Finding the best cleanser that suits your skin type is the most important step in your skin care routine. It makes a huge difference, it can make or break the appearance of your skin. You may think that hey! this product is not on my skin for more than a minute so it doesn't matter. Wrong! I started using a cleanser just for this reason and boy! did my skin purge. A good cleanser is the foundation for happy, healthy skin.
Finding a good cleanser for your skin strongly depends on your skin type. For those of you who have dry skin, it is important that you use a cleanser with ingredients like peptides or hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid. It should be soothing and not strip your skin of the limited oils you have or make your skin more dry. For those with oily skin, you should look for products with light textures with exfoliating acids such as glycolic acid. You should also try and stay away from cleansers which have sulfates and fragrances, it can be harsh and irritating for your skin.
