How to choose the right cleanser?

Choosing the cleanser might sound boring because it's so basic : any cleanser will do. However if your cleanser is not adopted to your skin type and your skin requirments, it can leave impurities behind and even worse: cause breakouts. The truth is, your cleanser is the foundation to your skincare routine. The wrong product will interfere with skin functioning and disrupt the skin's barrier. And we definitely don't want that. Because when skin's barrier is damaged, all sorts of problem arise. 

Today, we are lucky because there are so many available options like cream cleansers, gel cleansers, cleansing balm and even cleansing oils but it can be overwhelming as well. We want to break it down for you.

For oily skins, choose effective but gentle formula that will remove dirt, oil, makeup, and other impurities without compromising the skin's barrier. A  gel or a milk cleanser without clogging ingredients like shea butter or coconut oil will be a good choice. Also, avoid harsh alcohol based cleansers because they can trigger more oil production. For dry skins, go for milky and creamy formulas with humectants and ingredients that attract water to the surface of the skin. For those with acne-prone skin, a cleansing milk or a cleansing oil is a good choice because they keep the skin’s acid mantle balanced. When choosing a cleansing oil, make sure it has naturally-derived ingredients like Argan Oil.

 

Whether you have oily, dry or acne prone skin, you always need to have a gentle daily cleanser like Gentle Face Cleanser that effectively cleanses the skin without disrupting your skin's barrier. Enhaced with hydrating ingredients and antioxidants, this product is a hero for sensitive skin as well. It washes away impurities and leaves the skin soft and radiant. It contains Centella Asiatica, Green Tea and Chamomile, all of which has skin-soothing benefits to calm any inflammation.
