The most important daily skin care is to clean our face.A good cleansing will make you fall in love with skin.
How to choose a good cleanser?
When purchase cleanser, ignore the brand factor, the main thing is to see the surface active agent. As for the smell (aroma), preservatives, more important is to look at personal preferences. Different surfactants builds cleansing products, will form a different sense of washing (at the same time the sense of washing will be affected by moisturizing ingredients, thickening ingredients and other effects) and cleanliness. Few cleansers are completely constructed with a single surfactant. Usually with several different surfactants to match up.
Soap-based cleanser is an anionic surfactant; soap-based cleanser is usually used fatty acids plus alkali ingredients to build cleanser products. Generally speaking, different fatty acids are slightly different after the formation of soap base. For example, the longer the carbon chain, the finer the foam, the better the stability of the foam; the soap formed by potassium hydroxide is somewhat softer than sodium hydroxide; the soap formed by triethanolamine may turn yellow. Common fatty acids are coconut oil acid, lauric acid and etc.
Amino acid type cleanser
Like the soap-based surfactants, the amino acid-based surfactants are also anionic surfactants. Which is mainly composed of an amino acid plus a fatty acid plus a base, such as sodium lauroyl glutamate. As a consumer, it is possible to focus on the lower amino acid moiety. In theory, the glutamate will make the skin feels fluff a little, suitable for partial dry skin, and glycine and alanine is relatively refreshing for a little oil.Compared to the soap base, the amino acid surfactant is more moderate, the cleaning power is weak, the bubble made of virtual, but more suitable for everyday use. Amino acid surfactants in a relatively special, that is, sarcosine, although amino acid surfactants, but not natural amino acids, but also more moderate.
The most common nonionic surfactants are alkyl glucosides, which have a better degree of mildness. Foaming is also good. Easy to be criticized because the wash sense may appear false slip, if you do not mind the problem, the alkyl glucoside class is a very good choice.
Surfactants such as betaine, alkyl amphoacetate is often combined with surfactants in various cleaning products. For example, betaine surfactants can be combined with anionic surfactants (amino acids) to stabilize the foam of the amino acid surfactant.
How long to keep cleanser on your face?
Some people probably cleansing time is about 1 minute. If the cleansing time too long, it may also cause excessive washing and easily form sebum, dry face, sensitive and other issues. Many people like the dense foam. Of course, there are a considerable number of people like no bubble cleanser. This does not conflict. Whether or not to use of foam cleanser will not affect your cleansing products cleansing ability. But will affect the use of time.
How to judge whether the face is fully clean?
Generally speaking, it is difficult to define whether the face is clean. If the skin care program has been biased towards a mild moisturizing class, but because of cleansing and skin tingling, swelling and even peeling, that is clean.
If there is no problem with the product before, but for the cleansing nausea acne, it may be clean not in place. But in most cases, over-cleaning may be more common. There must be two cases to check to see if their cleansing purchase is a problem, followed by cleansing time to see if and whether to use cleansing brush and other auxiliary means.
