What is situational cleansing and why is it so hot right now?
Situational cleansing is all the rage right now. Seems ironic and a slight marketing spin because OF COURSE you'd cleanse your skin using whatever method or product is best for your skin at that moment. *It's always been* about situational cleansing. But if the new marketing fad brings awareness— amazing.
Tips for Situational Cleansing
Situation cleansing= Cleanse your skin based on the situation.
If it's hot and you're sweating and oily, use a cleanser that strips the oil and leaves you feeling squeaky clean. I always recommend washing twice at night (a.k.a. the double-cleanse). The first time washes all the oil and makeup off. The second time washes your skin.
If it's cold and you're feeling dehydrated, use a gentle cleanser that doesn't strip your natural oils but still leaves you feeling clean so your serums and moisturizers can penetrate well.
The Best Facial Cleansers for Situational Cleansing
For a more personalized approach, we can recommend one of a number of different
cleansers made from a local chemist, in small batches, here in Southern California based on your specific needs. This is the best approach since there are so many variables in determining what your 'situation' is for your skin.
Ultimately, our genetics, climate changes, diet/exercise, how often you cleanse your skin, hormones...all play a factor and it's never a one-size-fits-all.
