Should you cleanse at night, let me clear that up for you?



Firstly why do we cleanse and why is it important to use a PH balanced cleanser?

The skins PH is acidic a cleanser will always have a alkaline PH. The more a cleanser is like soap or a facial wipe the lower the PH.

When cleansing this will strip the acid mantle (oil and water layer on the skin that gives it protection) dehydrating and unbalancing the skin.


This can lead to the following skin conditions:

Over active oil glands

Dehydration

Touch sensitivity

Coupe-rouse skin


It will also not emulsify make up and remove effectively therefore leaving the skin blocked. If you were to test a product like this and re cleanse with a mild milk based cleanser, you can always guarantee that you will still find make up on your skin.


Toners and astringents should be avoided by almost all skin types, especially those that are alcohol based. Agreed they remove the bad oils, but they don’t know any differentiation between what's good and what's bad. They strip the skin of ALL oils. If you feel you require toning to remove traces left, it’s time to change your cleanser.


I recommend IMAGE, because the product is PH balanced and will gently remove Make Up without striping. It is therefore not necessary to tone and it will remove make up effectively.


FACIAL WIPES A SWEAR WORD TO MY EARS.


They do not and will not cleanse the skin effectively. They do not emulsify make up and whats more concerning they imbalance the skin.

The PH of these products are to low and will strip the skin, causing imbalance and can lead to the following conditions in the skin.


Over active oil glands

Dehydration

Touch sensitivity

Coupe-rouse skin


For a quick cleanse alternative that can be rinsed with water, I love: IMAGE ORMEDIC CLEANSER
