New ways to use your cleanser that you haven’t thought of before
A cleanser should be a staple in your beauty routine. You likely have a favorite cleanser somewhere in your bathroom. Did you know that there are many other functions of cleansers aside from just washing your face? We’re looking at five ways that you can use cleansers in less likely ways below. Read on for more information on ways to use your cleanser.
1. Cleanser As A Mask
Get the deep-cleaning and restorative powers of a mask with your cleanser. If your skin is on the oilier side look for a product with kaolin or clay in it to help clarify and refresh your skin. Garnier Skin Active’s Clean+ Pore Purifying 2-in-1 Clay Cleanser/Mask has a clay-based formula that includes charcoal, which can draw out impurities like a magnet. It also purifies pores and makes your skin glow which is always a good thing!
2. Cleanser As A Scrub
You can get the exfoliating effects of your scrub by using the right cleanser. Garnier SkinActive’s Clean+ Invigorating Daily Scrub is infused with peppermint to instantly energize skin. This scrubbing cleanser softens your skin and helps remove dead surface skin cells. It can make your skin more amenable to absorbing products and can help products such as serums, moisturizers and toner attain their maximum efficiency.
3. Cleanser As A Make Up Fix
It’s easy to have a make up mishap — a little too much bronzer here, a slip of mascara there, too much eyeliner. You don’t want to start over and wash your face from scratch so a localized cleansing product is perfect. Garnier SkinActive’s Micellar Cleansing Water All-In-1 Make Up Remover And Cleanser can easily dissolve any excess make up and even dissolve waterproof mascara. Use a cotton pad or Q-Tip to cleanse the affected area.
4. Cleanser As Off-Road Hand Wash
If you find yourself somewhere without running water but need to clean your hands, try micellar water. A few drops of the liquid cleanser in your hands, then rub them together and voilà you have clean hands. It’s perfect to use in a variety of scenarios: use it to clean hands during apple picking, while at an outdoor event or during a road trip. Micellar water can lift any dirt of grime easily off your hands so that they feel clean and refreshed even when there is no sink in sight. Another option is cleansing towelletes, which can easily be used not just for your face but for your hands if you need to quickly clean them while traveling. Garnier SkinActive’s Clean + Purifying Oil-Free Cleansing Towelletes can easily remove dirt and oil. Your hands will be refreshed in no time.
5. Cleanser As A Cleansing Mist
Micellar water can also easily refresh your face when you’re on the go. Say you’re on a hike or exercising outside and need to get some sweat and dirt off your face. Use micellar water to spritz and refresh. Just fill it into a spritzer bottle and use it as a touch up cleanser while on the go. Your skin will feel energized and clean.
