Most people utilize a facial cleanser twice daily. Cleansing your skin well in the morning and evening is the foundation for any good skin care regimen. When choosing a cleanser, it is important that you are aware of your skin’s particular needs.
Moisturizing cleansers aid those with dry skin while cleansers made for sensitive skin are useful for those who are prone to redness and irritation from many products. Some cleansers have added active ingredients to target specific skin conditions such as benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid for acne prone skin or alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) which encourages exfoliation.
A good product should be able to cleanse your face thoroughly, without the need to “scrub” your face. If your cleanser of choice does not remove your make-up, you should use a product specifically designed for this purpose first. The appropriate cleanser should leave you with a “clean” feeling when you are done, however a “tight” feeling after cleansing indicates your skin has been stripped of vital lipids. A good quality facial cleanser should be non-irritating and non-damaging to the skin.
