Is It Possible to Over-Cleanse Skin?

Is It Possible to Over-Cleanse Skin? - MOX Skincare

Yes! We often over-cleanse our skin. The harshest thing we do to our skin on a regular basis is wash it. So, when should you cleanse? Wash your face when it's dirty, period. For most people, that's once at the end of the day, but this can vary depending on skin type. Our skin has good bacteria and the more you wash your face the more you kill that good bacteria. Additionally, your skin’s PH is easily disrupted by cleansing. Dirt lives in the skin's oils that help keep your skin hydrated. When you wash the dirt off, you wash the skin oils as well! p.s. keep in mind that you may need to wash your face more often if you’re a fan of makeup or deal with acne.


So ditch the double cleansing trend! Double cleansing is completely unnecessary. Cleansing is the harshest part of the skincare routine, so why do it twice? At Mox, we pride ourselves on the fact that we don’t sell unnecessary and redundant products to our customers. The Mox Invigorating Peppermint Cleanser works wonders all by itself, with a formula that is mild, softening, and refreshing!
