Face Cleansers Suitable For Every Skin Type
Let's talk about cleansers today! Your cleansing solution is an important part of your skincare routine. Did you know that using the wrong cleanser could also be a hidden factor that could be triggering your skin condition? Sometimes, without you even knowing... Ooops!
Facial cleansers come in many formulations such as foam, gel, milk, balms, jelly and even powder. The key here is picking the right formulation for your skin type.
If you have ever experienced symptoms like irritation, redness, sensitivity, imbalanced oiliness or excessive dryness after cleansing, it could be a sign that your cleanser is stripping your skin barriers and natural pH level. This happens because the cleanser has “disrupted the skin barrier,” stripping the skin’s natural oils and compromising its natural pH level. Not only does your skin now feels ‘drier’ than it was before, it will also be unable to absorb your moisturizer as readily.
Keeping all of that in mind, here below we have two of the best cleansers that are good fits for what you should look for in a daily cleanser.
We recommend the Quinoa Gel Balanced Cleanser by Axis-Y. This cleanser clears makeup and pores in one step while delivering a gentle and hydrating wash at your skin’s natural pH. The combination of quinoa and healthy nutrients remove environmental toxins to reveal healthy, lively skin. The best part is feeding your skin with antioxidants while cleansing it.
The main effects of this cleanser are:
- Gently, but effectively cleanse the skin
- Remove waterproof makeup
- Remove excess keratin and free radicals
- Rebuilds skin for a supple and smooth complexion
Get the best cleansing experience with as less product which is using only 1-2 pumps from the Quinoa Gel Balanced Cleanser. This is enough to effectively remove dirt, oil and makeup. For a more precise cleansing, you can remove makeup first with a makeup remover, while following up with this cleanser as second cleansing.
Second on the list; the (globally) top-ranked, COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser. It has been long famous for it’s best-known mild pH 5.5 cleanser formulation that has eventually become a staple in the routines of those who have tried.
So what makes a pH balanced cleanser very important?
Your skin’s pH is naturally a little acidic (a.k.a pH of 4.5). Cleansers tend to be more on the naturally alkaline (pH of 6-12) because alkalinity is what helps remove grime and dirt. Unfortunately, the alkalinity of a cleanser is the factor that could dry out and irritate your skin. This in all, are the culprits to causing the tight, unpleasant feeling. Skincare junkies and especially sensitive skin types out there, a low pH cleanser is a must!
If you are looking for a facial cleanser that has a neutral pH value, here is the COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser. Extremely beneficial for sensitive and dry skin types due to the balanced pH levels. It also works for acne-prone/oily skin types because of the pore-friendly ingredients.
