The reality is that good skin care starts with proper cleansing. Daily washing should be the simplest part of your skin care routine, but sometimes we can develop bad habits, and that can lead to problems. Cleansing is the first step towards avoiding dry skin, excessive oiliness, clogged pores, and acne breakouts.
Cleansing your dry skin
Cleansing your skin every day is an essential element for having healthy skin. Even dry skin will collect dirt and debris from our going about, and from airborne pollutants. Even when we sit at home, we are still exposed to bacteria, perspiration and in some cases, smoke. Removing pollutants and toxins is necessary to build a foundation for youthful looking skin. What we hope to avoid, is systematically over-washing the skin. In some cases, what you might consider to be a dry skin condition is the result of continuous use of harsh cleansers that strip away the skins natural oil production. Cleanse your face by starting with clean hands. Use a soft washcloth to avoid irritation. Avoid any soaps that contain perfumes and other kinds of irritants. Consider using ZO NORMACLEANSE™ cleanser from ZO™ skin care products. If you are indeed suffering with dry skin; this product will gently cleanse, hydrate, and rejuvenate without disrupting your natural moisture barrier.
Cleansing oily skin
The most common reaction by those who have oily skin, is to scrub it until it is squeaky clean. In most cases, hard scrubbing is not an effective solution. People with oily skin need to gently exfoliate as they clean. Your dermatologist might recommend ZO OILACLEANSE™ from ZO™ skin care products, as a way to exfoliate and cleanse skin while reducing excess oil. Avoid hot water, as it is best to wash your skin with warm water. To dry off, gently pat your skin until it is only slightly damp.
