Dry Skin Facial Cleansers: Mild cleansing that rehydrates and moisturizes is ideal for dry skin types. Botanicals and essential oils in creamy bases that soothe dry skin while gently removing impurities are smart choices.
Normal Skin Facial Cleansers: Gels, lotions and creamy cleansers are all appropriate choices for normal skin types. Normal skin benefits from ingredients that clean, exfoliate and leave the skin with a balanced surface.
Combination Skin Facial Cleansers: Combination skin tends to be oily in the t-zone and dry on the perimeter and cheeks. So use cleansers that address both oiliness and dryness without stripping all your natural oils.
Oily Skin Facial Cleansers: Cleansing oily skin is a like walking a tightrope; balance is needed. Cleansing too often or with too harsh a cleanser will strip the skin, causing it to power into overdrive, producing even more oil.
Acne Prone Skin Facial Cleansers: Cleansers for acne prone skin should attack bacteria, soothe, calm and exfoliate. Look for antibacterial and purifying ingredients like benzyl peroxide, salicylic acid and sulfur.
Sensitive Skin Facial Cleansers: Sensitive skin needs gentle cleansing. Look for minimal ingredients in your cleansing choices. Cleansers that include calming ingredients and cleanse without irritation are perfect choices.
Dilated Capillaries / Rosacea: Calming and soothing while gently removing dead skin and impurities is the goal for cleansers for dilated capillaries and rosacea skins. Plant extracts that combat redness are perfect choices.
Mature Skin Facial Cleansers: Mature skin benefits from anti-aging and exfoliating ingredients that hydrate and brighten the skin. Rich cleansers that remove makeup and impurities are appropriate choices.
Sun Damage / Hyperpigmentation; Cleansers that brighten and exfoliate are the first step in overcoming hyperpigmented or sun damaged skin. Alpha Hydroxy Acids soften and prepare skin for further treatment.
