The Ultimate Skin Cleanse

Posted on November 21, 2016

Skin cleansing is the most pivotal step of anyone’s beauty routine as it sets the base for your skin’s condition and the products that you’ll need and wear on a daily basis. In today’s society with the hustle and bustle of people, transport and everything else in between, it is important that we also cleanse and protect our skin from the pollution in our surrounding environment. We break it down by explaining the different types of skin cleansers, and which one is the most appropriate for your skin type.

Creamy cleansers:

If you have combination to dry skin, or are looking for a cleanser suitable for sensitive skin then creamy cleansers are the perfect solution for you. They are the least harsh of all the other cleansers as they don’t contain exfoliating particles.

Oil cleansers:

If you have oily skin, salicylic acid is one of the best ingredients in cleansers for getting oil out of pores. Using a salicylic acid face wash also eliminates blemishes as it is the only ingredient that reaches inside the pores of your skin. Regular cleansing wipes helps remove dirt and makeup that prevents build up in your skin. For a stronger wipe, look for products that contain exfoliating acids such as salicylic acid. To avoid irritation, use them no more than once a week.

Serum cleanser

Serum based cleansers:

Serums and creams with antioxidants mitigate the effects of anti-ageing and improve the skin’s texture and tone. Pollutants can penetrate skin, and dry skin is most vulnerable because its barrier is compromised, so by using a powerful moisturiser with glyercin will help reduce these. These are most suitable for dry and ageing skin types. Look for serums with hyaluronic acid since it's a super hydrating ingredient. 

Exfoliating cleansers:

Exfoliating cleansers can improve the results of your skin and helps rejuvenate the skin. Exfoliating cleansers helps remove dead skin cells more efficiently by keeping the pores clean. It also stimulates the regeneration of the skin cells and their renewal, making your skin look and feel smooth and clear. If you have oily and combination skin then it is vital to use an exfoliator to remove the build up of dead skin cells. Look for ingredients that contain salicylic acid
