We are often asked at janegee if we could choose a single product, which product would we choose? Well, that is easier said than done, but if we had to pick a single step of our skincare routine to focus on, we would choose cleansing every single time. Washing your face with the right cleanser is the single most crucial step toward keeping your skin healthy and glowing. You may be wondering why that is? Keep reading to learn more about the reasons we love cleansing so much and more about what sets the janegee treatment cleansers apart from your everyday face wash.
Let’s dive into why you should NEVER skip cleaning your skin!
Removes Build Up - Let’s start with the basics. Washing your face removes dirt, oil, and any other unwanted debris while also balancing the pH and keeping your acid mantle intact. Every day, our skin becomes covered with old dead skin cells, pollutants, bacteria, and viruses throughout the day. We know… gross! But this is why we cannot stress enough how important it is for you to wash your face daily. When you skip washing your face, your skin stays covered in that dirt and grime and can often become unbalanced, not allowing it to function properly. This makes it extremely difficult for any other products to properly treat the skin. However, washing your face daily will remove the debris and leave your skin fresh and clean.
Boosts Hydration - Regularly washing, cleansing, and moisturizing your skin is key to maintaining proper levels of hydration in the skin. Dehydrated skin often looks and feels rough, wrinkled, and aged. Not to worry though, as cleansing helps balance the pH levels of the skin which enables sufficient water and product retention.
Helps Maintain Clear Skin - Sebum, or oil on the skin, is produced by tiny glands under the skin. Sebum protects your skin from the environment. These tiny glands use hair follicles within the skin as a pathway to the skin’s surface. This creates a barrier we call the acid mantle of the skin. The acid mantle prevents penetration of bacteria and any other harmful agents that may cause irritation/damage to your skin. When using a janegee treatment cleanser, you can be confident that the acid mantle is staying intact and at its healthiest. Our treatment cleansers are specifically designed to balance the pH of the skin, allowing your skin to perform at its optimal level. Excessive dirt build up on the surface can cause blockages of the follicle, trapping sebum, sweat, and dead skin cells. The lack of sebum on the skin’s surface allows bacteria to penetrate the follicle causing inflammation. The final result is acne. Daily skin cleansing clears pores of debris to prevent dirt buildup which will allow the sebum oil to reach the skin surface unimpeded and decrease the chances of a breakout!
About our Treatment Cleansers
Now you’re probably wondering which janegee treatment cleanser is right for you. Here at janegee, we have two types of cleansers: oil cleansers and milk cleansers. Our oil cleansers are wonderful for younger, often oily skins and/or skin with acne/congestion, while our milk cleansers are fabulous for more mature, normal or dry skins.
Clear Skin - A gentle and effective cleanser, treatment, and moisturizer all in one. Ideal for acne/congested skin.
Cleanser No.3 - A lightweight oil cleanser designed to balance oil production and easily clean away excess oil, dirt, and debris. Great for sensitive skin and skin with Rosacea.
You might be asking why an oil cleanser is good on oily skins. Seems counterproductive right? False. An oil cleanser actually allows your skin to even out its oil production. If you are constantly stripping the skin of its natural oils, it moves into hyperdrive overproducing oils.
Mild Cleanser No.1 - Our signature milk cleanser. Designed for normal to dry skin that has no congestion. It is filled with rich antioxidants like fresh green papaya and rooibos tea extracts to clean up the free radicals that cause wrinkles; these help hydrate the skin and help reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Deep Cleanser No.2 - A lightweight cleanser that is great for normal and dry skin. Ideal for mature skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines. It is rich with antioxidants to support aging skin.
