Even if you don’t wear makeup, it’s very important to wash your face with a cleanser. It’s not just makeup you want to wash off. Facial cleansers remove makeup, pollutants, bacteria and unwanted debris off of our face.
In addition, it’s important to recognise that properly cleansing the skin prepares your skin to absorb products you may put on after, like a serum or moisturiser, according to BeautyStat. Clearing out your pores allows the moisturizer to penetrate into your skin for maximum effectiveness. What’s the point of applying moisturisers and treatments if your skin isn’t’ able to absorb them fully?
For dry skin, select a product with no/few chemicals, perfumes, and dyes.
For oily skin, go for a good cleanser that will remove the oil without stripping the skin which can stimulate even more oil production.
For combination and normal skin, select a cleanser depending on the weather and your current skin needs.
When choosing a cleanser, always use a gentle cleanser, since harsh soaps can trigger the skin to increase oil production. Even though it may be tempting to get that squeaky clean feel, it may strip your skin of the good oils — making your skin react by producing even more oil!
A regular facial cleanser can’t properly break down and remove waterproof makeup, so be sure to use a separate makeup remover if you use waterproof makeup
And if you want to perform a ‘rinse cycle’, use a toner to remove any debris or makeup that a cleanser may have left behind! You’ll be surprised to see what a little toner and a cotton pad will remove even AFTER you’ve cleansed your face, especially if you wear makeup
