One of the most important steps in a good skincare routine is cleansing. Skincare products absorb better at night when your skin isn't exposed to environmental stressors such as pollution and sun damage, so it's vital that you cleanse before bedtime.

On the contrary, they don't strip your skin of its lipids and are suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive skin.
