    Facial cleansing

    Cleansing the face is the be-all and end-all of facial care - and should be at the beginning as well as at the end of the day. Different cleaning products can be used - depending on skin type and personal taste. In addition to daily cleansing with cleansing milk, facial tonic, etc., a facial peel can also be used every few days. Then nothing stands in the way of a radiant and clear complexion. We reveal why the subject of facial cleansing is popular every day, which steps need to be taken into account when it comes to skin care - and which products are used for the individual skin types. We also specifically address facial peeling and micellar water.

    Facial cleansing is an integral part of every beauty routine: Every morning and evening you should remove make-up and dirt from your face in order to achieve a fresh and even complexion. In our online shop, you are sure to find the right products for your skin type with sophisticated active ingredient compositions that contain organic aloe vera, jojoba or gingko, for example.

    Why is facial cleansing an important step in facial care?

    Cleansing and removing make-up form the basis of daily care - the subsequent day and night cream can only work or the make-up can be applied correctly if the face is clean. It is not enough to remove the residue with warm water. This will wash away the water-soluble residues, but grease, dead skin or make-up will remain stubborn - for the latter you should also use a make-up remover or even an eye make-up remover. These are removed with a facial tissue, toner, etc.

    When should i clean my face?

    Mornings & evenings! The morning facial cleansing removes the remains of the night: fat, excess sebum and sweat. In the evening, make-up residues, salt, bacteria and the "dirt" of the day in the cotton pad or microfiber make-up removal cloth disappear instead of clogging the skin.

    How does the face cleanse work?

    These four items will play the main part at your daily cleansing routine:

    The cleaning product of your choice

    A towel just for your face

    Facial toner

    Cotton pads

    For most products, lukewarm water is recommended as a basis for cleaning. In the evening, the make-up is also removed. Apply the cleansing product to the skin in circular movements and then rinse it off (if necessary). Gently dry your skin with a towel that you will only use on your face. You can then clarify your skin with a facial toner. Please note that you only clean your face twice a day - otherwise the skin will be stressed and dried out. After cleaning, a day cream or night cream is recommended. This supplies your face with the appropriate active ingredients and moisture.

    Which facial cleansing suits me?

    As a matter of fact, asking a counter-question is rude. But in order to use the right make-up removal wipes or the right facial toner for daily facial cleansing, we would like to hear from you: Which type would you assign your skin to? Do you have dry skin, blemished skin or sensitive skin? Because there is a suitable facial cleanser for every skin type.

    Normal skin: Your skin can handle all cleansing products. Whether wash gel, wash foam the choice is yours.

    Dry skin: So that your skin does not become tense after cleansing, you should use make-up removing tissues, a tonic or the like, which provide your skin with moisture again after cleansing. You should also make sure that alcohol is not on the list of ingredients. Microfiber facial tissues, for example, are particularly gentle when it comes to removing make-up. Paired with a moisturizing cleansing lotion or mild cleansing milk, we say goodbye! make-up residue and impurities. Tip: A cleaning oil is recommended for waterproof make-up. This gently removes mascara and eye shadow from the skin - and cares without leaving an oily film.

    Oily skin / impure skin: You can degrease your skin when you clean it. A cleaning gel or a cleaning lotion with alcohol is recommended. These also clarify and disinfect at the same time. It also tackles pimples or blemishes.

    Sensitive skin: This skin type is often reluctant to use perfumes or dyes. Therefore, a care product that does without these ingredients is exactly the right thing for you. At dm you will also find these products in the "Medical Care" (VL) section.


    A facial peeling is responsible for deep cleansing. It clears pores, removes dead skin cells and disinfects. You should use a peeling a maximum of once a week. If you have blemished skin or are prone to pimples, you can also exfoliate twice a week and thereby cleanse down to the pores. Many also wonder if they can use a DIY scrub to clean their face. Healing earth, coffee or sugar, for example, can be used as a basis. These are responsible for removing the dead skin cells and should be supplemented with a nourishing ingredient (such as honey) so that a rounded, self-made peeling is created.

    Micellar water

    So-called micellar water is quite new and in great demand when it comes to facial toner.

    How does the micellar water work?

    Micelles are formed when microscopic surfactant molecules combine. Micellar products cleanse particularly gently - even sensitive skin. Micelles have a hydrophilic core and a lipophilic shell. That means that they remove both water-soluble and fat-soluble debris from the skin. The micelles in micellar water or make-up removal cloths enclose residues such as make-up, excess sebum and dirt on the skin and attract them like a magnet. Practical: You do not need to rub or use additional water for cleaning. This makes them particularly recommended for the sensitive eye area: They remove mascara residues, for example, from the eyelashes without rubbing too much.

    For which skin are micellar products particularly suitable?

    For all skin types, even for sensitive skin: The products do not require water or soap and are particularly gentle on the skin. Rubbing becomes superfluous with micellar products. Important: Choose a micellar water that suits your skin type. This ensures that your facial care also meets the needs of the skin.
