How to Cleanse Your Skin from Head to Toe How to Cleanse Your Skin from Head to Toe How to Cleanse Your Skin from Head to Toe

It’s time to come clean—when it comes to your skin, that is. Cleansing should play an important role in your daily skin care routine, which is why we’re sharing tips for how to do it from head to toe. Consider this your ultimate guide to cleansing every part of your body! We’ve got you covered with cleansing tips starting at your scalp and ending at your feet.

How to Cleanse Your Scalp

Chances are that when you think about washing your hair, your focus is mainly on your mid-lengths and ends. But caring for your scalp should be part of your cleansing routine, too. The L’Oréal Paris EverFresh Micro-Exfoliating Scrub helps gently remove impurities and buildup from dirt and oils that can weigh hair down. To use, wet hair and gently massage into your scalp and throughout the rest of your hair. Rinse thoroughly and follow up with the L’Oréal Paris EverFresh Antidandruff Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverFresh Balancing Conditioner.

How to Cleanse Your Face

There’s not one right way to cleanse your complexion—in fact, there are quite a few different types of facial cleansers out there. Here are a few popular options to consider. Don’t forget to apply a moisturizer afterwards! (Here’s how to find the best moisturizer for your skin type.)

Gel cleanser: The L’Oréal Paris Ideal Clean™ All Skin Types Foaming Gel Cleanser helps remove dirt, oil, and makeup without over-drying skin. Wet your face and hands with lukewarm water, work a small amount of gel into a foamy lather and massage it onto your face with a gentle, circular motion, then rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry with a soft towel.

Cream cleanser: The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Nourishing Cream Cleanser is formulated with replenishing oils and helps gently yet effectively remove traces of makeup. Every morning and evening, lather the cleanser into wet hands, gently massaging it onto skin, then rinse thoroughly and pat dry.

Micellar water: This no-rinse cleansing option is powered by tiny micelles—oil molecules—that act as a magnet to lift dirt, oil, and makeup up and away from the skin. The L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin purifies and mattifies, the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin hydrates and soothes, and the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types intensely purifies. Just saturate a cotton pad with your micellar water of choice and wipe the pad across your face.

Towelettes: The L’Oréal Paris Ideal Clean™ All Skin Types Makeup Removing Towelettes gently yet effectively remove all traces of makeup—even waterproof mascara and long-wear makeup—without drying out the skin. Wipe across your face and eye area to use—no need to rinse afterwards.

How to Cleanse Your Lips

It’s time to show your lips some much-deserved love! Help care for your pout by exfoliating it with a lip scrub. Apply the scrub in gentle circular motions, then rinse off with water and follow up with a hydrating lip conditioner. (Learn how to care for dry lips during the summer here.)

How to Cleanse Your Body

First things first: When showering, do so in lukewarm water, as super-hot H20 can strip your skin of essential oils. While this may not feel quite as relaxing, trust us—your skin will thank you! OK, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s move on to talking about how, exactly, to cleanse your body. Stock your shower with a gentle body wash and apply it in gentle circular motions with your hands or a loofah from your neck all the way down to your feet. Just as you applied moisturizer to your face after cleansing, apply a body lotion once you’ve stepped out of the shower.
