The core of any skin care routine is cleansing it properly. There are hundreds of cleansers available, so how do you know which to choose? Many people mistakenly think they must scrub their face every night with a strong cleanser to get it clean, but this is not the case. In fact, using harsh products may cause irritation, dryness, peeling, and even breakouts. This may be especially problematic in the drier winter months.
After you cleanse your skin at night, it should be free of makeup and should not feel dry or tight. In the summer, you may choose a gel- or foam-based, fragrance-free cleanser. Some cleansers, such as those from SkinMedica® offered at Quinn Aesthetic Center, also contain proven active ingredients such as exfoliants and acne-fighting ingredients to give your skin an immediate boost before applying your other products. Our expert aestheticians can recommend a cleanser suited to your skin type. And, as your skin care needs change throughout the year, your aesthetician can work with you to adjust your routine so you continue to have gorgeous, glowing skin.
If you find that your skin starts to become dry and flaky as the winter months approach, switch to a gentle cleanser appropriate for sensitive skin. This will help add moisture to your skin, and will soothe any dryness or redness. Quinn Aesthetic Center’s Anti-Redness Cleanser is an excellent option for the drier months when skin needs more gentle care. It’s also a great choice year-round for those with rosacea, or with redness-prone or sensitive skin.
Note that if you use waterproof or long-wearing makeup, you may wish to use a separate, oil-based makeup remover before using your cleanser. If you don’t like the oily feel of some of these products, look for makeup removers that contain safflower, jojoba, or other plant-based oils rather than mineral oil. These tend to feel lighter and leave less residue. After removing your makeup, you can follow with your preferred cleanser to remove any last traces of oil and impurities.
