When it comes to purchasing a facial cleanser, factors like packaging, trendiness and price can often distract us from what truly counts. Instead, focus on what the formula can do for your skin, and if the formula is designed to meet your skin care needs. Not only will using a cleanser that’s better suited for a different skin type not give you the results you need, but it will lead to wasted money—and wasted time!
If you have oily skin, you should try a foaming, or clay based cleanser, that can remove stubborn surface dirt and excess oil. Otherwise, this type of cleanser can be incompatible on dry skin, as it may strip the skin’s surface of any natural oils. If your skin is dry or dehydrated, look for a cleanser formulated with hydrating ingredients such as Hyaluronic acid (hyperlink to HA page), to remove surface grime whilst also hydrating your skin such as the Revitalift Re-Plumping Gel Wash, which is suitable for all skin types.
For those of you with mature skin, you may experience dryness and a lack of youthful, luminous glow. A cream cleanser such as the Age Perfect Cleansing Milk is perfect for tackling any aging concerns. This cleanser is enriched with Magnesium and Vitamin C to clear out built-up dead skin cells and re-energise your skin. The result: fresh, bright skin that is replenished and revitalised.
