Is your skin lacking radiance? Do you get breakouts often? Are your pores visibly clogged? These could all be symptoms of an improper cleanser.
With so much focus on serums and moisturizers that promise healthier (and younger) looking skin, cleansing often gets put on the back burner. Not only is it important to remove makeup at the end of the day, but it is just as crucial for non-makeup wearers to properly cleanse the skin to remove the build-up of grime and dirt of pollution and elements around us.
It’s time to reanalyze the effectiveness of your cleanser.
First, remove eye and lip makeup using a makeup remover. Once you have taken away the majority of your makeup, cleanse the skin with a cleanser that is appropriate for your skin type and skin condition. For example: typically, foaming cleaners are excellent at providing a deep clean feeling, popular among those with oily skin, while those with a dry skin tend to reach for a cleansing balm or oil to feel hydrated as they cleanse.
My favorite cleanser is DNA Citrus Burst Cleanser. I love to use this cleanser in the morning because the smell of citrus is so invigorating. But many other cleansers have a lively citrus aroma, so what is so special about this one?
DNA Citrus Burst Cleanser is perfect for all skin types because it thoroughly cleanses the skin while simultaneously protecting its moisture balance. Translation: oily skin loves it because it provides a deep clean feel, and dry skin is thrilled to use a cleanser that does not strip away its natural oils. Packed with healing botanicals, DNA Citrus Burst Cleanser is rich in anti-oxidants and contains calming and firming qualities while refining the skin’s texture. It truly is the holy grail of cleansers; and at $36 it’s a no brainer! You can pick one up here. Within two weeks of use, morning and night, you will see a difference in your skin! Pro-tip: use your favorite cleanser with an at-home device such as the Clarisonic, to loosen the build-up of dirt and oil trapped in pores.
