5 Benefits of Using a Quality Facial Cleanser


 While there are many more benefits to using facial cleanser as part of your skincare routine, let's get into the top five benefits of facial cleanser and why you should be using one every day!


1. Facial Cleaner Benefits - Removing Impurities: 


Our skin accumulates impurities throughout the day, including dirt, bacteria, pollutants, excess oil, dead skin cells, and even SPF. Impurities clog pores and cause acne, blackheads, and dull skin. During the summer months, our skin is prone to even more congestion, so cleansing is incredibly imperative. Facial cleansers cleanse the skin by removing impurities and allowing it to breathe. Your facial cleanser can help prevent breakouts and promote a clearer complexion by removing dirt, excess oil, and daily impurities. 


2. Facial Cleanser Benefits - Balancing the Skin's pH:


Something many may not know is that our skin has a natural protective barrier known as the "acid mantle", which helps maintain an optimal pH level. External factors like pollution, weather conditions, and using alkaline-based products can disrupt your pH-balance. Facial cleansers formulated with gentle, pH-balanced ingredients help to restore our skin's natural acidity, strengthening its protective barrier. By preserving the pH balance, cleansers contribute to healthier, more resilient skin.


3. Facial Cleanser Benefits - Enhancing Absorption of Skincare Products: 


It is often overlooked that facial cleansers can improve the absorption of following skincare products. Our skin can better absorb serums, moisturizers, and other treatments when it is free of buildup and impurities. This is why facial cleanser is typically the first step in a skincare routine. Your skincare routine will be more effective if you use a cleanser first. By doing this, you ensure that the products you apply afterwards can penetrate deeply into your skin and deliver their intended benefits!

4. Facial Cleanser Benefits - Preventing Premature Aging: 


Besides causing other skin problems, the accumulation of pollutants and free radicals can also accelerate aging. These external factors break down collagen and elastin. This leads to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and even skin firmness loss. It is possible to preserve your skin's appearance while promoting a more radiant complexion by thoroughly cleansing with a quality facial cleanser.


5. Facial Cleanser Benefits - Hydrating and Nourishing: 


While facial cleansers primary focus is to remove impurities, many formulations also include ingredients that hydrate and nourish your skin as well. Look for cleansers with moisturizing ingredients that help to replenish your skin's moisture barrier such as RENU Purifying Gel Cleanser. With green tea leaf extract, camellia oil, and honeyquat, this cleanser provides antioxidant protection and moisture retention. As an added bonus, it contains dead sea salts, which are rich in magnesium and boosts the hydration process while strengthening the skin's lipid barrier. Cleansers that contain antioxidants, vitamins, or botanical extracts will provide your skin with additional nutrients!

How to Properly Use Your Facial Cleanser


Now that we’ve covered all of the great benefits of incorporating a quality facial cleanser into your routine, let’s go over how to properly wash and cleanse your face! To maximize the benefits of your face wash, it is important to follow the proper usage technique's. It is recommended to wash your face twice a day, ideally morning and night.


1. Wet your face with lukewarm water to help open up your pores. You'll want to avoid using hot water as this can not only cause inflammation and redness on your skin, but it can strip your skin of it’s natural oils as well.

2. Take a small amount of face wash and gently massage it onto your face while using circular motions. Concentrate on areas that are prone to oiliness and blemishes. Avoid scrubbing too hard so as to not irritate the skin. Be gentle, allowing the face wash to do its job.

3. Rinse your face thoroughly with lukewarm water to ensure all product residue is cleansed and removed from your face.

4. Pat your face dry with a clean towel and make sure to avoid rubbing aggressively to prevent unnecessary friction on the skin.
