There are so many versions of cleansers on the market today and it can be overwhelming when deciding about which product to purchase. I want to talk about what cleansing your skin is all about and to show you how to choose the right cleanser for your skins needs. Choosing the right cleanser is the first step in having the skin you dream of having.
Cleansing our skin is the first step in our skin care routine but is also one of the most essential steps. By cleansing our skin, we are removing dirt and debris from our skin, smoothing the skin, removing dead skin cells, and cleaning our pores. This step is the also amazing for preparing the skin for any additional steps in your skin care routine as the skin is now more capable for absorbing and receiving the benefits from our serums and moisturisers.
When purchasing a cleanser, it is important to ask is this the right cleanser for my skin? Each cleanser is designed to work for a certain skin type or skin concern. For example an Oil Based Cleanser is considered better for a dry skin type as dry skin is lacking in oil, while a water-based gel cleanser is considered better for an oily skin. A client with an oily skin can use a milk cleanser but it may not give them the freshly cleansed feeling they are looking for, but it won’t damage their skin. A client with dry sensitive skin who is using a gel cleanser for acne skin may feel negative effects as this cleanser is designed to remove excess oil, purify and mattified the skin. This client’s skin was already lacking in oil so their skin may feel even dryer and can lead to an increase in the sensitivity of their skin.
