How To Clean Your Face
Washing your face might not be glamorous but it’s very necessary. If you want to maintain youthful, healthy-looking skin, cleansing needs to be a twice-daily practice. Regular cleansing is the best way to ensure that your skin is purified, excess oil is lifted from your skin, and dead skin cells aren’t clogging your pores. If you’re unsure how you should be cleansing, we have some advice for you. Find out what to wash your face with according to your skin type below.
Sensitive Skin: Gentle Cleansers
Practice mindfulness with sensitive skin — using the wrong products can cause you to break out, feel tightness in your skin or experience redness. If you continually use the wrong products your skin will feel more uncomfortable than it should. Look for products that are fragrance and alcohol-free. If you like to wash your face with water a great option is Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Gentle Clarifying Cleansing Gel , which is a gentle cleanser formulated with plant extract and zinc. This cleanser can soften skin, minimize the appearance of imperfections and remove excess oil without drying or damaging your skin. If you prefer to go waterless, use http://www.garnierusa.com/products/skincare/facial-cleansers/sensitive-skin/makeup-removing-cleansing-lotion.aspx. All you need is two cotton balls and a dollop of this lotion which is formulated with powerful cleansing agents that dissolve impurities and even waterproof mascara. Glide the lotion cleanser over your skin to remove any dirt, makeup and sweat from your face. Your skin should feel cleansed and refreshed.
Another great product that’s compatible with sensitive skin is micellar water. There is no rinsing or harsh rubbing which are two things that can upset sensitive skin. Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-In-1 Makeup Remover & Cleanser thoroughly cleanses and refreshes skin without drying it out. Similarly to lotion cleanser you apply micellar water to cotton balls or cotton pads and glide them over your face to clean your skin. Micellar looks and feels like water but is an effective cleanser that can remove any sweat and makeup from your face easily.
Dry Skin: Hydrating Cleansers
If you have dry skin, avoid a harsh cleanser, which can further dry out your skin. Look for a gentle and nourishing product that can cleanse without removing necessary oils from your skin. There are many cleansing milks and gentle rinseable cleansers formulated for dry skin. You can also use the products listed for sensitive skin above.
Oily and Combination Skin: Salicylic Acid
Cleansers for oily skin should lift oil and sebum off your skin to purify your skin’s surface. It’s important that your cleanser is effective but not too harsh as this can cause your skin to produce more oil. Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Shine Control Cleansing Gel achieves a thorough clean on your skin by dissolving dirt, excess oil and makeup. Its formula is infused with charcoal and helps draws out impurities like a magnet. Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Purifying Oil-Free Cleansing Towelettes are a great way to manage oily skin while you are on the go or traveling. It’s the perfect product to mattify and remove excess oil from your skin even if you are stretched for time or away from a sink.
