BENEFITS OF A FACE WASH FOR WOMEN
Every woman’s daily routine can consist of many different skin care products and techniques depending on your skin type, personal choices, and concerns. But one thing to never forget is using a face wash or cleanser which is the first and foremost step no matter what follows after.
Let’s delve into why using a face wash is important:
1. CLEANSING IMPURITIES
You are exposed to a lot of dirt, pollutants and bacteria throughout the day. Along with the dirt, oil and sweat can accumulate on your face. This causes your pores to get blocked and lead to breakouts. Additionally, if you apply makeup to your face, the buildup of the same can clog your pores. Hence, it is vitally important to wash your face to remove all impurities and sweat. Using a suitable face wash or face cleanser will help you keep up your facial skin’s hygiene.
2. PREVENTING BREAKOUT
When regularly included in your skin care routine a face wash can help you do away with frequent occurrences of acne. Acne is caused by blocked or clogged pores and regularly using a face wash/cleanser can help prevent breakouts by keeping pores clean.
If you have oily skin, it means that your skin is more prone to acne. You can use the NIVEA Milk Delights Face Wash- Fine Gramflour which will help you get rid of excess oil while gently cleansing your face with the goodness of milk.
3. SKIN HYDRATION
Face washes like the NIVEA Milk Delights Face Wash- Honey can help you deeply and gently cleanse your face while maintaining the natural moisture balance in your skin. The goodness of milk provides deep cleansing which ensures getting rid of all the grime. The richness of honey helps prevent water loss to keep your skin nourished with hydration.
The accumulation of dead skin cells and grime on your face can make it appear dull, lifeless and aged. Using a face wash removes dead skin cells, allowing fresh, radiant skin to shine through. Furthermore, massaging your face with an appropriate face wash stimulates blood circulation in your skin. This stimulation promotes glow and collagen formation, causing your skin to shine with health, brightness, and youthfulness.
5. HELPS OTHER PRODUCTS PENETRATE
When your face is free of dirt, oil, and pollution it allows other products to absorb more effectively into your skin. Whatever you use for your regular skin care a face wash sets down the appropriate foundation with a clean, fresh, and hygienic surface for the vital agents to enter your skin, giving what your skin requires.
HOW TO APPLY A FACE WASH?
You understand why you should never skip a face wash, but what if you don't use it correctly? If you make mistakes like scrubbing your face too hard or washing your face with extremely hot water you may cause skin irritation and even breakouts. This is why, while using a face wash/cleanser isn't rocket science, it still requires sufficient care and attention to avoid skin issues.
This is why we bring you 5 easy steps to make the best use of a face wash:-
STEP 1- WET YOUR FACE
The first step is to splash cold or lukewarm water on your face to make it wet or damp. This is done to ensure that the face cleanser lathers nicely. Hot water should be avoided since it can irritate your skin.
STEP 2- MASSAGE
After wetting your face, pour a few drops of a face wash on your palms and rub them together. Then massage the cleanser on your skin, gently in circular motions. Massage well from your forehead to your neck.
Be careful not to scrub too vigorously, since this could wind up irritating your skin, which could result in skin disorders such as inflammation, irritation, or redness.
STEP 3- RINSE
After a good massage, rinse thoroughly, with cold or lukewarm water. Don’t forget to rinse near your hairline, ears and neck. Again, avoid using hot water as it can irritate your skin.
STEP 4- GENTLY DRY
After washing the face wash/cleanser pat your face dry gently with a clean and soft cloth. It's usually a good idea to have a separate towel for your face and your body because the skin on your face is more delicate.
STEP 5- MOISTURISE
After drying your face, lock your skin with a suitable moisturiser. Applying the moisturiser will help you fight extreme dryness or extreme oiliness, both of which can cause many skin conditions. You may consider using NIVEA moisturising creams that are enriched with high emollient properties and help you upkeep your skin’s hydration requirements.
