The 10 commandments of facial cleansing
Why is it so important to do facial cleansing well?
In these ten commandments we explain why proper facial cleansing helps keep your skin in good condition and also prevents the appearance of wrinkles, sagging, blemishes, etc.
The difference is visible between skin that has had continuous and respectful facial hygiene, and skin that has been subjected to aggressive products or poor facial cleansing guidelines.
Facial cleansing is the first step in your facial care routine. You should never apply your face cream without first cleaning your face.
If you moisturize your face without having cleaned it before:
a. You will be mixing all the pollution and dirt accumulated on your skin with the moisturizer and therefore you will be reintroducing that unwanted dirt and pollution.
b. Your body continually eliminates toxins through perspiration from the skin. If you don't wash your face before putting on your face cream, you will be reintroducing those toxins into your body.
Don't you brush your teeth at least twice a day?
Apply this same oral cleaning routine to your facial hygiene: you should wash your face twice a day, every morning and every night.
Then use your revitalizing spray or your Anti-Stress gel or cream.
Always use a facial cleanser WITHOUT SULFATE.
Sulfates are the ingredient that acts as a detergent. They are used in dishwashers, floor cleaners, etc. You can imagine how aggressive they can be for your face.
You can identify if your facial cleanser has sulfates by looking at the label where the list of ingredients appears.
Sulfates have the name "Sodium Laureth Sulfate or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate". Sometimes they can also appear by the initials SLS or SLES.
Although it may seem incredible, there are many products on the market that use these types of ingredients. They use them because they are very cheap, but they can be too aggressive for your skin.
Homo Naturals uses only glycosides (derived from sugar), which perform the same cleaning function but in a way that respects your skin.
Never never never wash your face with conventional bar soap. These soaps have a very high pH, which will destroy the invisible barrier of natural protection that your skin has (hydrolipid layer) and may unbalance it, causing redness, peeling, etc.
Apply your facial cleanser to damp skin, although our facial cleanser Extra Gent'sYou can apply it on dry skin. We love this option of applying it to dry skin as a mask, thus cleansing and purifying the skin more deeply.
You can let our Extra Gent's for a few seconds, although it is not necessary. No matter how long you leave it, you will not clean any more, since the cleansing happens when you remove the facial cleanser with water as it takes all the toxins and dirt with it.
If you wet your skin first, do it better with warm water, this will open the pores and get a deeper clean. Finish the rinse with cold water to close the pores again.
Always dry your skin without rubbing with a soft towel. The skin on your face is 5 times thinner than the skin on your body, and scratching it with a towel twice a day cannot contribute to unbalancing it.
Should I wash my face in the shower? We do not recommend you to put our Extra Gent's inside the shower since its container is made of glass and if you drop it, it can break and you can cut yourself.
Think about it: right you don't brush your teeth in the shower? You don't shave in the shower right? We recommend that you wash your hair and body in the shower and that you do your facial cleansing after the shower.
Try to associate the process of oral cleaning with facial hygiene. Do not use conventional soap or shower gel for your face. It can be too aggressive for your skin. Also, if you shower first, when you get out of the shower, your pores will be open and ready to apply our facial cleanser.
Features of a good facial cleanser for men
- Must not contain sulfates
- It should have the same pH value as your face: 5.5
- It must be a liquid soap, preferably in a cleansing cream texture, so that it is more respectful.
- It should clean in depth, since men have more open pores
- It should be skin protective, since having more combination skin than women, we tend to wash our faces more. Ingredients such as Aloe Vera, or Calendula are ideal.
