The importance of washing your face

The title already says it very well, but you will still ask me: yes but me, I wash my face with water, so why use a cleaner?

I will answer: first, the face secretes sebum, which is a fatty substance, as everyone knows. The water may seem to clean, but I want to make it clear that it is only on the surface. Sebum fills skin pores and blocks them, hence the importance of washing your face with a product designed to clean thoroughly.

During my experience, I often heard people tell me that water was enough to wash your face. Faced with this, my question is: why wash the rest of the body with soap while the face is the part most in contact with the air, pollution, makeup or any other messy element? Honestly, look at it like that: sebum is created naturally, so at first we have a layer of fat in the face. Some people use makeup, in this case, we add another layer. There are also microparticles due to air pollution and dead cells that accumulate and lodge in the pores of skin ... And you will tell me that in the evening, when you want to clean all that, you do not use only water? The health of your skin is not only related to the hydration you bring to it. Yes, without a doubt, it's an important element, but cleaning should be just as important.

It is very useful to know your skin type, because our routine and the products we use will vary from one type of skin to another. Is it oily, dry, mixed, or sensitive and reactive? Oily skin does not need a rich cleansing milk to be clean; it will need more a cleaning gel. On the other hand, a dry skin, normal or sensitive will be delighted and radiant with this same cleansing milk! It is therefore essential to know his skin type to use the appropriate products to it. I attach great importance to this point because in the past, my skin has received products that did not work at all with my skin type ... to finish with results contrary to those desired.
