Did you know that cleansing and toning are the most important steps of your skincare regimen? Read on to learn more about the benefits of cleansing and toning and the products that we recommend.
Facial cleansing gets rid of old surface skin cells, dirt, dust, make-up, and bacteria, and allows your pores to breathe freely. It also helps your circulation and prepares your skin to properly receive any topical products you are going to apply. By removing dirt, grime and grease from the upper layer of the skin, one can reduce and rid of the layer of dead skin that accumulates over the skin’s surface as a result of natural skin rejuvenation. A lack of skin cleansing results in clogged pores which ultimately leads to acne, premature aging and dull skin complexion. Regardless of skin type, proper deep cleansing allows for dry skin to become hydrated and allows for oily skin to remove the excess of oil. All of this makes cleansing arguably the most important part of your skincare regimen.
Toning is an essential step that ensures skin is properly prepared for the remainder of your skincare regimen. Designed for specific skin types and conditions, toners eliminate stubborn dirt, oil and dead skin cells left behind after cleansing and balance the pH of the skin. Most importantly, toners create an optimal environment that promotes the absorption of subsequent skincare products.
