Have you ever washed your face and noticed a rough, uneven quality to your skin? When dead skin cells are present on the skin surface, your face will lack the smooth, glowing appearance we associate with healthy skin. To achieve this desired look, the skin must first be thoroughly cleansed and the skin cells must be exfoliated.
The Theraderm Cleansing Wash is carefully formulated to gently remove any residue from makeup, dirt, excess skin oils or dead skin cells from the skin. Its two-fold action works to release and separate particles from the skin while penetrating the remaining particles in the dead skin’s cell walls.
Oil and debris are attracted and adhere to the skin in a way similar to that of saran wrap sticking to a surface. Theraderm Cleansing Wash is able to separate the bonds, which act like magnets, between the skin’s surface and oil molecules. Regular soaps and plain water are not able to penetrate the oily barrier of the skin surface and are therefore unable to remove any substances below the barrier. Theraderm Cleansing Wash has a surfactant quality, which reduces the tensions between these bonds.
While Cleansing Wash is effective in removing these impurities from the skin surface, roughness from dead skin cells that have yet to separate from the skin can still remain. These skin cells create nooks and crannies where dirt and other particles can easily hide from being washed away. In order to remove these particles and remaining dead skin cells, use a course weave washcloth in gentle, circular motions while washing your face.
After looking at eight to ten different washcloths and comparing the roughness of the fibers, Theraderm chose a washcloth with the perfect balance of rough and gentle fibers that are mechanically effective, yet don’t damage the skin. Velour washcloths are not rough enough to remove retained cells. It is important to use the right kind of washcloth. By using these carefully selected washcloths as part of your daily skin care routine, you can experience healthier, more vibrant skin than you would by just washing your face.
