Why I start my Morning Skincare Ritual with Powder Cleansers?

My morning beauty ritual is such that it helps me to jumpstart my day full of zeal. And, I pick up the products accordingly. Yet, the face washes I had used before did leave my sensitive skin irritated or dry. Not a good start of a day, isn't it? At this time, I came across a new way of cleansing that not only cleanses well, but also takes good care of my skin keeping it soft, healthy and hydrated. Yes, I started using Powder Cleansers.

What I don't like about most of the face washes, is that they strip the skin of its own beneficial oils. Some may refer to it by saying 'tight feeling'. This could lead to dryness and consequent irritations, rashes and redness. As we already double cleanse during our PM skincare, so what's the use of such an intense amount of cleansing in the morning. You need something gentle only to remove the grime or any residue that built up overnight. 


Here come the powdered ones that can give you a thoroughly clean, hydrated and fresh feel. This is quite a different approach to the morning ritual to aid in the fresh start with a healthy, luminous skin. Sometimes I use it as my second cleanse in the PM ritual. Scroll down to know more.


What are Powder Cleansers?

The powder washes are the new addition to the first step in our CTM routine. As the name suggests that they come in powdered form.. a typical finely milled powder containing Oats, Rice barn, Clay, Dried flowers or some Essential Oils. While combined with any liquid (water/floral water), these grains form a smooth paste to keep skin soft, healthy and moisturizesd. Powder washes are suitable for all skin types and can be used daily.


Benefits of Powder Cleansers:


Do you know these granular concoctions can be activated by the liquid according to your skin type or necessity? As they come in dry form, the active ingredients stay undiluted, potent and can last longer without any added preservatives. Sounds cool? I can add one more alluring feature. It's travel-friendly. You can use it even on a running train. Hahaha, tried-and-tested bro! They also remain very convenient where the quantity of liquids are restricted as in the flights.


Another cool feature is that they're customisable to suit your skin type. Are you on the sensitive side? Need a gentler one? Simply add more liquid to form a smoother texture. Yes, you are allowed to customize depending on how much water you are adding. Less water makes it stronger one while more liquid will keep it gentler. As mine is sensitive skin, I always add plenty of water to create a gentle and smooth paste.


The slightly grainy texture can be used as an exfoliant. They can be very gentle and are fantastic replacements for the facial scrubs. So, there's no need for an extra step in your skincare ritual. What you need to do is just add less water to create a thicker paste for that deep exfoliation. This can do magic especially for the oily skin. 


Would like to try Powder Cleansers? Here are some of my favorite products.


Skincarevilla Oats Almond Cleanser:


My all-time favorite and the first cleansing powder I've ever used. This is I think the best formulation of Skincarevilla Shop. This brand is known for its affordable and reliable products. From the name "Oats Almond Cleanser", you might be thinking that it's suitable only for dry skin. Dude, if you trust me, use this on your oily skin and tell me. And, their new finely milled form is now available.
