Finding a good cleanser is like finding the holy grail. Not only is it one of the most important parts of your skincare routine, but it can really make a difference to how your skin looks and feels.
Finding the right cleanser is kind of like finding the right pair of jeans. You need to find something that really works for YOU. With so many different types of cleanser out there and your skin having its own unique needs, you need to make sure that the product you choose is the right one for your skin.
So where do you even begin? Let us help you find your ideal cleanser for skin that feels fresher than ever and ready for anything.
How To Choose The Right Cleanser For Your Skin Type
Skin cleansers come in many different varieties; it’s not ‘one cleanser fits all’ here. But the different formulas (Gel? Cream? Oil?) and ingredients can make it difficult to work out what you need.
The best way of finding a cleanser that works for you is to determine what your skin type is. Skin tends to fall into four main categories: oily, dry, combination and normal. But you also need to think about your lifestyle and other habits. Do you wear a lot of heavy makeup? Do you sweat it out in the gym a lot? How much time do you spend in the sun? The answers to these questions can help you figure out exactly what your skin needs.
For Dry Skin With A Damaged Moisture Barrier
Dry skin can appear red, flaky, and can lose its lustre - that’s the opposite of the stuff glowy skin dreams are made of! Your skin can also end up dry if you have spent too much time in the sun or air-conditioned indoor environments.
Dry skin lovelies can benefit from a cream cleanser like Super Hydrate-ME Creamy Cleanser. With aloe vera and coconut water, it’s soft and decadently creamy for a soothing, luxurious experience, and is a great cleanser for sensitive skin. If you’re not a fan of foaming cleansers, then this one’s for you as its hydrating formula makes it the best cleaner for dry skin. Cream cleansers are perfect for double cleansing and will gently rehydrate your skin to help bring the moisture back.
For Normal Skin In Need Of Some TLC
Normal skin is generally okay from day to day, but as life can be unpredictable. You never know when you might get a minor break out or a dry patch! The Purify-ME Gentle Cleanser is a fun jelly-like cleanser that simply melts into your skin, perfect for saying goodbye to a late night or a long day!
Gentle and super refreshing, it’s a fantastic everyday gel facial cleanser. With clinically-proven WildBerry Harvest™, it can help leave your skin feeling hydrated and ready for the day. Since it doesn’t strip the skin or leave the skin dry, it’s even a great cleanser for acne-prone skin. Why not try a double cleanse for extra skin goodness?
For Makeup Queens
If you love wearing makeup, make sure you embrace a skincare routine too ensuring you’ve got a permanently smooth, hydrated base to create all of those gorgeous looks.
A cleansing oil is perfect for breaking down your makeup, and it’s the best makeup remover for mascara. If you’ve been wearing heavy makeup or waterproof eye makeup, use the Super Hydrate-ME Cleansing Oil with macadamia and rice bran to take away the day. Simply apply to dry skin then add water to emulsify. You can follow up with a gel or cream formula for that super effective double-cleanse.
Using A Cleanser As Part Of Your Skincare Routine
Cleansing your skin is the crucial first step in your skincare routine, taking away all the makeup and dirt of the day. For the ultimate skincare routine, follow the steps below:
- Cleanse your skin with your chosen cleanser, double cleansing where needed.
- Next, use a hydrating mist or a serum like our Light Beam Radiance Serum to lock-in moisture.
- Use a day or night cream to moisturise your face and leave it feeling super smooth.
- Use an eye cream to look after your eye’s delicate skin and leave it feeling plumped (no crow’s feet here!).
Girls, finding the right type of cleanser is like finding your own Mr Big. Once you’ve got it, don’t let it go!
