Why it's Important to Cleanse Your Skin Properly 

Daily life exposes our skin to numerous pollutants, from makeup and sweat to environmental particles. Proper cleansing provides several benefits; here’s why you should keep this crucial step in your organic skincare routine:

Clear Skin: Regular cleansing prevents the buildup of oil and dirt, which can clog pores and lead to acne.

Boost Hydration: Cleansing with our gentle Organic Purifying Facial Cleanser helps to maintain your skin's pH balance and hydration levels.

Enhanced Effectiveness of Skincare Products: By removing the layer of grime, your skin can better absorb the beneficial ingredients of other skincare products.

Finding Your Balance: The Cleansing Debate—Once or Twice a Day?

In the ever-evolving conversation about skincare, particularly when it comes to cleansing routines, opinions tend to vary. Some experts advocate for a once-daily cleansing ritual, suggesting that a simple splash of water in the morning is sufficient, reserving the deeper cleansing process for the evening. This school of thought stems from a concern that cleansers might strip the skin of its natural oils.

However, Trish Alkaitis, CEO of Dr Alkaitis Organics, shares a different perspective based on her personal experience. "Having struggled with acne and an overactive oily complexion, it became crucial for me to cleanse away the layer of natural oils and toxins released overnight," says Trish. She stands by the idea that starting the day with a fresh, clean face is beneficial, especially if the cleansing product is designed to support the skin's natural balance.

At Dr Alkaitis Organics we take pride in our Purifying Cleanser. Not only is it exceptionally gentle and non-drying, but its effectiveness is also widely praised.  As Trish points out, "The first eight ingredients of our cleanser are among the most nourishing and restorative plant oils available. Suitable for all skin types, it's rich in vitamins, herbs, and seaweeds and offers exfoliation and brightening effects with regular use." As Trish herself has observed, a product that respects and maintains the skin's homeostasis, like our organic Purifying Cleanser, can be a game-changer for those seeking to manage their skin conditions effectively.
