From breakout-prone to super-dry, no matter your skin type, the process of washing it should never involve stripping away its protective barrier—stripped skin is of course drier, less dewy and plump, and it’s rougher, duller and less reflective—meaning less glow, smoothness, and clarity. But it’s also more vulnerable to inflammation—a root cause of both acne and aging.
Many conventional cleansers contain powerful detergents (aka surfactants) that—just as they break up oil spills on roadway or grease on a frying pan—strip away the natural, beneficial oils on your skin. Cosmetic companies’ solutions tend to involve adding back in moisturizer once you’ve cleansed, a strategy akin to substituting vitamins for whole foods. Instead, think of moisture like a healthy supplement, not the main event, and think of proper skincare, in large part, as an effort to maintain the natural oils you’ve got on skin. -Goop
