    Skin Cleansing – How to Cleanse Skin

    The market today overflows with an enormous variety of soaps and cleansers – from soaps for different skin types, foaming face washes to cleansing milks and gels, each claiming to have ’special ingredients’ specifically suited for your skin. With so many products on display, it is no wonder that one is confused, not only about whether cleansing is necessary at all but also about how to go about choosing and using the right cleanser. THE NEED FOR Skin CLEANSING Daily you are exposed to a lot of dirt, dust and pollution which cannot be removed by merely splashing some water over your skin. Natural ingredients like besan (gram flour), haldi (turmeric) and milk do not work when it comes to ridding the skin of the pollutants on its surface. The skin needs to be cleansed with an effective cleansing agent at least once a day, preferably in the evening. If the skin isn’t cleansed on a daily basis, this exposure to pollutants could build up and cause pigmentation, discoloration, dull skin and uneven tanning. While this could happen over a long period of time, even years, once it does, it is very difficult to treat. Hence, prevention is better than cure. Compare the skin on your face to the skin on any part of your body that is not exposed to the elements. You will find a difference in colour, texture, smoothness, radiance and firmness. Facial skin suffers due to exposure to all elements like the sun, pollutants, heat and dust. These tend to dry and damage the skin. Hence, you need a different cleansing routine for your face and the rest of your body. CLEANING YOUR BODY A clean body is a very important part of basic hygiene and maintaining good health. If you don’t clean your body well enough, you can get a host of infections. Use of mere water is not enough to keep the body clean and healthy. You need to use soap or a body wash, preferably one that suits your skin. However, you must also remember that if you over clean your body you will dry your skin out, and make it susceptible to allergies. Most of us use soap to clean our bodies. An effective soap washes dirt, dust, grime and undesirable oils off your skin but leaves behind enough natural oil or sebum in your skin to retain its moisture. How to Cleanse Your Face The best way to cleanse your face is to use warm water and a mild cleanser twice a day, probably in the morning and before you go to bed. It is a fairly simple process. To do it just right : Wet your face with warm water. Place a small amount of face wash, about the size of a 50 paise coin, on your palm. Use a soft sponge to gently rub the cleanser allover your face for fifteen to thirty seconds. Splash your facewith running warm water severaltimes (about ten times), until you feel that all the cleanser has rinsed off. Feel your face for signs of oily residue. Warm water is more effective to dissolve oil and impurities.
