5 CeraVe Cleansers Your Skin Care Arsenal Needs…Stat!
August 1-7 marks National Cleanse Your Skin Week. Declared by CeraVe—one of our favorite brands in the L’Oreal portfolio—National Cleanse Your Skin Week brings awareness to a crucial step in everyone’s skin care routine: cleansing. Read on for a refresher on why daily cleansing is so important—plus, a handful of our favorite CeraVe cleansers that can kick off the second annual celebration!
THE IMPORTANCE OF CLEANSING YOUR SKIN
National Cleanse Your Skin Week couldn’t come at a better time. Of course, daily cleansing is important year-round, but heightened awareness during the warmer seasons—when sweat and impurities can accumulate on the skin’s surface more frequently—is beneficial.
As a reminder, washing your face twice per day, morning and night, is an important step of any and every skin care routine—no matter your skin type. So important, in fact, it’s a step that comes before all others in a routine. Why is cleansing so important, you ask? The answer is quite simple. On a daily basis, your skin is exposed to dirt, oil, grime and makeup too that—when left on your skin—can clog your pores and lead to breakouts, blackheads, and a dulled appearance. By incorporating a cleanser into your routine, you can effectively help remove these impurities before they have the chance to wreak havoc on your skin, all while helping to improve the look, texture, and tone of your complexion. So the next time you want to head to bed with a full face of makeup on, remember this: Catching Zzz’s with a dirty complexion can have devastating consequences! If given the option to help avoid them, why not take it?
