Face cleansing: you are busy with work, sports or hobbies all day long, so your skin is exposed to various influences. On the one hand, the skin is exposed to external influences such as the use of make-up or invisible fine dust particles in the air that remain on your skin.

The skin itself is also active, sweating due to physical exertion, sebum formation to protect the skin against infections such as bacteria and fungi, flexible and hydrated. An excess of sebum causes your skin to feel shiny and oily. Your skin cells are replaced every 4-6 weeks and dead skin cells accumulate on the epidermis.

All this can affect your skin, your skin looks duller, pores get clogged. And in the long run that can lead to acne and eczema.

Face cleansing overview

Facial cleansing is an important part of good (natural) skin care.

On this page we will discuss things you should know about cleaning your face.

Invisible particles on the skin

Skin contaminants such as air pollution and sweat are invisible particles on the skin. Some studies investigated urban versus rural skin effects. An important factor is that there is much less air pollution and particulate matter in the air in rural areas. It turns out that the invisible air pollution particles in the air contribute to pigment spots on the face. Up to 20% more on forehead and cheeks.

Over-cleansing your skin, how do you notice that?

So it is important to cleanse your face properly to prevent skin hassle and to look fresh.

But did you know that you can cleanse your skin too much? Cleaning your face has many benefits, such as fewer skin problems and fresher skin. But did you know that you can clean your skin too much (by exfoliating too often, peeling or using unsuitable skin cleansers for your skin).

What Are the Signs That You’re Over-Cleaning Your Face? In the beginning, the skin feels tighter, is redder in color and burns more than what you are normally used to. If you do not pay any attention to these first skin symptoms, the skin will become drier and more flaky, which can possibly lead to eczema.

Another indication that your skin is over-cleansing is that your acne is suddenly getting worse. By over cleaning you affect your skin barrier. The close interplay between horny layer, sebum and skin acidity is disrupted by over-cleansing. And in combination with acne bacteria (cutibacterium acne) can cause more pimples.

How often can I wash my face?

Washing your face too little leads to an accumulation of dead skin cells, excess sebum, bacterial overgrowth and other impurities such as particulate matter, which can lead to troubled dull skin. While washing your face too often can lead to other problems. How often should you wash your face? A survey shows that 33% of men do not wash their face every day. A clinical study shows that significantly less acne was observed in men if they washed their face twice a day with a mild facial cleanser.

So washing your face twice a day is good. That is in the morning when you get up and in the evening just before going to sleep.

Are there any differences between facial cleansers for men and women?

Yes, there are biological differences between a man’s skin and a woman’s skin. In general, a man’s skin is much oilier, collagen in the skin is thicker and men have larger pores.

Differences between facial cleansers for men and women is that the cleansers for women have a much softer color packaging, the scent is more fruity and floral, and less spicy than products for men. However, there is no difference in effect on the skin. They are the same for both men and women.

What is important for cleaning your skin is your skin type. Do you have normal, dry or oily skin. With a facial cleanser, the (active) ingredients are important, or vice versa, that no harmful ingredients have been processed in the product and whether the product restores your skin acidity, also known as pH value.
