These Are Just A Few Reasons Why Using A Cleanser Is So Important

If you’re not washing your face at least twice a day, you’re leaving your skin exposed to some scary elements that can wreak havoc in so many ways. Uncleansed skin leads to breakouts, accelerated signs of aging and dullness, which not only make you look older but actually age your skin without you even knowing.

Here are just a few of the many reasons why it’s important to cleanse your face twice a day.

It Helps Keep Your Pores Clean

breakouts, , skincare tips, pores, cleansingPores are tiny openings in your skin that can take in everything in their surroundings. On your face, they can easily be clogged by factors like dry skin, a buildup of dead skin cells, or dirt and oil becoming stuck beneath the surface. When this happens, breakouts start to pop up and no matter your age, you’re susceptible to it.

When pores are clogged, they appear enlarged and give free radicals, the elements that accelerate aging and wrinkles, a home to thrive in and cause problems on your face. Cleansing twice daily is a very easy way to make sure your pores stay clear of free radicals and buildup and keep your skin looking youthful, bright and healthy.

It Promotes Proper Skins Hydration

What you’re washing with is an important part of your skin’s hydration. Drugstore brands and traditional foam cleansers can disrupt your skins pH balance and leave your skin stripped of its natural oils resulting in dry or combination skin.

Make sure that when you’re cleaning twice a day, you’re using an oil-based cleanser. It works with almost every single skin type to address oil production and pH levels that are suitable for you. The result is clean, hydrated and glowing skin with no dullness in sight.

It Helps Anti-Aging Treatments Perform Better

Without daily cleansing, you’re throwing your money down the toilet on anti-aging products because they’re not even able to do what they are made to do.

How To Build An Amazing Skin Care Program That Only Takes Minutes A Day

An effective skincare regimen is absolutely imperative if you want to look your best.  It might seem impossible to fit it into your schedule. But there’s  a way to keep your wallet happy and not spend more than a few minutes a day taking care of it.

Remember, your skin is constantly exposed to a variety of elements that can make it look dry, worn down, puffy, or wrinkly. And your body just can’t manage all of these different problems on its own. With the right “tools” your skin will look fresh and youthful all day long.

While there are quite literally millions of products out there, you only actually need a couple to target your specific needs. There are a few tweaks that have to be made between different skin types, but overall there’s a base from which everyone can benefit.

That base consists of four things: a cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturizer. Get those four things right, and you’re well on your way to a more youthful look!

Clean It Up

south beach skin lab knows a lot about skinYour cleanser serves the vital function of eliminating leftover makeup, germs,  and dirt that your skin picks up during the day. These contaminants can clog your pores, creating unsightly blackheads and blemishes.

The rest of your base products will work best on a “blank canvas.” That just means if you use a cleanser, everything else has an easier time cleaning dirt molecules. If you don’t, these molecules can prevent toners and serums from penetrating your skin the way they’re supposed to.

The best cleansers, like South Beach Skin Lab’s Olive Oil Cleanser contain organic ingredients that won’t irritate your skin. They’re also moisturizing, as many soaps actively dry out your skin and make it more susceptible to wrinkles.

Many women also use their cleansers sub-optimally. Remove the bulk of your excess makeup with warm water alone. Hot water dries out your skin and again your cleanser won’t be able to penetrate past the surface until most of the makeup is gone.

Once you find the right cleanser, you’ll typically apply a small amount to your face and spread it using a gentle circular motion for one minute. This ensures that the active ingredients have enough time to do their work. When finished, make sure to completely rinse everything off.

Watch Your Tone

skin regimens are importantToner is best viewed as an extension of the cleansing process. It helps to remove any contaminants that your cleanser may have missed. On top of that, it gets rid of any excess cleanser that you failed to rinse off.

The best way to apply toner with on a cotton ball or gauze. Both ensure that you use only what you actually need. This helps to increase the life of your product. They also eliminate dead skin cells, preparing your skin to receive treatment serums.

A Serum A Day

get the right serum for your skin regimentSerums are often a catch-all term in the beauty section. There are eye serums, moisturizing serums, antioxidant serums, and nutritional supplement serums. Thankfully, you don’t actually need one of each to look your best.

Antioxidant serums are the most important because they provide a defense against the hazards your face is exposed to every day. That includes harmful UV radiation from the sun’s rays.

If you have baggy under-eye bags or swelling, applying an eye serum like the South Beach Skin Lab – Eye Lift Serum can also help remove them. When using more than one serum, make sure to apply the one with the thinnest consistency first and then build up to your thickest.

This allows them all to penetrate your skin. You should also wait at least 15 minutes between applying your toner and your first serum because the toner may not absorb properly otherwise.

moisturizer is important in your skin routine Moisturize Or Bust

A good moisturizer like the South Beach Skin Lab – Repair and Release Cream can be your best ally when kicking your skin regimen up a notch. It can keep your face looking plush and healthy. It locks in needed nutrients your skin craves. Not to mention it’s one of the best ways to beat wrinkles early on.

This is why at South Beach Skin Lab we know you don’t need to spend a million bucks for skin that looks amazing.  With these four product types in mind, you’ll be on the road to looking your best in no time.
