Cleansing 101 - Why Cleansing Is Important

23rd January 2019

Why Cleansing Is Important & The Benefits of Cleansing

Remember getting fed up with your mum constantly washing your face as a child, then as you grow up the nagging of ‘have you washed your face?!’; well we have another thing to thank our mothers for – regular skin cleansing is essential to maintaining healthy looking and feeling skin.

But why is cleansing so important?

Removes Build Up

Throughout the day your skin face is continually covered with bacteria, pollutants, viruses, dirt and dead skin cells. Cleansing removes all these impurities, without it your skin would have a thick layer of dirt and grime creating a barrier for other products to penetrate the skin properly.

Boosts Hydration

Cleansing helps to manage the PH levels in our skin, it enables sufficient water and production retention without which, we all know dry skin not only feels uncomfortable and rough but looks aged and wrinkled.

Helps Maintain Clear Skin

Excessive build up of dirt and grime also causes blockages of the hair follicles on our skin. These hair follicles are very important as they are a pathway to penetrating the skin, this is a two-way path. At the end of these follicles there are tiny glands and they produce an oil called sebum. This oil is our natural protection of all the external impurities our skin comes in contact with, if it can’t get through the pathway it can’t act as our skins first layer of protection.

This can also lead to inflammation of the skin as the sebum is trapped, finally resulting in acne. Big take out is cleansing decreases your chance of having an outbreak.

Additional benefits of cleansing;

• Keeps your skin looking radiant and healthy
• Helps anti-ageing products and treatments work properly
• Helps to maintain proper pore size
• Encourages proper skin hydration
• Prevents the production of excess oils
