What is Dry Cleansing?
Proper facial cleansing is one of the most important steps in any skin care routine. This makes it all the more important to understand what the right cleansing routine is for you.
Dry cleansing is the first cleansing step in which an oil-based cleanser is applied to dry skin.
Why oil based?
Why an oil-based facial cleanser? Oils, like natural plant based oils, are capable of dissolving all types of makeup and can also help remove stubborn dirt or sunscreen. The oils work differently, more thoroughly than the surfactants found in traditional facial cleansers.
Why dry skin?
First of all, because the cleansing product is not diluted and the active ingredients are applied directly to the skin.
In general, this is also the advantage of solid cleaning products. They are not diluted with water and the concentration of active ingredients is much higher. Furthermore, this type of cleaning ensures that makeup and oil-based dirt residues are removed down to the pores.
