I’m back with the second part of creating a skincare routine! Today I’m going to share with you how to pick the best cleanser for you, if you haven’t yet read the first post I’ll leave a link here!
Why you need to cleanse
The purpose of cleansing is to remove bacteria, makeup, dirt, sweat and oil that builds up during the day. Every skin type needs to cleanse at least once a day, with a cleansing formula that doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils.
Which cleanser for which skin type?
On the bottles of cleansers, they usually specify what skin type is best suited for them, it’s very important that you select the correct one, else your skin won’t benefit.
- Normal skin – foaming cleanser.
- Dry skin – rich cleanser.
- Oily skin – cleanse twice a day.
- Combination skin – regular cleansing.
I have tried many different cleansers, but time and time again I return to the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, I have a full review here. I suggest that you go to different skincare shops, or stands and ask for professional advice, and they’ll run a few short tests on your skin to determine what product is best for you. I’ve been into Kiehls a few times and they really helped me.
I wanted to keep this post quite short, because everyone’s skin is different and the best way to find a good cleanser is ask people who work for skincare companies. Let me know in the comments what cleanser you usually use, in the comments!
