Tips for choosing facial cleanser? You’re in luck!

You need tips for choosing the right facial cleanser to help you shop for the best one for your skin type. The cleanser is an essential beauty item! You should always have at least one that is suitable for your skin type.

The cleanser is the product that essentially cleans your skin and prepares it to receive other products. You get the best out of your skin when it’s thoroughly clean, with no room for dirt/grimes/dead skin cells. All of this means that when your skin is well cleansed, it is more likely to be soft/supple/clearer/healthier, and so on.

So now that we’ve established why you need a good cleanser, you should know what to look out for when choosing one. 

When shopping for skincare/beauty products, pay close attention to the ingredients, i.e. the chemical components, and how they perform on your skin type.

It should be noted, however, that expensive does not always imply good when it comes to cleansers, as many drugstore cleansers work just as well as, if not better than, the more expensive ones.

Shopping for a good cleanser only requires knowledge of what works best on the skin without causing side effects. It is important to note that a good cleanser will not:

  1. Irritate the skin if this happens, discontinue use immediately as this can end up making the skin worse than it already is.
  2. A good cleanser should not excessively dry out the skin even when it’s used on oily skin. It ensures the skin’s PH is balanced.
  3. Won’t strip the skin of oil. If it does it becomes counterproductive as the skin would try to make up for this by producing even more oil which is worse.
  4. Won’t be harsh. A good cleanser should be gentle enough to be used daily, once a week, and it won’t have adverse reactions on the skin.
  5. It won’t sting unbearably. A good cleanser will not sting so much it becomes unbearable. True some come with a slight tingle but that shouldn’t be one that will leave skin red and with serious burns. If this happens, discontinue use immediately and get expert help.
