At Nakin we believe that using strong facial cleansers is something that should be avoided as it can really throw skin off balance and cause all sorts of issues. We are mostly talking about facial cleansing agents such as strong foaming agents, sodium lauryl sulphate, synthetic vitamin C and glycolic acid. But also, conventional cosmetic ingredients such as parabens, artificial fragrance and dyes. Strong facial cleansers that leave skin feeling squeaky clean are too harsh for skin, and this drying out causes the oil glands to overcorrect. This is why we never use them in any of our Natural Anti-Ageing Skincare.
While strong face cleansers may seem like they are getting the job done, they can actually be doing more harm than good. Strong cleansers can strip the skin of its natural oils, leaving it feeling dry and irritated. Additionally, these cleansers can disrupt the skin's delicate pH balance, which causes stress to skin and can lead to disruption. If you're concerned about cleansing too harshly, opt for gentler cleansers like our Nakin’s Natural Cleansing Milk and Nakin’s Purifying Face Toner. The cleansing milk is a lotion non-foaming gel formula and is infused with hyaluronic acid, grape seed oil, pomegranate and seaweed, to gently cleanse while helping to restore and maintain the skin's natural barrier. Additionally, it is suitable for all skin types, even those with sensitive skin. The toner is perfect for use after the milk to wipe away the last traces of cleanser, revive and detox the face and neck. It is also infused with hyaluronic acid, glycerin, aloe and seaweed to provide skin with an all over conditioning treatment. Suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin. Both are vegan, cruelty free and made in the UK.
A gentle face cleanser is an especially important part of a daily skincare routine. It helps to remove dirt, oil and makeup from the skin, while also keeping it hydrated. There are many benefits to using a gentle face cleanser, including:
- Reduced irritation: A gentle face cleanser will help to reduce irritation and inflammation of the skin. This is especially important for those with sensitive skin.
- Moisturising: A good face cleanser will help to keep the skin moisturised, preventing dryness and flakiness.
- Cleansing: A gentle face cleanser will thoroughly cleanse the skin without stripping it of its natural oils. This will leave the skin feeling refreshed and looking healthy.
- Prevention of breakouts: A gentle face cleanser can help to prevent breakouts by keeping the pores clear and free of dirt and oil, but without stripping skin.
If you are looking for a good gentle face cleanser, be sure to read the labels carefully. Choose a product that is designed for your skin type and that does not contain any harsh ingredients.
