How To Choose The Best Facial Cleanser For Your Skin?

A cleanser removes buildup, dirt, makeup, and other unwanted particles to keep your face clean, fresh, and ready for the next step in your skincare routine. 

You have to choose the perfect cleanser that suits your skin type. Yes! We can see thousands of brands available in the skincare market. So it is hard to pick the perfect one for you. Read below and find out how exactly to find the perfect cleanser for you.

What is the difference between cleanser and face wash?

The primary function of both the skincare products is the same – cleansing your skin. But how they clean your skin is not quite the same.

A Face wash is a water-based formulation, available as gel and foam textures. Its astringent and foaming properties deeply clean your skin pores and combat oil production. Cleansers come in thick, milky, cream, or clay textures that primarily cleanse, hydrate, and soothe your skin.

Both face washes and cleansers contain synthetic detergents (surfactants) to wash away the dirt from your face. These surfactants (surface active agents) include a hydrophilic (water-loving) and hydrophobic (water-hating but oil or grease-loving) tail. The hydrophobic portion attaches to the oil and dirt particles to form structures called micelles. These micelles trap the dirt particles and wash them away with a good rinse.

Now we can find how to find the best cleanser for your skin.

Avoid harmful chemicals:

  • Sulfates: When sulphuric acid reacts with another chemical, salts called sulfates will form. SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) and SLES (sodium Laureth sulfate) are the common sulfates used in cleansers. They are the source that creates the foam or lather. They irritate your eyes and skin sometimes. Always try to be away from these chemicals if you have sensitive skin.
  • Parabens: The function of paraben is like a preservative in cleansers. It keeps your facial cleansers fresh and germ-free for a long time. It belongs to chemical families like butyl, methyl, and propyl. Parabens are hormone disruptors that can lead to breast cancer.
  • Phthalates: The function of phthalates is like a spreader that helps cleansers for easy spreading. Phthalates include reproductive and developmental toxins, and they are endocrine disruptors.
  • Mineral oil: Mineral oil can clog pores in the face skin and lead to severe breakouts. Only natural plant oils can nourish your skin without clogging the pores. 
  • Fragrance: Always Cleanser fragrance associates with chemicals and triggers allergic reactions in your skin. Choose products with essential oils or plant extracts if you want fragrance-induced products in your skincare routine.

Consider your skin type:  

It is crucial to find your skin type before buying a cleanser. It is the action you need to do with complete care. A facial cleanser that does not suit your skin type will result in irritation and acne breakouts.  

Following are the various skin types:

  • Normal/regular: This skin type has the perfect needed moisture and oil balance. 
  • Oily: People with oily skin usually complain of greasiness after washing it.  
  • Dry: Dry skin generally appears flaky without the perfect moisture content and oil.  

Check the consistency of facial cleansers:  

Generally, facial cleansers come in a wide variety of consistency. Some may be thick and creamy, and some may be a clear and gel-like structure. Think about your skin type because different forms match different skin types.  

Harsh cleansers:

When buying a facial cleanser, do not forget to check the label and ingredients list. That information on the label can give you an idea about the ingredients used in the facial cleanser. Thus, you can find whether the facial cleanser you are eyeing to buy fits your skin type or not.  

Exfoliating ingredients:  

Choose a facial cleanser that has exfoliating ingredients. A facial cleanser with microbeads and peaches can effectively exfoliate your skin. These ingredients can regularly remove your dead skin cells, promote blood circulation, and add luster to your skin with regular use.

Keeping a skin diary:  

There are hundreds of facial cleansers available in the market today. They can influence us easily with their looks and advertisements. People without any experience in choosing a facial cleanser in the past may fall easily. Try to maintain a record of your skin progression, types of facial cleansers you have used, results you have obtained, and their side effects. This record can help you compare different facial cleansers and find the best one for you.

Take some time to hear from friends and family:  

Suggestions from your trustable friends and family circle can help you make the decision soon. You can get ideas from your social friends who have the same skin type as yours.

Online reviews: 

The Internet is an excellent source of information to get more ideas when choosing a facial cleanser. This platform is accessible to every human being, and you can read millions of reviews about all facial cleansers. This review helps you determine how a specific facial cleanser works. Find the official brand websites, check personal blogs, and read social media comments to get an idea.

It helps people with dry skin to keep the fluid in the skin and protects it from allergens and external aggressors.

Best Facial Cleanser For Dark Spots

How do dark spots form on our skin?

Best Facial Cleanser For African American Skin

The African American skin has larger sebaceous glands than normal skin tones. These sebaceous glands are the microscopic oil-producing regions that lubricate the skin and hair. This high oil production helps the skin hold in moisture and makes the skin smoother and look younger. The other thing is that higher oil production of sebaceous glands allows acne and other facial inflammations more likely to occur. Sometimes, people with darker skin tones may experience post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Here, after an acne spot has healed, their skin over-produces melanin in the particular area and leaves a splotchy look that lasts for weeks afterward. Reduce this overactive sebaceous gland effects and prevent acne and other unsightly skin difficulties by diligently cleaning your skin. 

What are the vital ingredients for African American skin?

Following are some key ingredients that need to be available in cleansers for African American skin. They are 

  • Glycolic acid

How to Use a Cleanser for Better Results?

Keep these things in your mind for a result-filled cleansing experience. 

  • Wet your hands and splash your face with water before applying the cleanser to your skin in the case of a rinse-off facial cleanse your face with dirty hands. Wash your hands well before cleansing your skin, and that can help you avoid transferring bacteria from your fingers to your face.
  • Use this cleansing time to do a face massage. You can utilize this cleansing routine as an opportunity to give some pampering to your facial skin. Gently massage your cleanser onto your skin with small circular motions with light pressure before rinsing off. Try to treat your skin kindly. Do not scrub harshly to get more results.
  • Do not over-cleanse your face. Whatever your skin type, using a facial cleanser twice a day (in the morning and again at night) is sufficient under normal circumstances. 
  • It is better to cleanse your face in lukewarm water to prevent stripping the natural oils from your skin. Extreme water temperatures will result in the opposite effect of what you are trying to accomplish.
  • The best time to apply moisturizer on your face is when your skin is damp after cleansing. Apply your moisturizer before your cleanser. It will help you work a good lather to catch dirt and oil before rinsing. Do not grab your towel. 

TakeAway
