Is Facewash the Most Important Step in Your Skincare Routine?

It is not uncommon for fancy serums, masks, exfoliators and moisturizers to take all the credit for healthy, glowing skin, but it’s really the underdog that deserves all the credit. That’s right — without your facewash, you wouldn’t be able to achieve the clean and open foundation upon which all the other skincare products rely.

According to the co-founder of one innovative new facial cleanser, facewash is more important than most people realize. Though everyone washes their faces at least once a day (The ideal frequency is twice a day.), most people don’t realize the importance of this one basic step. Cleansing the face, according to the specialist, opens up the pores to the point where they’re the most vulnerable. Though this seems like a recipe for disaster, it’s actually the very step that allows the other products — including your moisturizers, serums and masks — to penetrate the skin. In short, washing your face not only cleanses and detoxifies your skin but also, it sets it up to receive all the vital antioxidants, nutrients, enzymes and oils that are in the rest of your products.

So, what should you do with the rest of your products? Don’t ditch them! They can be super effective, so long as they have a pristine canvas on which to work.

In conclusion, cleanser is a truly non-negotiable step in the skincare maintenance process. To simplify your skincare routine and really make the most of it, however, you need a quality cleanser that is jampacked with vitamins, antioxidants, cell-communicating ingredients and fragrance-free plant extracts and oils. Where can. You find such a product? You guessed it!
