Why create foam with your facial cleanser?
Foam acts as cushion that guards your skin from abrasion, harsh rubbing and drying out. If you find yourself tugging at your skin to remove stubborn make-up, you could be doing a long-term disservice to your skin. Friction from hand-to-face contact can result in scratches and pulling at the skin. Plus, foam cleansing means less efforting in your daily routine. The beauty is that the foam does all the work. The foam micro-bubbles seep into pores to draw out dirt and impurities, so all you need to do is gently rinse off.
Who should use a foaming cleanser?
While all skin types can benefit from foam cleansing, oily, combination and normal skin types will likely reap the best results. For these skin types, foaming cleansers are likely to leave the skin feeling clean and refreshed, without being stripped of its natural oils. Dry skin types can also benefit from foam cleansing, but they should be careful not to overdo it - they should monitor how their skin responds and foam cleanse as often as necessary, depending on their lifestyle and the current season. Especially in humid climates, even the driest of skin types can benefit from a good foam detox.
How do foaming nets work?
Japanese foaming nets are a great asset for a better cleanse, and they also help stretch the life of your cleanser so that you make the most of your product. When you rely on your bare hands to create a lather, it can result in oversized foam bubbles that can’t penetrate your pores. Foaming nets create a rich foam made of micro-bubbles that can easily draw out impurities and dirt. Yes, there is a method to the madness, and these J-Beauty foaming nets are a big piece of the puzzle!
How do you use a foaming net?
Foaming nets aren’t rocket science! For proper use, just follow the steps below.
- Wash your hands thoroughly and wet your face with lukewarm water.
- Put a pea sized amount of foaming cleanser on a wet foaming net.
- Hold both sides of the net and rub it in a circular motion. Add a bit of water to create more foam.
- Once your foam is fluffy and dense, extract the foam from the net. Hold the net with one hand, while flattening the net with your other hand.
- Gently press the foam on your face without making direct contact with your skin. There’s no need to rub or massage the foam on your skin. The micro-bubbles will do all the heavy lifting!
- Rinse the foam off your face.
- Rinse and hang-dry the net.
