What’s the Right Skin Cleanser for Me?
Cleansing of the face and body are both important step in our routines to remove daily build up, dirt, sweat and dead skin cells. It preps a clean canvas so that the goodness of other skincare products can be absorbed well – toner, moisturiser and lotion.
There are sooo many cleansers out there all with different type of functions and ingredients! It can get really overwhelming and confusing, so which one should you even choose?
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SKIN CLEANSER FOR YOUR FACE:
1. Gentle cleansers are the way to go
There is no need for harsh cleansers with ingredients that will strip your skin off! Using them will cause more damage than good, while it effectively removes dirt, it removes the moisturizing oils present naturally in our skin as well. This will lead to overproduction of oil, clogged pores and breakouts.
Using a gentle cleanser without soap, sulfates or other harsh ingredients is better for your skin. They work just as well and does not damage your skin!
2. pH balanced
Let’s refresh on some science knowledge – pH is a scale that measures the acid-alkaline ratio of a substance (1 – most acidic, 7 – neutral and 14 – most alkali).
There’s something called – acid mantle, a slightly acidic barrier film that sits on our skin to protect our skin from pollutants and bacterial growth. This acid mantle should be maintained at a pH ranging from 4.0 – 5.5.
It is important to choose a cleanser that is pH balanced, low pH or a neutral pH because a high pH cleanser will disrupt the skin’s acid mantle. Removing the natural protection will cause skin to be more prone to bacteria, irritation and other complexion issues.
3. Hydrating ingredients
Choose a face wash that is packed with hydrating ingredients. Washing your face can be drying, with a cleanser that brings moisture back to your skin, it won’t feel tight and dry after every wash. This helps to protect and maintain skin barrier too, keeping your skin healthy and moisturized.
4. No fragrance for your sensitive skin
If you have sensitive skin, it is best to opt for fragrance-free products. As fragrances have the potential to cause allergic reactions, irritation and redness. Use a cleanser without fragrance to save your sensitive skin from unnecessary reactions.
Picking the right cleanser for your face is super important. If you are dealing with any skin issues right now, maybe it’s time to take a good look at the cleanser you are using, it might be the cause of your skin problems. Washing your face or body should be a comfortable experience, it is never normal to feel tight or dry skin after each wash.
