sodium lauryl sulfate

This is one of the most commonly used ingredients in facial cleansers and it actually does a lot of damage!

🙅🏼‍♀️ This ingredient provides the foaming effect in your detergent. The truth is that it is responsible for stripping the skin of its natural oils and moisture. This can cause your skin to go into dehydration mode and you may experience a "tight" feeling after cleansing. This is a clear sign that the detergent is removing too much moisture! That leads to:

💥 Irritated and itchy skin
💥 Acne
💥 Overly sensitive skin

Do yourself a favour...check your cleaning product and if that ingredient is listed, stop using it. Opt for a PH-balanced cleanser like Ormedic Balancing Facial Cleanser or @imageskincare's Max Stem Cell Facial Cleanser, which removes dirt and debris from the day without disrupting the moisture barrier.
