Everyone knows that it is critical to wash and cleanse their face twice daily to have healthy skin. That’s the easy part. The hard part is knowing what kind of cleanser to choose and what they do, with all the hundreds of cleansers on the market today. So where do you begin?
There are so many cleansers today that it is hard to determine what the best type is. Because everyone’s skin is so varied, different cleansers won’t work for some and will for others. The most important thing to do is to experiment with all different kinds of cleansers to find one that will give you the best results.
Here is a guide to some of the most popular cleanser types:
Cleansing creams, when applied, create a rich and thick cream that is ideal for anyone who has dry skin. The rich formulas are sensitive to skin and give extra moisture to dehydrated skin. Cleansing creams are also good for older women because they have been known to help slow the aging process.
Milk cleansers are ideal for people who have very oily or sensitive skin. Milk cleansers also work extremely well on young skin because of their low oil levels. If you have dry skin, stay away from milk cleansers because they will leave your skin even feeling drier. People who do use milk cleansers are advised to use a good moisturizer and apply it right after cleansing because milk cleansers are known to dry out the skin.
Cleansing bars are great for people who have very sensitive skin because they have such a mild formula. They are also great to use on very young children or babies.
These are great for people who have very oily skin because they contain no oil. They are also great for people who have normal or blemished skin. You will want a richer cleanser if you have dry skin.
These are ideal for people who are always on the go or do not have access to a sink and regular cleanser. They are easy to use and can be used anywhere. They do not need water so they are perfect for women when they go on vacation. Do not use them every day though, because they are extremely drying to the skin.
