Skin cleansing: Adopt the right habits

Exposed to numerous impurities such as pollution, dust, or sweat, your skin needs to be cleansed at least once a day. Additionally, since it is constantly renewing itself, it’s important for you to be able to opt for a skin cleansing routine capable of removing excess sebum, dead cells, and toxins. What are the right habits to adopt in order to maintain a fresh complexion and radiant skin? How to properly cleanse your face? We answer your questions.

Why is cleaning your skin important?

Cleaning your skin means removing dirt and impurities that accumulate throughout the day, as well as dead skin cells that build up. And in order to protect itself from the constant assaults it faces, your skin produces sebum, which can mix with bacteria and dead cells. The consequence? It becomes clogged, your pores enlarge, and your skin loses its radiance.

But a good facial cleansing routine also prepares your skin for the application of your skincare products. Thus, clogged pores won’t be able to properly absorb your face cream, serum, or night cream. The active ingredients in your favorite products will be able to more easily penetrate the deeper layers of the epidermis.

How to properly clean your skin daily?

Did you know? Double cleansing remains the most effective skin cleansing solution. So, before cleansing, remember to properly remove your makeup using a product suitable for your skin. The Intense 3-in-1 Cleansing Balm-to-Oil is an ideal option, regardless of your skin type. Its dense and melting texture gently removes all impurities as well as all types of makeup, including waterproof makeup.

Once the makeup removal step is done, it’s time to move on to cleansing your skin. And for this, you have a choice of myBlend products that are both gentle and effective.

Its action offers you a fresh skin effect day after day. Equally effective and suitable for all skin types, the Enzyme Cleansing Foam also has a grain-free micro-exfoliating action. Creamy, it is concentrated in papaya enzyme and removes impurities, makeup, and excess sebum. Remember: don’t forget that it’s important to cleanse your skin morning and night. Indeed, while in the evening you remove makeup and residues from the day, in the morning, your skin also needs impeccable cleansing. An effective way to remove excess sebum, sweat, and toxins that have been released overnight.

Think about exfoliation: the essential ally of your skin cleansing routine

Regularly exfoliating your skin remains essential if you want to maintain a radiant complexion. Indeed, if dead skin cells are not removed, your complexion may appear duller, and your skin pores will clog more quickly.

Exfoliating your skin is therefore one of the essential steps in good cleansing. This action allows:

  • Removal of dead skin cells;
  • Improvement in the appearance of your skin;
  • Promotion of epidermal renewal;
  • Stimulation of blood flow to eliminate toxins;
  • Optimization of the absorption of your moisturizing products (cream, serum, etc.), among other benefits.

To do this, myBlend presents its Facial Exfoliating Gel-Cream with dual exfoliating action: both mechanical and enzymatic. Your skin is instantly clear, smooth, and radiant. Among its active ingredients are bamboo powder and papain for dual exfoliation, as well as organic shea butter and vegetable squalane for maximum comfort and suppleness.

What are the right steps for effective exfoliation?

To ensure that your exfoliation effectively complements the cleansing of your face, apply it to damp skin, avoiding the eye area. Massage to exfoliate from the center of the forehead towards the temples, gently rub the bridge of your nose towards the tip. Also, opt for very gentle movements on the cheeks. Finish with the lower part of your face, from the chin to the neck. Then rinse with clear water.

A good exfoliation should be part of your cleansing routine one to three times a week.
