Healthy skin requires a healthy lifestyle and healthy skin care products.
Facial skin is different than the rest of the skin on your body. Your face is exposed to many different elements all day long. As an Esthetician, the one thing I see on my clients faces more than anything else is dehydration. The skin on our face is more prone to water loss which results in that tight feeling you get after washing. Fine lines are also more noticeable because when the cells are depleted of water they shrivel up and make your face look like wrinkled tissue paper. There are many ways skin can become dehydrated. One way is what you use to wash your face with. Synthetic chemicals or detergents strip your skin of it's acid mantle and can make your skin even oilier or really dry and sensitive.
All of my facial soaps are 100% natural and are naturally moisturizing. Facial soaps are superfatted a bit more than body soaps to provide extra moisturization. They are unscented or very lightly scented with pure essential oils, facial clays, extra butters and skin nourishing ingredients that add new life to dull, sluggish complexions.
If your one of those people who don't wash their skin at night, I have one question for you. Would you go a whole day without washing your hands? Of course not! It's the same thing, your constantly touching your face throughout the day, your skin is coming into contact with who knows what, not to mention any make-up that was put on in the morning. Don't wait until bedtime to wash your face. Maybe it's easier for you to wash when you get home from work. The earlier you wash and apply your night time skin care the longer those active ingredients have to work on the skin.
