facial cleanser for your skin type is not only the
first but the most important step in any skin care regimen.
Soaps are very harsh on aging skin.
Most soaps tend to strip
the natural oils from the skin and
can destroy the barriers that serve to protect the skin from daily
exposure to the elements.
A face wash that is homemade is a much
gentler and affordable option.
Not only does washing your face remove dead skin
cells, oil build up, dissolve impurities and the small particles of
dirt that collect on the surface of the skin but cleansing the skin
also improves circulation, protects against break-outs and stimulates
skin cell renewal.
Of course we all know that younger skin generates
cell renewal much faster than older skin, which makes carefully caring
for aging skin all that more important.
Who knew you could accomplish
so much by
simply washing your face?
skin care cleanser recipes do not
a foaming agent. If you want some foaming action, simply add a small
dab of a rich emollient based face wash product like Aveeno's soy
cleanser or a Burt Bee's natural skin cleanser.
Choose natural ingredients
that are fresh and at the peak of ripeness.
Making your own
facial cleansers ensures that the daily build-up of debris
gently washed away without stripping away the skin's essential natural
Oily skin types will want to lean towards a facial
cleanser that has an acid
base such as a citrus fruit.
Sensitive skin will benefit ingredients rich in emollients as well
as from the
healing properties provided by aloe vera and green tea.
To maximize the benefits of using a natural
cleanser, apply your homemade recipe to warm moist skin.
Use a circular
motion to gently massage the skin with the cleanser, then rinse well.
This face wash strategy will ensure a deep cleansing of clogging debris
from the pores which will leave the skin ultra clean, soft and supple.
Gently pat away the excess moisture, never wipe,
because over time this can stretch the tissue which inevitably lead to
sagging skin and those dreaded wrinkles.
