The Hydrating Cleansers You Need in Your Life
Cleansing your skin is important and highly beneficial to your overall complexion. Throughout the course of the day you accumulate dead skin cells, dirt, sweat, grime and oil on skin’s surface. You should be cleansing your skin twice a day with the right cleanser however you should not be stripping your skin of precious moisture in the process. If your skin feels tight, dry or irritated after cleansing you might be using the wrong product. We’re describing three cleansers that will clean your skin and leave it hydrated.
All Skin Types
Micellar water is a super easy way to cleanse your skin while still keeping it hydrated. Micellar water is filled with oil-based particles called micelles which attract impurities like a magnet without rinsing or harsh rubbing. Using micellar water is also super easy — simply soak two cotton balls with micellar water then gently glide them over your face to cleanse. Micellar water will dissolve any dirt, oil, foundation, and eye makeup off your face. Garnier SkinActive’s Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Makeup Remover and Cleanser is a gentle way to remove products or dirt from your face without irritating your skin. It also makes the perfect travel companion and is super easy to use at the gym. No matter what your skin type micellar water can help you achieve clean skin regularly without stripping it of essential moisture.
Sensitive And Dry Skin
As we previously learned, cleansing doesn’t always have to be a soap-and-water affair. This is particularly true if you have dry or sensitive skin, which can react negatively when it is exposed to harsh formulas that may strip skin of its moisture or interfere with skin’s protective barrier function. A gentle, fragrance-free cleanser formulated with humectants or ceramides is perfect for your skin type. Cleansers with this type of formulation will restore moisture and hydration to you skin while cleansing it. They also make your skin’s outer barrier stronger and more resilient to outside aggressors, such as pollution. Garnier SkinActive’s Clean+ Makeup Removing Lotion Cleanser softens and cleanses your skin. It’s effective enough to dissolve impurities and waterproof mascara. The formula infused with plant extract leaves skin feeling moisturized and protected. Apply a few drops onto a cotton pad and gently wipe your face to remove any make up, oil or sweat from your face by gently gliding the cotton pad across your face. You may need more than one pad depending on how much make you are wearing. Once you notice that there is are no more traces of make up or dirt on the cotton pad you can stop cleansing and follow with a hydrating moisturizer.
Clay Mask + Cleanser
If your skin is on the oilier side or you have blemishes, finding the right cleanser is crucial to lift impurities from skin’s surface and help your skin feel refreshed. Even though your skin is on the oily side this does not mean you should aim to dry it out. Rather, you should be using products that can hydrate and restore. Garnier SkinActive’s Pore Purifying 2-in-1 Clay Cleanser/Mask has a clay-based formula. The charcoal acts like a magnet for impurities and the cleanser purifies pores and makes the appearance of your skin glow. At the same time it softens and hydrates. Follow this mask with an oil-regulating moisturizer to ensure your skin is clean and balanced after your morning or nightly skin care ritual.
