Is it enough to just wash my face?

Over the course of the day, the skin on your face is the most exposed to the elements. All kinds of aging irritants like pollution and dirt get trapped in the pores where oil mixes in with the grime and can clog the pores.

The best face cleansers like the SELF/ish Facial Cleanser are formulated with beneficial alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and beta hydroxy acid (BHA) to clear out pores and wipe the slate clean each day.

But cleansing isn’t enough.

Skin needs much more than a clean slate to be healthy. Healthy skin appears younger and can defend against signs of aging longer. Like the rest of the body, our skin is in need of vital nutrients in the form of vitamins, hydration, lipids (fats) and moisture. Much of what skin needs each day is obtained through the foods we consume – like fruits, vegetables and protein. Hey, skin needs lots of water, too!

After washing your face in the AM and PM, apply a moisturizer to replenish what skin has lost – and what it needs to be healthy. The best face creams infuse the skin with antioxidants, moisture and water-binding humectants that help the skin maintain healthy functions and defend against dryness and other aging aggressors.

The SELF/ish Oil-Free Moisturizer is packed with vital nutrients like antioxidant vitamins and humectants that help keep skin healthy. Applied twice a day, it will give the skin the ammo it needs to retain moisture and defend itself against aging environmental attacks.
