Since our teen years, we’ve always been reminded about the importance of cleaning the skin to prevent breakouts and pimples caused by congestion and inflammation. Cleansing is undoubtedly an important first step of skin care for all skin types, but for people with oily skin, it is absolutely critical. Keeping the skin clean and controlling excess oil remains a key step to healthier and fresher looking skin. ZO Skin Health is a committed partner in this quest and ensures that many of its cleansing products offer hydrating and soothing ingredients for all skin types.
Benefits of Cleansing
The benefits of cleansing are numerous and, besides the removal of accumulated impurities, include oxygenating the skin, unclogging pores which reduces their size, activating blood circulation in the area and slowing the ageing process down by producing a smoother and more radiant looking skin. ZO Skin Health’s gentle cleanser is a popular choice as its foaming action gently cleanses the skin, removing make-up and impurities that can cause congestion.
The importance of exfoliation
One of the key elements to managing oily skin is exfoliation. By regularly and gently exfoliating the skin, you are able to remove dull, dry skin cells that trap bacteria on the skin, thereby reducing excess oil and neutralising free radicals. The removal of dead skin layers enables clean, clear and radiant skin to be revealed underneath. The Exfoliating Cleanser performs all of these functions, going another step further by including encapsulated Vitamin E. This vitamin is the most important antioxidant for healthy skin. The Exfoliating Cleanser is for normal to oily skin and successfully targets surface oil, leaving the skin feeling clean and fresh, without being dry.
Getting Skin Ready
ZO Skin Health promotes healthier, clearer skin through a three-step approach called the ZO Getting Skin Ready (GSR) system. This basic skin health system includes three products namely a cleanser, scrub and oil control pads. The cleanser removes impurities on the skin, to refresh and revive the skin, while the scrub moves in on unwanted build up and activates skin cells. Finally, the pads help to control oil and thus actively fight ageing and breakouts. This comprehensive approach optimises the effectiveness of subsequent skin treatment programme.
Refining of Pores
Another extremely helpful product in the quest for healthier skin is the Instant Pore Refiner which smoothes the skin texture, tightens pores and reduces surface oil for a more even, refined and matt finish. This assists with keeping pores clean, which, in turn, limits blemishes.
ZO Skin Health’s persistent commitment to health and radiant skin manifests itself in its cleansing and exfoliation products, and even more so in the effectiveness thereof. Knowing that we are getting our skin ready with ZO Skin products, is a major step in our journey towards sustainable skin health.
