What is skin cleansing?
According to Dr. Gabriela Horn, skin cleaning is a procedure performed in the office by qualified professionals, usually a beautician or a dermatofunctional physiotherapist. It is a deeper cleaning than we do at home, removing all impurities and oils that the soap was unable to clean.
However, contrary to what many think, skin cleaning is contraindicated to remove pimples, as it can leave scars, in addition to inflaming and aggravating acne.
Skin Cleansing Benefits
All skin types benefit from cleansing, but especially those who have acne or oily skin. Check out more benefits:
- Deep cleaning: for cleaning deeply, the procedure serves to detoxify, remove dead cells and reduce oiliness.
- Elimination of comedones: dermatologist Gabriela explains that skin cleaning is very efficient for removing comedones, which are popularly called open (black dots) or closed (white dots) blackheads.
- Improved texture: facial cleansing helps maintain skin health and improve its overall appearance, in addition to improving texture for oily and acne-prone skin.
- Milium removal: milium is often mistaken for acne, but it consists of a tiny cyst formed by keratin. Cleansing the skin helps to remove these pellets.
It is interesting to clean the skin two to three times a year. However, more oily skins, as they have a greater tendency to form comedones, require a higher frequency.
