How To Find The Best Facial Cleaner

If you’ve been struggling to find a good facial cleanser that doesn’t irritate your skin or cause breakouts, this post is for you. In the following paragraphs, we’ll discuss some factors to look for when searching for the best facial cleanser for your skin type.

1. What level of exfoliation is right for your skin?

There are two different levels of exfoliation: mild, and vigorous. Mild exfoliation won’t remove your skin’s surface layer (top 2 layers), so it can leave behind some dead skin cells that can cause breakouts. However, it’s a good idea to use mild exfoliation every few weeks or so to help remove dead skin cells and keep pores healthy. Vigorous exfoliation will remove your skin’s surface layer (top 2 layers). The reason why you want to make sure that your facial cleanser is labeled as “vigorous” is because some facial cleansers contain ingredients that can actually worsen acne, if used on their own or in abundance. These ingredients include baking soda, lye, and many others.

2. How much is your skin oily or dry?

These days, a lot of facial cleansers are oil-free or contain very little oil. This can make it difficult for people who have oily skin because their face just tends to break out more. For example, if you have dry skin and you use a facial cleanser with low levels of oil in it, your face would still be very dry after cleansing because the cleanser would be drying out the top layer of skin on your face.

3. What type of ingredients do you want in your facial cleanser?

Most facial cleansers use ingredients that are gentle and mild, because the skin on your face is very sensitive, so there’s no reason to use harsh ingredients. However, some people prefer a more potent, concentrated formula. If you would like a more intensive facial cleanser that uses ingredients such as salicylic acid, glycolic acid etc., make sure to choose a product that’s labeled “Intensive” or “Strong”.
