Discover the Skin Benefits of Using a Cream Facial Cleanser

As we all know, cleansing is an essential step in our daily skincare routine and using a face cleanser is important for maintaining healthy and clear skin. Our face is exposed to different environmental pollutants, dirt, and bacteria throughout the day which, along with makeup, can clog our pores and cause breakouts. Cleansers work to remove these impurities and excess oil from our skin, leaving it feeling fresh and clean. Additionally, using a face cleanser can help to improve the effectiveness of other skincare products that you may be using, such as moisturisers and serums. It’s important to choose a cleanser that is suitable for your skin type and to use it consistently as part of your daily skincare routine. 

What to Avoid in a Face Cleanser

Everyone’s skin is unique, which is why it’s crucial to choose a face cleanser that is tailored to your specific needs. However, it’s equally important to know what to avoid in a face cleanser to ensure that it does not damage your skin. Using a cleanser with harsh synthetic ingredients, a high pH balance, and a high lather will instantly strip the natural oils from your skin and cause dehydration. When this happens, every product you use afterwards (including your serum and moisturiser) has to do major repair work to put moisture back into the skin. Here are some ingredients and types of cleansers that I recommend avoiding:

1. Harsh detergents: If you have dry or sensitive skin like me, steer clear of cleansers that contain harsh detergents like sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and ammonium lauryl sulfate (ALS). These ingredients can strip your skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness, irritation, and even acne.

2. Alcohol-based cleansers: If you have oily skin, you may be tempted to use alcohol-based cleansers to control oil production. However, these types of cleansers can be extremely drying and irritating to the skin.

3. Synthetic fragrances and artificial colors: If you have sensitive skin, avoid using cleansers that contain synthetic fragrances and artificial colors. These ingredients can cause allergic reactions and irritation, leading to dryness and discomfort.

4. Exfoliating cleansers: While exfoliating cleansers can be effective in removing dead skin cells, be cautious when using them, especially if you have sensitive or acne-prone skin. They can be too abrasive and cause further irritation and breakouts.

5. Hot water: Washing your face with hot water, can damage your skin’s natural moisture barrier leading to dryness and irritation. Instead, use lukewarm water to cleanse your face.

The Benefits of Cream Facial Cleansers

Whilst there are many different types of cleansers available on the market, cream facial cleansers have gained popularity in recent years due to the numerous benefits they provide to the skin.

One of the most significant benefits of using a cream cleanser is its ability to moisturise the skin. Unlike other types of cleansers that can strip the skin of its natural oils, cream cleansers work to hydrate and nourish the skin while cleansing it. This makes them an excellent choice for people with dry, sensitive, or mature skin, as they help to prevent dryness and maintain the skin’s natural moisture barrier.

Another advantage of using a cream cleanser is that it is gentle on the skin. Cream cleansers are typically formulated with mild ingredients that are less likely to irritate or inflame the skin. This makes them a great option for people with sensitive or acne-prone skin, as they can help to soothe and calm irritated skin without causing further damage.

Creamy cleansers also offer a luxurious and pampering experience. Their creamy texture feels soft and rich on the skin, making them perfect for a relaxing and indulgent cleansing routine. They often contain natural ingredients that help to calm and soothe the skin while providing a refreshing and rejuvenating cleanse.

In addition to these benefits, cream facial cleansers are also effective at removing makeup and other impurities from the skin. Their creamy texture allows them to dissolve makeup and dirt quickly and easily without leaving any residue behind. This makes them a convenient and effective option for people who wear makeup regularly.

Overall, cream facial cleansers offer a range of benefits for the skin and are an excellent choice for anyone looking for a gentle, moisturising, and effective way to cleanse their skin. Whether you have dry, sensitive, or mature skin, a cream face cleanser can help keep your skin looking and feeling its best.
