Wondering how to decide which cleanser is best for your face? The decision can be hard given that today, we find ourselves inundated with a dizzying variety of brands on the shelves that each boast their own unique formula to clear skin. Fret not as we’ll be sharing the two most important tips on how to avoid the complicated decision-making game when it comes to choosing the best face cleanser for your skin.
Know the Basics
A cleanser shouldn’t be chosen just because it is using a special ingredient or is riding on a newly-invented formula. Instead, there is a need to make sure that it is able to fulfil the most basic needs for your skin.
The cleanser is a humble but essential product that is a must in every skincare routine. It is the foundation of every proper cleansing regime as it helps to remove dirt, grim, oil, bacteria, and make up, at the end of a long day. A good cleanser will also help you unclog your pores by getting rid of the accumulated dirt, preventing breakouts and pimples from surfacing.
Something most people forget is that cleansing preps the skin for application of skincare products. Clean skin can absorb other skin products better, making skincare products much more effective.
One must be resilient with cleansing, especially if one has acne prone skin. It is important to pick the right cleanser and to use it every day, as improper cleansing will result in aggravation of existing acne.
Confused By Cleansers? Listen To Your Skin.
It’s time to start focusing less on what each different cleanser brand can do, and paying more attention on what your skin needs. Often times, we get swept up with brand new cleansers with cute or sleek designs, that we forget that at the end of the day, we shouldn’t be buying a cleanser because it catches our eye. We should buy cleansers that fulfill our skin’s needs. To do this, start thinking more about your skin, rather than on the excitement of trying out a different brand of cleanser.
One good example is Dermagold’s line of cleansers, which were developed to tackle different skin types. We’ve kept it simple by categorising our cleansers based on your individual skin needs.
- For Sensitive, Dry or Normal skin – Delicate Skin Cleansing Mousse
- For Oily skin, Acne prone skin or combination skin – Purifying Cleanser
- For Pigmented and Pigment prone skin – C White Cleanser
- To Remove Make-up – Radiance Cleansing Milk (*recommended for use at night with one of above cleansers to ensure full cleansing of the skin)
Keep these two tips on mind the next time you venture out in search for a new cleanser for yourself.
