Cleansing is a basic but important part of everyone’s skincare regimen. It removes dead skin, dirt, oil, and makeup remnants off of the surface of the skin. Cleansing leaves the skin clean and refreshed, and also increases penetration and absorption of other useful anti-aging products or treatments.

While everyone needs to cleanse, it is of special importance for people with oily skin and acne as well as dry skin and eczema. Appropriate cleansing helps control the excess oil on the skin that contribute to the clogging of pores. Appropriate cleansers need to be used to avoid dryness and irritation, and it’s also important not to over-cleanse.
