Sometimes we feel tired when we get home, and washing our face seems like too much work, but it is so important to take that extra step. And no, simply using a makeup removing wipe is not enough to cleanse your face and remove all the oils and bacteria that have accumulated during the day. Adding a cleanser to your skincare routine makes a significant difference, and we’ll explore it together.
How Cleansers Works
Facial cleansers are made with multiple ingredients, some are beneficial, and others not as much, but that depends on the brand you use. Many people are accustomed to strong formulas that leave your skin feeling taut and squeaky clean, and mistakenly believe that’s the sign of a good cleanser. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Gentle formulas with hydrating ingredients are equally effective at getting past the surface of the skin to attract all the build-up (oils, dirt, makeup, etc.) so that they can be easily rinsed away.
5 Reasons To Start Using A Cleanser
There are so many cleansers to choose from, so if you are unsure of where to start, or which cleanser has the best ingredients that will benefit your skin, we recommend our Feel Good Cleanser. Not only does it have plant-based ingredients that will bring out the best in your skin, but it’s gentle and also works for all skin types.
1. Removes The Build Up
Cleansers free your skin of dead surface cells, makeup, excess oils, bacteria, and pore-clogging debris. This accumulation is harmful to the skin, and it’s important to cleanse and allow our skin to breathe and refresh while we sleep.
2. Good For Circulation
When we cleanse, we massage the cleanser into our face which promotes blood flow and oxygen into our skin. This will reduce puffiness and increase collagen production, a wrinkle prevention miracle!
3. Boosts Hydration
Cleansing allows our skin to rehydrate naturally. By removing all the gunk from our face, our natural oils can fortify and nourish our skin.
4. Helps with the use of other products
Cleansing is critical if you use serums, moisturizers, toners, or face masks because removing debris allows these other products to penetrate your skin. Using a simple makeup wipe won’t allow the other products to get properly absorbed by your face.
5. Clear skin
By cleansing, we are improving blood flow, allowing oxygen into our skin, allowing our natural oils to work, and making way for other products to be adequately absorbed. In doing so, we begin to see clearer skin as a result.
As previously mentioned, our Solluna Feel Good Cleanser has nourishing and organic plant-based ingredients that work for all skin types. It is gluten-free, non-GMO, vegan, and certified cruelty free.
The Feel Good Cleanser can also be used as a makeup remover and should be incorporated into your regular nightly routine.
When Should You Clean Your Face?
It is recommended to clean your face twice a day. Once in the morning and right before bed. I
If you’re not going to wash your face twice a day, face washing at night is the most important. You’re able to wash away the pollutants, dirt, and oils that accumulated throughout the day. If you wear makeup, our Feel Good Cleanser will help you remove that too (not all skin cleansers are formulated to remove makeup).
As you sleep, your skin undergoes some changes; skin cells get replaced, oils moisturize your face, etc. A morning cleanse helps you get rid of excess oil and dead skin cells so you’re ready to start a new day.
The Application Process
If you don’t use regular cleansers the correct way, it can result in dryness, oiliness, and breakouts. However, the Feel Good Cleanser by Solluna contains moisturizing agents that gently take care of your skin without the risk of dryness.
Cleanse Correctly Using The Following Process:
- Wash your hands
- Remove Makeup (if you’re wearing heavy make-up you may want to remove with a product specifically designed for makeup removal before the Feel Good Cleanser)
- Warm-up cleanser in your fingers with a bit of water to damp skin
- Using your fingertips, massage, and distribute the cleanser evenly using slight pressure (don’t forget your neck!)
- Splash warm (never hot) water to rinse
- Pat your face dry with a towel. Avoid harsh rubbing
