Four Cleanser Misconceptions

Exfoliating beads (and washcloths) help remove more dirt & oil.

Using exfoliation such as beads or washcloths (what doctors call “mechanical” exfoliation) can encourage redness and destruction to the skin barrier. Epionce cleansers use botanical ingredients like Willow Bark Extract to effectively remove dirt, oil and makeup without irritating the skin. Epionce cleansers are additionally formulated to help reduce visible redness and calm skin.

Cleansing is not as important as other steps in your regime.

Cleansing is an important step in your regime. This is where impurities are eliminated and you prepare skin to receive the benefits of Lytic products and Renewal Facial products. This is another reason why using a high-quality cleanser is important. Epionce cleansers work with other products to reduce redness, smooth skin texture and help improve the visible appearance of skin.

It’s normal for my skin to feel dry after cleansing.

A good cleanser should clean without stripping the skin of natural oils. The goal with your cleanser is to remove dirt, oil and makeup without causing harm to the skin. All Epionce cleansers were created so skin won’t feel deprived of hydration. Milky Lotion Cleanser is mild and creamy, but effectively cleanses sensitive skin of impurities. Gentle Foaming Cleanser and Lytic Gel Cleanser are formulated with ingredients to help reduce redness and blemishes, without further irritating skin.

Any cleanser will work.

The best cleanser you can use should be appropriate for your skin type. Dry, normal or oily skin have their own unique challenges. Finding a product with the right balance of gentle ingredients that won’t strip skin goes a long way to help improve skin. High street cleansers may be a “one size fits all” solution but may not help balance oil production or safely remove dead skin and debris. A cleanser should complement products in your skin regime, without creating more damage.
