention it deserves. So, if bar soap is out, what should you use? A good place to start is with your skin type.
If you have oily skin, the objective is to absorb and control the excess oils. Try products like Dermalogica’s Dermal Clay Cleanser and you will feel a cool refreshing sensation.
Normal to Combination Skin:
If you have Normal to combination skin, you probably experience the occasional dry or oily spots. We recommend cleansing with a foaming cleanser to thoroughly clean the skin. This cleanser by Baxter will keep you feeling balanced and smooth: Daily Face Wash.
Dry skin lacks oil so your cleanser should be nourishing and moisturizing. Dermalogica’s Essential cleansing solution will have your skin feeling rich and conditioned: Essential Cleansing Solution.
If you want to keep it simple, we recommend the Jack Black All Over Wash.
Remember, cleansing your skin is the fist step to looking and feeling great. For more tips, call or book an appointment online at theqg.com
