Choosing a Facial Cleanser

So much focus is given to moisturizers and treatments when thinking of a skin care regimen, but as the first thing you’ll use each morning and night, choosing a facial cleanser is the foundation of a healthy skincare routine.

Whether you’re dealing with dry, combination, oily or sensitive skin, there’s a cleanser out there just for you. Remember, consistency is key! Cleanse twice daily, morning and night, and always follow up with a moisturizer suitable for your skin type.

Choosing a Cleanser Based on Skin Type

What type of cleanser should I use if I have dry skin?

When you have dry skin, opt for a hydrating, creamy cleanser enriched with nourishing ingredients. These gems not only cleanse away impurities but also provide that much-needed moisture boost, leaving your skin feeling soft and supple. Avoid harsh, drying formulas and embrace cleansers that prioritize hydration.

What type of cleanser should I use if I have normal or combination skin?

For those with normal or combination skin, the quest for the perfect cleanser is all about balance. Look for a gentle, pH-balanced cleanser that dances seamlessly between hydrating and cleansing. A foaming cleanser can be a great choice, effectively removing impurities without tipping the scales toward dryness.

What type of cleanser should I use if I have oily skin?

Oily skin needs a cleanser that hits the right notes—powerful enough to tackle excess oil, yet gentle on the skin. Opt for a gel-based or foaming cleanser. If your oily skin is also acne-prone, look for ingredients like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. These superheroes work to unclog pores and keep oil production in check.

What type of cleanser should I use if I have sensitive skin?

Nurturing sensitive skin requires a gentle touch. When choosing a cleanser, opt for fragrance-free, hypoallergenic formulas. Look for ingredients like chamomile, aloe vera, or calendula that soothe and calm sensitive skin. Keep it simple—avoid harsh chemicals and go for mild cleansers.

What type of cleanser should I use if I want to remove makeup?

Opt for a dedicated makeup remover or a gentle cleansing oil. These products work wonders in breaking down even the toughest waterproof makeup without tugging at your skin.

For a double-cleansing routine, follow up with a gentle foaming or cream cleanser to ensure your skin is thoroughly clean.

Micellar water is also a great option for a quick and efficient makeup removal process.
