The best Natural Face Cleanser for All Skin Types - Rose Water

How to use rose water for fresh glowy skin


Most skincare regimens generally include three basic steps that are integral for a good skincare routine which are – Cleansing, Toning & Moisturizing. As the first step to healthy skin, cleansing plays a huge role and is much more than just washing your face. While most people generally tend to focus on moisturizing and hydrating products like face packs or facial oils, here’s why cleansing is so important and why you must choose Rose Water as your ideal cleanser.

What are Facial Cleansers?

A facial cleanser is a skincare product that is used to remove make-up, dead skin cells, oil, dirt, and other types of impurities from the skin by keeping your pores clean and clear. Simply put, facial cleansers are formulated to clean your skin. Not only do they help in unclogging pores but they also work wonders by gently exfoliating the skin without stripping it of its natural oils.

How do Facial Cleansers work?

Research shows that the normal pH of the average skin is somewhere between 4.5 and 6.5. While cleansing, there is an interaction between the cleanser, the skin’s natural moisture barrier, and the skin’s pH. Using skin care products that contain harsh chemicals can alter the skin barrier and increase skin pH which means increasing the chances of dryness and irritation. This is why natural face cleanser are better and are designed to be more effective, but gentler on the skin without disrupting your skin’s pH levels.

How and How Often Should You Cleanse Your Face?

Finding the right facial cleanser for your skin type is one step closer to washing or cleansing your face the right way. There are a whole lot of different cleansers on the market varying in consistencies and ways to use them. A general rule of thumb is to cleanse twice a day — once in the morning and once in the evening.

The reason for this is that when we sleep, our skin sweats and pores expel oil which makes us wake up with shiny greasy skin. So starting the day by washing your face is not only a fresh way to begin your day but your skin will also be grateful to you. After a long day at work and before hitting the bed, wash or cleanse your face to remove makeup, and any oil or dirt that were accumulated over the day. This way your skin can breathe and renew itself overnight.  The ideal way to cleanse is to start by washing your face with lukewarm water in a circular motion, starting in the center of your face and working outward with the facewash/cleanser of your choice.

What kind of cleansing do you need?

It truly depends on how much time you have on your hands, how much of that time you are willing to invest into your skin care regimen, how much effort are you willing to put in and what kind of products suit your skin. We recommend Ancient Living Rose Water since it not only cleanses but also tones your skin, making it an excellent and efficient product.

What are the benefits of cleansing?

Cleansing your face removes the build-up of oil, excess sebum, dirt, makeup, and pollutants that otherwise accumulate and cause acne and breakout. Most of the environmental impurities and cosmetic products our skin comes in contact with are not water soluble, so just rinsing the skin with water isn’t enough to remove them. This is why washing your face is so important otherwise this build-up can cause breakouts, large pores, and clogged follicles which wreak havoc on your skin. Cleansing also removes any sweat and dead skin cells present which is basic hygiene. By routinely cleansing, it allows your skin to soak up more hydration and moisture and become healthier over time. With all these benefits, facial cleansers also increase the effectiveness of every other skincare product you use on your skin. Natural face cleanser remove dirt, sebum, oil, and dead skin cells without damaging or irritating the skin.
