Are you feeling lost when choosing a good facial cleanser? Don’t worry because that is totally relatable! There are a lot of cleansing options in the market, and beauty commercials may overwhelm you.

But not all of them are telling you the truth, believe me. You are the only one who knows what your skin needs. After all, it is your face! 

If you’re wondering how to find a good facial cleanser, worry no more because I am here to help you know what to look for when choosing the right one for you.

1. Your Facial Cleanser Does Not Cause Breakouts and Dryness

You have to check the ingredients carefully, so please do read the labels. Know what specific substance irritates your skin. A cleanser that triggers breakouts is a BIG NO-NO! Breakouts can mean that the cleanser and your skin are not compatible.

Too many harsh chemicals can cause dryness in your skin. Watch out for ingredients like alcohol and sodium lauryl sulfate.

Alcohol harms the skin’s protective surface and it can age your skin much faster. While Sodium lauryl sulfate can cause skin rashes and allergic reactions. So, better stay away from those.

2. Your Facial Cleanser Helps Improve Your Skin Conditions

Find a cleanser that can make your skin healthier because that is exactly what a cleanser is supposed to do.

You know, what? A good face cleanser has a promising job description. Firstly, it gets rid of dirt and bacteria. Secondly, it removes excess oil without drying your face.  

Lastly, it removes stubborn makeup that can clog your pores. So, you should notice that your skin is softer and cleaner after every wash. Yay!

4. Your Facial Cleanser Improves Your Skin’s Complexion

A good cleanser has whitening effects that can brighten your skin.  Do you know that your skin needs vitamins too? Essential nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin E, and pomegranate extracts can lighten dark spots.

Trust me, your face will look fairer after regular use. Wait ’til your crush tells you, “Hey! You look blooming.”

5. Your Facial Cleanser is a Match Made in Heaven

There are 4 types of skin. Knowing which one you have is also an important factor when choosing “the right one”. Follow this guide and your skin will thank you later.

For Oily Skin Types

Foam cleansers or a cleanser with a charcoal ingredient will work best. A foam cleanser exfoliates dead skin cells and helps reduce sebum secretion. Charcoal, on the other hand, is best for cleansing pores without drying or irritating the skin.

For People with Sensitive Skin

You should use a face wash with mild ingredients like aloe vera and green tea. These ingredients can help remove dead skin cells and balance the PH level.

For Dry Skin Types

Use foam or oil cleanser. These are hydrating cleansers that will not strip off your skin’s natural oil and moisture.

For People with Acne-Prone Skin

You should look for a cleanser with salicylic acid. Salicylic acid can treat breakouts and blackheads effectively.
