You’d think that we would all know how to clean our face; after all we do it every day.
During the course of our daily routines we get a build up of many different impurities on our face that can clog the pores and give us a washed out complexion.
These impurities come from grime, makeup, sunscreen, excess sebum and many other sources.
Some of these are a result of the area we live in and others are a result of the way we live.
Many of us touch our face throughout the day and many impurities that are on our hands get transferred to our face each time we touch it.
We can be in the habit of leaning on our chin at the office or even touching between our eyebrows with the end of a finger as we adjust our sunglasses.
All these actions can lead to a build up of dirt that can block our pores.
For these reasons it is important that we cleanse our skin, and washing it at least twice a day is essential to keep the skin clean and healthy and allow it to breathe.
You will need to get a skin cleanser that suits your skin, as some of them can be too harsh for people with sensitive skin.
It is best to test samples of skin cleansers after checking that you have selected a cleanser that is appropriate for your skin type.
Look at the label of the cleanser and see whether it is recommended for sensitive skin or if it is more suitable for oilier skin types.
Sensitive skin is often drier and a cleanser for oily skin will be too harsh and could cause a reaction.
By using a suitable cleanser each night you will be washing the impurities that have built up during the day from your pores.
This will allow you to sleep with a clean pillow in the night and not allow built up grime to create more problems for your skin.
