MYTHS AND FACTS ON FACIAL CLEANSING
Myth 1: Washing your face at the end of the day is enough.
Fact: Many still think that washing their face once a day at night is enough but this cannot be farther from the truth!
Skin experts have long recommended washing your face at least twice a day with a reliable facial cleanser. If you wore makeup the whole day, you may have to clean your makeup with a makeup remover before cleansing. Makeup leaves extra layers of dirt and grime that clog the pores if not properly removed.
Myth 2: Washing with soap and water is as effective.
Fact: There is still a misconception that using regular soap and water can effectively clean skin. This could not be more wrong!
Switching from soap to facial cleansers makes your skin feel and look better. Using a skincare product designed to effectively rid your face of the dirt and grime it acquired during the day can make a big difference.
Also, washing with lukewarm water and specially formulated skin care products can give your skin the yeouthful glow you are striving for!
Myth 3: Facial cleansers are only used after wearing makeup or after sweating heavily.
Fact: Many believe that facial cleansers should only be used after using makeup, or after engaging in strenuous activities like exercising when their skin is covered in sweat and excess oil.
However, the face often works like a sponge and sometimes even when one stays indoors doing nothing, dirt and excess oil can still get stuck in the skin! Products like facial cleansers and toners are specially formulated to cleanse the skin deeply and more thoroughly to achieve healthier, cleaner skin.
Always remember that specially formulated skincare products were crafted and created to ensure the health of your skin.
Myth 4: Facial cleansers are bad for adolescent skin.
Fact: No one is too young or too old to use a proper facial cleanser.
In fact, a proper skincare routine should already be adopted early on when one hits puberty. This routine should evolve as one gets older or during every stage of your life! When one enters puberty, bodies change and hormones can drastically change the skin’s condition.
These various changes lead to skin conditions like oily skin or severe acne. As one becomes older, the hormonal changes now affect skin elasticity and texture. This is the reason why there are so many skincare products that focus on specific conditions like wrinkles, dryness or blemishes.
Teens can and should start using facial cleansers. Most of the cleansers available on the market are suitable for all ages, but perhaps focus on ones that target acne for teens.
