If you heard that a friend stopped washing her face, you might give her a weird look and start looking for signs of dirt and grime on her complexion. After all, everyone knows that washing your face is the key to gorgeous, clear skin. However, while cleaning is still a necessity, soap isn’t.
Glamour Magazine’s beauty blog recently pointed out that cleansing oils and makeup removing waters are all you really need to remove makeup and rid your face of the daily accumulation of dirt and bacteria. They’re often less irritating and drying than soap, which is good news for ladies who have sensitive skin.
Use an oil cleanser, which is gentle, yet effective at deep cleaning your pores either day or night. After rinsing your face with water, follow up with a toner like Moisture Balance Toner from Exuviance. The product will purify your skin, calming problem areas and tightening pores. Even without using your tried-and-true soap, you’ll notice that your skin is more radiant than ever!
