Cleansing skin is the first step in your daily skincare routine. A face cleanser washes away dirt and debris, sweat, and excess oil, leaving skin refreshed and ready for the next steps in your skincare routine: exfoliation and moisturiser. Treatment products work best on skin that’s fresh and clean.
Would you take a shower with your clothes on? Of course not. You shouldn’t wash your face with your makeup on, either. If makeup isn’t properly removed before washing your face, it creates a barrier between your skin and cleanser, preventing you from removing that end-of-day buildup.
Anyone who has ever slept with makeup on knows the benefits of eye makeup remover. Leaving makeup on can contribute to clogged pores and dry skin, and could even lead to eye irritation. That’s why finding the best makeup remover for you and cleansing skin before bed is a must. Wondering how to remove makeup? At night, use a makeup remover or cleansing balm to like our Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm dissolve makeup. Then, wash with a facial cleanser to remove sweat, pollution, dirt, and excess oil.
The answer is a resounding yes. Cleansing skin clears away dirt and debris so exfoliation can do its job. If you want great skin, exfoliation is the difference-maker. Sweep away loose, dulling flakes after using your makeup remover and facial cleanser, and you will see a radiance boost. For oilier skins, twice-daily exfoliation helps minimise excess oil and keep pores clear. For drier skins, it helps remove surface flakes that can be a barrier to moisture absorption. Explore our collection of exfoliators to find the right one for your skin type.
To keep your skin always clean and fresh, make sure to use your cleanser or face wash twice daily, morning and night.
