Is Your Best Facial Cleanser Destroying Your Skin?

What is the best facial cleanser?

Well it should be:

  • be soap free and detergent free
  • be pH balanced
  • thoroughly cleanse the skin -- leaving feeling soft, moist and protected


The best facial cleanser should also prepare your skin for absorbing your anti aging wrinkle creams.....so you can be the maximum benefits.

And if you have troubled skin - your facial cleanser should be more effective than the typical homemade face wash for acne. It should also be gentle enough for aging skin too.

And, if you have clogged or enlarged pores - consider using a botanical clay facial mask once or twice a week after washing with your facial cleanser. 

This makes a great combination for really clean, clear, smooth skin.

How Does Your Skin Feel After Using Your Face Wash?

If face feels tight, dry, or greasy, it's probably due to the pH balance of your soap and or harsh foaming agents. These ingredients can destroy the skin slowly by eroding the acid mantel.

What Is The Acid Mantle?

The acid mantle is essentially the sebum (or oil) on your skin's surface. Its job is to protect your skin from environmental assaults and keep it hydrated and prevent premature wrinkling.

Many people have never heard about the acid mantle or how important it is not only for healthy skin, but also good looking skin.

But if you have acne, allergies, eczema, sensitive skin, flaky skin, dry itchy skin, or premature wrinkles chances are the pH balance of your skin is off -- due to harsh cleansers, toners, or makeup. The acid mantle can help protect the skin against:

  • the formation of blackheads
  • blemishes -- because it can inhibit bacterial growth and fungus
  • irritants, skin allergies, acne and other disorders


What's in Your Face Wash?

  • Check the ingredients of your current face wash. Does it contains theraputic ingredients?
  • Does it clean your skin deeply enough so it's ready to absorb your nourishing ani-aging creams?
  • Can it protect your skin from disorders such as aging, allergies, acne, eczema, irritation or other problems.

If you are following any of the skin remodeling techniques on this site or using any of the anti aging products recommended on this site - you may not be getting the full benefits if you wash face with harsh cleanser that irritate and clog pores.

Do you think you're using the best facial cleanser because it says “Mild” on the label?

That doesn’t mean that it won't disrupt the natural acid balance of the skin and accelerate skin problems and wrinkles.

So What's The Best Face Wash?

Basically, you need a mild cleanser that is within the skin’s natural pH range, that is free from harsh detergents, foaming agents and one that won't dry aging or sun damaged skin.

After a certain age, we not only need to clean the skin, but nourish it with theaputic ingredients that prevent aging, free facial damage, and enhance the absorption of your best skin creams and treatments.

Do you have sensitive or combination skin? 

This creamy cleanser is pH balanced so it works equally well on dry skin, oily skin, sensitive, or acne prone skin – all without irritation or excess dryness. And protect against aging.


Best Facial Cleanser Research

An interesting article published in the Indian Journal of Dermatology presented the results of a study on the pH range of commonly used facial soaps/cleansers.

Researchers found that very few cleansers had a pH balance closest to normal healthy skin.

Most common facial cleansers in the market were too alkaline and harsh for mature skin.

A good facial cleanser cream doesn't have to be expensive, but it should be as natural and gentle as possible. Especially, if you suffer from any type of skin condition like wrinkles, dry itchy skin or have dry skin due to menopause and aging.
