Skin Cleanser Dos and Don’ts

Cleansers are used to remove makeup, sweat, oil, dirt, dead skin cells, and general grime. Cleansers help you unclog your pores and can also help to prevent acne. If you wear makeup, one of the most important things you can do for your skin is to clean it at the end of your day. If you use soap and water, you can remove too much oil from the skin, which could dry it out. You can also end up with even more oil because removing so much of it, may make your sebaceous glands produce even more oil. A good facial cleanser often incorporates moisturizers to alleviate the effects of too much oil removal. Soaps are made of salts of fatty acids. Most of these fats come from animal or vegetable sources and include stearic acid, palmitic oleic and lauric. Soap particles coat fat droplets, that allows them to be removed by water. Skin has a natural PH of 5.5. Most soap has a ph of 9 or 10, so using it may create an overgrowth of bacteria and can lead to pimples.

Best Facial Cleansing for Normal Skin

  1. Don’t wash your face more than twice a day.
  2. Don’t use bar soap or high detergent soaps.
  3. Don’t use cleansers that have alcohol in them as they can be drying to your skin.

Best Facial Cleansers for Oily Skin

Skin becomes oily when it produces too much sebum. The good news is that people with oily skin tend to show signs of age at a slower rate than those with dry skin. The bad news is that oily skin can make pores look larger and can make the skin look oily or dirty. Here are some cosmetics tips for the cleansing oily skin:

  1. Don’t wash your face more than twice a day unless you’ve been heavily perspiring.
  2. Don’t scrub your skin.
  3. You may make acne worse and just irritate the skin.
  4. Do use your fingertips to wash your face, rather than using a wash cloth.
  5. It’s gentler on the skin.
  6. Do use a cleanser with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide.

Best Facial Cleansers for Dry Skin

  1. Do cleanse your skin once or twice a day.
  2. Don’t use harsh bar soaps or detergents.

Best Facial Cleansers for Sensitive Skin

  1. Don’t wash your face more than twice a day.
  2. Don’t use bar soap on your face.
  3. Don’t use mechanical exfoliation (beads or scrubby particles) in your cleanser. It can be irritating.
  4. Do look for hypoallergenic skin cleanser.
  5. Don’t use cleansers with fragrance. Even pure essential oils can irritate sensitive skin.
