While it may sound obvious, cleansing your face is the foundation of any skincare routine. You’re probably well aware of this already, right? Since you’re tuning into a skincare podcast, cleansing is probably second nature for you at this point. But the question is… are you cleansing your skin properly?
Although it may seem like the most straightforward part of your routine, cleansing is actually a fine balancing act. You want to remove excess oil, dirt, pollution, and sometimes makeup and sunscreen from the skin, but you also want to avoid stripping or drying the skin.
If you aren’t cleansing properly, it will absolutely affect how well your other skincare products perform…but if you are stripping or over-drying your skin when you cleanse, it can lead to a variety of other issues.
Even if you think you have your skincare routine down to a science, you might want to take some time to revisit the basics. That’s why today I’m sharing all my tips about how to properly cleanse your skin, as well as some cleansing myths and signs you are not cleansing correctly.
