When it comes to washing your face, it seems like there are an infinite number of methods to choose from. The biggest face-washing debate may be between the cleansing purist and the facial wipe user. So is one better than other, or do they cleanse the same?
Face cleansing wipes are easy to use because they come with a cleansing product already on them. Whether they are dry or pre-moistened like, Dermalogica Skin Purifying Wipes, these wipes are a must-have among the lazy girls of the world and are also great for travel. They’re even great at dissolving stay-all-day makeup, including waterproof mascara. But are wipes enough? Unfortunately, these seemingly perfect cleansers fall short when it comes to deep cleaning.
The essential step in any good skin care regimen are the traditional liquid cleansers we go to when we’re in the need of a good scrub. And because they are offered in a wide variety of formulas — from acne-fighting to ones for mature aging skin — there’s a cleanser out there for everyone. But unlike the prepackaged facial wipes, traditional cleansers need to be massaged onto your skin and then washed off.
Whats the Final Verdict?
To get the maximum benefits of a good cleanse, use both! Using wipes first will remove stubborn makeup and surface dirt and debris. A follow-up cleanse with a traditional liquid cleanser like, Dermalogica Skin Resurfacing Cleanser, will actually cleanse the skin and prepare it for better absorption of the the serums and creams you use after.
Now go wash your face!
