The two cleansers that are perfect for dry skin

When you have really dry skin it can sometimes be a challenge to cleanse it correctly. You definitely want to remove make up, dirt and sweat from your face so that your skin can renew and refresh itself. However you don’t want to dry out your skin or make it feel tight. There are two products that are perfect for your skin type to get the right clean without losing hydration and moisture. Read on to find your top cleanser picks.

1. Micellar Water

If you have dry skin micellar water is the perfect way to cleanse without drying your skin out. Micellar water is formulated with oil-based particles called micelles. Micelles attract dirt and impurities like a magnet without rinsing or harsh rubbing. To use micellar water, pour the liquid onto a cotton ball or pad, gently press the cotton onto your skin to activate the micelles, and lightly wipe your face. Repeat until your face is clean. Typically, it takes two to four cotton balls to completely clean your face depending on how much makeup you wear. Micellar water dissolves dirt, foundation, eye make up and impurities off your face without removing moisture. Garnier SkinActive’s Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Makeup Remover and Cleanser is the perfect product to gently clean your face without dehydrating it. It’s perfect to use in the morning or at night and can gently cleanse even the most dry skin types out there.

2. Cleansing Milk

Dry skin can be impacted negatively by harsh formulas such as those with alcohol or fragrance. Using the wrong products on sensitive skin can strip your skin of moisture or interfere with skin’s barrier function. Cleansers formulated with humectants and moisturizing components will help restore and refresh skin without drying it out. They also revitalize your skin’s barrier function which can react negatively with the wrong cleanser that can make it look more parched.

Garnier SkinActive’s Clean+ Makeup Removing Lotion Cleanser softens and cleanses your skin and is free of fragrance or alcohol. Even though it’s gentle, it’s effective and easily dissolves impurities — even waterproof mascara. Use a few drops of the cleansing milk on a cotton ball and gently wipe your face to remove any make up, oil or sweat from your face. You should be able to sweep off impurities on your skin in a gentle circular motion. Use enough product until all make up and impurities are removed then follow with a gentle hydrating moisturizer.
