One fundamental part of daily skin care is washing your face. It is as important as brushing your teeth every time after we eat food. We should wash our face twice a day with a cleanser that is appropriate for skin type and condition.
In the morning, our skin is ready to be nourished, or receive different treatments; and it is extremely important that we wash it before we apply these products so that they are able to penetrate our skin. During the day, our skin will also produce oil, which will be exposed to dust, contamination, etc. It is for this reason that it is extremely important to wash your face at night.
As mentioned previously, the cleanser that you use is very important. Our skin´s pH is acidic and we have to take care of this acidic layer in order to keep it healthy. Regular soaps are alkaline and even the neutral ones are more alkaline than our skin. It we use this type of soap our skin becomes weaker and loses its natural defence mechanisms. This is the reason why we should use a cleanser that has an acidic pH. There are cleansers for sensitive skin, for oily skin or skin that suffers from acne, for normal skin, for mixed skin and even cleansers that will rejuvenate the face.
