The process of cleansing removes

  • Dirt
  • Bacteria
  • Dead skin cells
  • Sebum
  • Sweat
  • Make up off the skin.

Cleansers and facial washes

These products are usually based on soaps or substances called Surfactants.They are often medicated BUT if you consider that they are on your skin surface for only a few seconds,these medications are hardly going to make any difference.If you are going to use a medicated cleanser then you should gently massage it into the skin and leave it on the skin for at least 3 minutes for the medication to do its job.

Cleansers for OILY SKIN should be oil free and should foam or froth a lot to aid removal of the oily film on the skin. The best washes are Gel based.

Body and facial exfoliating scrubs

These products are made up of a mixture of a cleansing agent/soap or surfactant material with abrasive particles suspended as the exfoliating agent.These abrasive agents come in various grades,from the very harsh sand type to the more gentler "microbead" type.This type of product is used to mechanically remove the top dead layer of skin(the horny layer).

These scrubs are an effective way of whisking away dead skin cells and dirt/grime off the skin to leave the skin clean and smooth.They give a wonderful glow,BUT if you scrub too vigorously,or if the scrub itself is too harsh for your skin type,you will end up making your skin over sensitive and get broken blood capillaries.Some of these products exfoliate by scratching and can leave the skin quite sore.These scrubs are best reserved for use on less tender parts of the body.(Back and Shoulders).

The abrasive agents used in these products are usually ground particles of Apricot nut shells,Walnut shells,Almond nut shells,Ground nut kernels,Polystyrene microbeads and pumice granules.
