Why Skincare Should Start with Facial Wash

What the Skin Faces Every Day

Before you put on any skincare or makeup product, do you know how much dirt and pollutants are congested inside the pores, causing skin concerns? 

 

  • Environmental Stressors
  • Oils
  • Dirt and Pollutants

As the largest organ in the human body, our skin is constantly exposed to an environment that’s less than ideal. Imagine what our skin must go through every second, in order to keep dirt and toxins away from our internal organs, and the top layer of the skin (stratum corneum) would need to trap all the dirt and pollutants so that we can stay healthy and alive. Germs and bacteria also grow on the skin, together with sweat, oil and environmental stressors, everything gets congested on the surface of the skin and within the pores, the sebaceous glands continue to excrete oils even when we are sleeping, so it’s fair to say that we need to cleanse our skin properly every day. 

 

What Does Pore Congestion Do ? 

  • Blackheads
  • Chronic Inflammation 
  • Sensitive Skin
  • Thick/coarse Texture

When all the dirt and pollutants get congested on the skin’s surface, the pores can easily get clogged, forming blackheads, whiteheads and even may cause inflammation and irritation, which can accelerate skin ageing and worsen acne conditions. Without proper skin cleansing, the pores won’t be able to breathe properly, and any skincare ingredients put on top of these dirt may irritate the skin, rather than take care of it. Needless to say, nobody wants pore congestion and cleansing the facial skin daily should be an essential part of daily routine.

 

Benefits of Correct Facial Cleansing 

1. Pore Decongestion

Taking the right actions to cleanse the facial skin will first allow the pores to become less congested, as the congested oils and dirt get dissolved by the cleanser, the skin should instantly feel refreshed and decongested. 

2. Instant Brightening

A thoroughly cleansed fresh skin should always look brighter. Why? The pollutants and oils on the surface of the skin usually trap the other dirt and germs that can cast a dirty shield to make the skin look dull. By thoroughly cleansing the skin's surface, the skin should return to a clean canvas for nourishment and active targeting for blemishes.

3. Prepared to Absorb

The skin's barrier is strong enough to keep the active ingredients from getting in. That's why well formulated skin care products are extremely important, as ingredients themselves are not capable of entering the skin's barrier, unproven formulas and products would be nothing but a waste of efforts. Even well formulated products require a clean and ready skin canvas for the active ingredients to be absorbed and provide the intended results. Washing the skin correctly would allow the pores to be cleansed and open temporarily, and this means the skin is ready for the targeted active ingredients to be best absorbed, and that's when you see a much better skin care result.

 

What is a Good Facial Cleanser?

  • Gentle
  • Dissolve Congestion
  • Retain Skin Barrier

A good facial wash should be gentle, because you don’t want to damage the skin’s natural barrier functionalities. Cleansing the facial skin is to help clean up the skin’s natural environment so that it can work better. Bear in mind that the real task of a good cleanser is to cleanse, so if a cleanser claims to be gentle but without performing its intended function to actually remove the dirt and pollutants within the pores, then it would be a waste of time and money. H4O Resolve HD Face Wash is a great option for everyone for a thorough daily cleansing as the gentle wash foam dissolves dirt and oils, leaving the skin refreshed and breathable.
