The first step in taking good care of your skin is cleansing with a product that does not strip the skin of necessary moisture or leave behind a residue. A light, foaming gel can be the best solution for most skin types. Many people believe, or have been told, that they need only to cleanse once a day. This is not the best advice for healthy, beautiful skin. We need to cleanse twice daily to ensure the nightly routine of expelling oil, perspiration, and toxins does not inhibit products penetrating the skin. Additionally, cleansing helps decongest the hair follicles to help prevent congestion.
