The face wash is a skincare product that is applied to remove make-up, dead skin cells, oil, dirt and other types of particulate matter from the skin, helping to keep pores clean and prevent skin conditions such as acne, blemishes and marks. Finding the optimum cleanser can be tough given that there are so many options available today in the market. Knowing the difference between them will help you choose the best product for your skin type and make a proper skincare routine.
How does a face wash work?
The normal pH of the skin is between 4.5 to 6.5. when you clean your skin, there is an interaction that occurs between the face wash, the skin’s moisture barrier and the skin’s pH. Soaps contain harsh particles that can alter the skin’s protective layer and increase the pH, thus increasing the chances of irritation and other skin issues. Soap-free gel, cream and foam based face washes are created to be effective, but gentler, causing less irritation to the skin pH and almost no harmful effects to the skin quality.
Benefits of using a face wash?
Most of the environmental irritants and cosmetic products our skin comes in contact with are not water-soluble (hydrophilic), so washing the skin with water isn’t enough to remove them. They’re hydrophobic, and this, require a face wash. Face wash removes dirt, sebum, oil and dead skin cells- without damaging or harming the skin.
It is important to remember that a face wash should be used regularly. The best time to do so is every night before going to bed. But, it is beneficial to do so in the morning too in order to remove any toxins your skin releases during the nighttime.
