The theory behind skin cleanses is that toxic substances and bodily wastes are often deposited in the fatty tissues below the surface of the skin. It turns out that there is a lot more to skin cleansing than soap and water. Here are tips for proper skin cleansing, turns out an old-school splash and scrub won’t do.
Find out what skin type you have
Is your skin, normal, oily, dry, sensitive or combination skin? This way you get to select the right products for your skin type and help prevent breakout.
How to cleanse your face
Wash your face twice a day
Just because your skin looks clean does not mean it is. Avoid ordinary bar soaps, use facial cleansers that are gentle and designed for your skin type, for example, ABOTANIQ’s Papaya Enzyme Cleanser that gets rid of makeup and impurities helps to remove dull surface cells and creates a more radiant, smoother complexion. Only rinse with warm water, extremes in temperature may irritate your skin and cause damage.

Exfoliate at least once a week
Gentle exfoliation rids your skin of the dead cells, resulting in smoother, brighter skin. Make sure to find a scrub that is suitable for your skin type.
A very important post-cleansing step is to moisturize by applying a topical moisturizer designed for your skin.
How to cleanse your body
Simple cleansing shower or bath
As important as it is to choose the right type of cleanser for your face, so is it for your body. You can use a loofah, scrubber, washcloth, or a natural bristle skin brush with a long handle to gently clean in little circles on every part of your body except your sensitive areas (for example, genitals). This also helps to exfoliate your skin. Using a clean towel, dry your entire body and immediately moisturize. The steam helps to keep your skin hydrous as the moisturizer sinks into your pores while they are still open.
Oil cleansing method
Sounds crazy, right? The basic idea of this skin cleansing method is to make the oil that is stuck in your pores, and has hardened with impurities go into solution with the cleansing oil. The result is a much more moisturized skin than conventional soap-based cleaners. Castor Oil is an example of a humectant that is used for skin cleansing. Olive Oil can also be used. The ratio of the oil mixture depends on your skin type.
Drink lots of water, and green tea, eat vegetables and reduce your sugar intake for that healthy skin glow.
So, in the end, which is the best skin cleansing method? The truth is, we all just need to find a method that suits us individually. There is none that is perfect.
