Facial Cleansing

Did you know that cleansing your facial skin is the first and most important step in your daily skincare routine? The skincare products you apply afterwards will then work optimally. Your skin will be grateful for it!

Cleansing with water alone?

Your skin encounters dirt from outside, such as exhaust fumes and dust, on a daily basis. In addition, the skin itself also produces waste products and skin oils, which can cause blockages and impurities. Unfortunately, water alone cannot completely remove these substances.


What is the best way to cleanse your skin?

Before cleaning your face, wash your hands first. If you don't do this, bacteria will be transferred from your hands to your face. Therefore, always use a clean towel to dry your skin.

A careful cleansing consists of two steps:

1. Washing your face with a milk or wash gel. This is the actual cleansing.

2. After washing, finish with a toner or tonic. This causes pores to constrict after cleansing and removes excess dirt left behind after using the milk or gel.


Peeling and facial mask

In addition to daily cleansing, you can use a facial peeling once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells. This will give you a more even skin complexion and offers the skin a deeper cleanse. As the skin recovers at night, it is best to use the peeling before bedtime. If you have oily and firm skin, then using a peeling twice a week is recommended, otherwise once a week is sufficient.

After exfoliation, you can apply a face mask as extra care. A mask works more effectively after using a peeling, as the pores can then absorb the active ingredients better.


Always cleanse your skin before going to bed

Especially if you use make-up, it is important to cleanse your skin every night. If you don't, you risk clogged pores and your skin cannot perform its repairing work optimally.

To completely remove your eye make-up (especially mascara), it is better not to rub extra hard as you will damage the delicate skin around the eyes and your lashes. Instead, take a cotton ball, soak it with the make-up remover and place it on your eyes for a few seconds. Then move the cotton ball back and forth to remove the last remnants.

Next, use a wash gel or milk to cleanse your whole face and finish with a toner/tonic.


Cleansing wipes

Face wipes are like ready-made meals for the face: convenient and quick, but not for every day. Use them when travelling or when you have little time, but make it a standard ritual to carefully cleanse your face in the morning and evening and care for it with a cream.


Hot or cold?

The skin on your face is much more sensitive than the skin on the rest of your body. Washing with hot water can cause irritation and redness and damage the skin's natural protective layer. Therefore, prefer to use lukewarm or cold water when washing your face.
