My soap visibly washes off all the dirt from my face. Why do I then need a cleanser?
Yes, it’s true that soaps do clean your face. However, the correction to this is that they don’t wash off all the dirt visibly; rather they wash off ONLY the visible dirt. They cannot penetrate into the deeper layers of your skin and cleanse it thoroughly; nor can they unclog the pores, that are responsible for a number of skin issues; such as blackheads, acne and other infections. In fact, to clear off the visible dirt, they have to be strong (or harsh) enough; and so end up stealing the natural moisture of the skin. This again is responsible for another number of skin issues like wrinkling, flaking, itching etc.
A gentle cleansing cream, on the other hand, preserves your skin’s natural moisture; while providing a pore-deep cleansing to your skin.
