Cleansing your Skin

 

Cleansing is an essential part in your skin care regime. You should cleanse your skin few times a day but this practice should be according to your facial needs. The following are three basic ways to cleanse your skin.

Soaps:

There are a variety of soaps available in the market. They can be used for the purpose of cleansing. After using soap, you must always rinse the skin thoroughly this is because if Soap, is allowed to remain on the skin, it attracts dirt, and can also cause irritation to the skin. In hard water areas, soap residue if left on the skin can combine with the calcium and magnesium salts in the water to form a scum, which is really very difficult to remove. If the soaps are very hard they can damage the texture of the skin.

Cleansing Creams

Cleansing creams are also good for cleansing the skin. They can be made up of a variety of bases. From milks, lotions, foams, oils, gels and liquids.All these are rather closely related-much more than you can imagine. A cotton pad dipped in fresh milk is a cheap but equally effective cleanser. It should be noted that the cleanser should be rubbed gently on the skin feverishly scrubbing your skin could lead to skin damage.

Mechanical Cleansing Of Your Skin:

A recent concept in skin cleansing is epidermabrasion-that is, literally, mechanical rubbing off the dead cells from the skin surface. Soluble material are used to rub the particles out of the pores.
