Microdermabrasion: Skin Cleaning Done Better

Is a facial cleanser enough to get rid of deep-seated dirt? Check out this experiment we did using UV makeup.

The skin is our first line of defense against infection. (1) It shields our bodies from environmental pollutants that can cause diseases. 

Dirt can accumulate on our skin which leads to several skin concerns. When we forget to wash off makeup or leave on excessive oil build-up, we make our skin prone to acne and irritation.

We should care for our skin to keep it in tip-top shape. The most common way to do so is to use a good-quality skin cleanser. But, do you think washing alone gets the job done?

Think again.

Skincare Routine Add-On?

When you don't cleanse efficiently, the dirt gets trapped in your pores. It could accentuate your pores and stretch them out, making them look bigger. It also becomes a barrier that prevents your moisturizers and creams penetrating deep into your skin.

Not all facial cleansers can remove all the gunk, makeup, and excess oil in 1 go. Some facial cleansers also leave a residue when not rinsed properly. Most of the time, you will need to double cleanse to get as much dirt off. 

Inefficient cleansing reduces the effectiveness of your aftercare facial creams and keeps your skin dull and rough to the touch.

The picture above shows that using the best cleansers does not guarantee clean skin. Adding another level of exfoliation to your routine helps in effectively getting the job done.
