skin-cleansing-b-terraMARIA'S TIP: Never go to bed with your makeup on! The mix of the day's debris, dirt, and make up may clog your pores and choke the skin from breathing. Your skin needs to renew and rejuvenate while you are sleeping. Clogged pores can cause eruptions, infections, breakouts, blackheads, pimples, irritation, redness.

Remember Cleansing is an essential skin care step, even if you don't wear makeup. It is like brushing your teeth, should be done morning and evening, every day. Choosing the right cleanser is very important step. I recommend avoiding soap because of its high pH (alkaline). Most soaps are well over 7, and some as high as 10. A high pH (alkaline) soap will dry and age your skin, making it look lifeless. The skin's surface is mildly acidic, having a pH of around 5. Soaps with a high pH will not only dry the skin but also eliminate its acid mantle (coating on the surface).

The Proper Way To Cleanse Your Face

Moisten your face with warm water. Place a small amount of cleanser on the palm of your wet hand - about the size of a dime,rub the amount onto your fingertips and apply to the following areas, forehead, side of the face, under your eyes, your chin, down to your neck and decollate, using upward strokes, gently massaging into the skin.Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry with a clean cotton towel.

MARIA'S TIP: I don't recommended using tissue to remove the cleanse as it contains tiny wood fibers that can be harsh on sensitive skin. Tissues can also leave small amounts of residue on the skin.
