Cleansing your skin may be one of the most basic steps in your skincare routine, but it is also one of the most important. Washing your face at night will remove pore-clogging makeup, sunscreen, and sebum. Washing your face in the morning will remove any traces of oil and leftover skincare products, giving you a clean canvas to apply fresh products or makeup.
If that’s not enough, studies have shown that grime and pollution can actually age your skin. The tiny particles found in pollution can get lodged in your pores, destroying your skin’s natural protective barrier, and leading to cell damage and collagen breakdown. Cleansing your skin will prevent this and allow your skin to repair itself overnight.
However, as much as we love looking after our skin, washing our faces every single morning and night can get a little bit boring over time. Never ones to turn down a challenge, we did some research and discovered new cleansing products that will get the job done while injecting a little fun into our skincare rituals. With modern, result-driven technology and the latest ingredients, these new cleansers and cleansing tools have earned coveted spots in our skincare routine.
