A face cleanser is a formulation to help remove dirt, oil and impurities from skin. By removing these impurities, face cleansers help restore the skin’s balance and prepare it for the rest of your skincare routine. Use a face wash, cream cleanser or gentle cleanser formulated for your skin concerns to effectively cleanse without stripping skin of natural oils.
What is the difference between a face cleanser and a face scrub?
Face cleansers and scrubs are both designed to cleanse skin, remove dirt and oil, and leave it with a refreshed feeling. Unlike a facial cleanser such as Ultra Facial Cleanser, face scrubs have an ingredient that gives it texture which helps exfoliate surface skin to leave the skin looking smooth and refined. Try an exfoliating facial scrub formulated with Amazonian White Clay.
How often should you use a face cleanser?
We recommend using a face cleanser twice a day—morning and night—as the first step in your skincare routine. After exercising, you should also cleanse your skin with a foaming cleanser like Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash or a detoxifying pore cleanser to remove dirt, sweat and oil. Take care not to over cleanse your skin as that may strip skin of natural oils which help protect your skin barrier.
How often should you use a face scrub?
Some face scrubs are formulated to be used daily while an exfoliating scrub may be used several times a week for a deeper exfoliation. Check the directions for your facial scrub or exfoliating face wash to see how often you should use this exfoliating formula.
How do I choose the right face cleanser for my skin type?
As the first step in your skincare routine, it’s important to find the best formulation of facial cleansers for your skin type like a gel cleanser, face wash for dry skin to help remove dirt, oil, and impurities from the skin. Read on to find the best cleanser for your skin type.
