Obagi – Cleanser Chronicles
We can all agree that we have all occasionally skipped our cleansing routine and picked up the make up wipe instead. Even though it’s the faster option it more than likely will lead to our skin being dry, dull and prone to break outs. It is important to add cleansing to your day as it can help to provide you with fresh clean skin.
Why is Cleansing Important?
Cleansing is a vital part of everyone’s skin care routine as it is the best way to remove any dirt that has built up on the skin and in the pours throughout the day. It is usually the first step in a skincare routine and is great for unclogging pours and creating a blank canvas for the next products to get in and do their job in leaving the skin clean, hydrated and replenished at the end of the day. It is important to cleanse and tone in the morning and night every day to keep the skin glowing.
The following are some of the Obagi cleansers which are the some of the best products on the market and aimed for all different skin types. Here are some explanations to provide you with insight into which is the right cleanser for you!
