Facial cleansing: tips and tricks for every skin type

Content:

Our skin is exposed to external influences and environmental impurities on a daily basis. Add to this the unconscious touching of our face with our hands and various objects and we quickly realise that facial cleansing plays an important role in our daily routine.

Cleansing not only removes make-up and impurities that accumulate on the skin during the day, but also prepares the skin for further care. Different skin types react differently to changes and products need to be adapted to suit their needs.

Dry skin needs nourishing cleansers that preserve natural oils. Oily skin needs products to remove excess sebum that do not cause dryness. Combination skin needs products that are adapted to the combined needs of the skin. Sensitive skin needs gentle products that do not irritate or cause allergic reactions.

Knowing and respecting these differences helps to keep the skin in balance.

The basics of facial cleansing

The way you cleanse your face can have a big impact on the way your skin looks. Not every cleanser is equally effective or suitable for every skin type, so it's important to follow basic cleansing guidelines to help ensure the best possible results and keep your skin looking clean and radiant.

1. Make-up and SPF removal

The first step in cleansing the skin is to remove make-up, SPF and other surface impurities.

These often clog pores, leading to breakouts and acne, so it's even more important to remove them thoroughly.

2. Cleaning

After removing make-up, a deep cleansing follows to remove any remaining impurities, excess sebum and dead skin cells and prepare the skin for further care.

It is important to wet your face with lukewarm water and apply the cleansing product with your fingertips, massaging it into the skin in circular motions. Then remove the cleanser with lukewarm water and pat your skin dry with a soft towel.

3. Moisturising and preparation for treatment

The next step is the pre-treatment preparation and the first step of intensive moisturising. Essences have replaced the role of toners, because nowadays the pH of the skin remains in balance with quality cleansing products.

Moisturising essences thus refresh and revitalise the skin and prepare it to better accept moisturisers.

4. Moisturising

The final step is to apply a moisturiser to hydrate the skin, make it soft and provide a protective barrier against external aggressors. Choosing the right moisturiser depends on your skin type and needs, but can include additional anti-ageing, mattifying or extra care ingredients.

When cleansing your face, avoid in particular:

  • Abrasive cleansing products containing alcohol.
  • Scrubbing the skin to avoid irritation and damage to collagen fibres
  • Washing the face with hot water, which breaks down the hypolipid protective layer and irritates the skin

It's not just how you wash your face that matters, but also when, how often and what type of cleanser you use.

For healthy skin, it is therefore recommended to do this treatment twice a day, in the morning and at night. In the morning to remove excess sebum and prepare the skin for the day's care, and in the evening to remove impurities and make-up, allowing the skin to regenerate while you sleep.

However, do not over-cleanse your face, as you can destroy the skin barrier, leading to dryness and increased sensitivity.

Choosing the right cleansing products

Choosing the right cleansing product is essential for achieving the desired results in skin care. An inappropriate choice can lead to many unwanted consequences such as dryness, irritation or even increased sebum production. Thus, it is important not only to choose a cleansing product accurately, but also to carefully consider the ingredients that are expected to have a positive impact on the specific needs of different skin types. 

For dry and sensitive skin, the Omega Cleansing Oil is ideal for gently removing make-up, SPF and impurities without drying out the skin. The combination of hemp oil, grapeseed oil and sea buckthorn ensures that the skin stays moisturised, nourished and maintains its natural balance.

The oil is also excellent for double cleansing, which thoroughly removes impurities from the skin and prevents clogging of the pores. Double cleansing improves the absorption of skincare products, leading to healthier and more radiant skin. For this type of cleansing, use the Omega Cleansing Oil as the first step, then repeat the cleansing process with the Purifying Face Cleanser

For those with normal, combination or oily skin, we also recommend the Purifying Face
Cleanser, which effectively cleanses the skin without irritating or drying it out.
Hemp hydrolat, chlorella algae and cedar essential oil help regulate sebum secretion, making it extremely suitable for daily use.

The importance of establishing a skin cleansing routine

Cleaning the skin may seem like a simple task at first glance, but in reality it requires a lot of attention, understanding and consistency.

That's why it's crucial to create a routine that suits you perfectly and find products that are perfect for your skin type. Remember, the skin is our largest organ and that is why it deserves all our care and attention.
