In the series5 Reasons:Why clean his face?
Reason #3: Eliminate dead skin and germs
Did you know that the "cell cycle" of the epidermis varies between 26 and 42 days? Did you know that the longer you age, the longer the cycle? In other words, it means that it takes about 1 months for the skin cells to regenerate and eliminate. When all is well, it's wonderful, since you have nothing to do and you do not realize anything. On the other hand, it happens that the process is a little disturbed and that dead skin remains in area of the skin. This gives you an impression of dry skin, or crocodile skin. Thoroughly cleansing your skin helps to eliminate them and keep skin softer and healthier.
The germs, let's talk about it! Every day you touch door handles, cash, stair railings, grocery items, and so on. And every day, hundreds of people touched them before you. Later in the day, you put your hands to your face ... result: the germs harvested on your hands are now housed there! You see me coming ... cleaning his face makes it possible to eliminate a good part, as well as to wash his hands. Think about it! ;)
