Let's start a gentle routine for your face everyday !

Face cleansing is a routine that most of us adhered to. Well, as simple as it may appear, simply splashing water and applying your favourite cleanser may not be just it. Doing it the wrong way may hasten the aging process.

Getting rid of impurities – impurities build up as dusts and smog, and even our sunscreen deposits onto our face during the day. Having a good cleanser means able to clean deep into the pores to remove these impurities. Remember, clogged pores are a good substrate for bacterial infections.

Protective barrier – while a good cleanser is effective at removing all impurities onto the face, do avoid cleansers which are too strong which washes away the protective natural moisturizer on our face. Do select a cleanser, which do not create a lot of foam during washing as this is a sign that the cleanser may be a tad too strong for our face. Cleansers with microbeads that scrub our face to provide that additional cleansing effect should also be limited to 2-3 times a week as overzealous scrubbing may destroy the natural protective layer of the skin.

Returning its glory – After cleansing, do remember to replenish your skin with a nice layer of moisturiser to give your skin the re-hydration it needs. Skin that is well hydrated is less likely to develop wrinkles.

Do explore for the best skin care products for yourself. Remember, every individual is unique. What suits others, may not be suitable for you.
