A Guide to Cleansers

Posted by Bree Bruce

Whether you're the kind of lady who wears a full face of makeup on the daily or you prefer a less is more approach to your makeup, one thing is universally true, you're washing your face twice a day - at least we hope you are, if you're not that's a whole separate convo we should have. Finding the right cleanser for your skin type and skin needs can sometimes be tricky, and what your skin type is and what it needs can vary depending on hormones and the season, so it's key to pay attention to your skin, it will tell you what it needs if you know what to look for. Let us break it down for you.

For skin that tends to be oily and/or acne prone, a foaming gel is ideal. And if you can find one that is brightening or contains Vitamin C and/or A that's a plus, as these ingredients will help lighten and fade any past and future acne marks. Our Recommendation: Fitglow Beauty Vita-Active Gel Cleanser or Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser.

If your skin is more dry and sensitive, a cream cleanser is the way to go. Cream cleansers will cleanse while also moisturizing, protecting, and soothing your skin. Our Recommendations: Pai Skincare Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser or Fitglow Beauty Calm Cleansing Milk.

If your main concern is removing makeup at the end of the day then an excellent option is a balm or oil based cleanser. These cleansers will break down and remove even the most heavy duty and/or waterproof makeup. Our Recommendations: One Love Organics Vitamin B Enzyme Cleansing Oil or Skin Savior

If you have Normal to Combination skin and are just looking for a good basic does it all type of cleanser you can't go wrong with Rosehip Cleanser from Indie Lee or Easy Does It from One Love Organics. While the Rosehip Cleanser is also ideal for very sensitive and dry skin it won't cause breakouts or excess oil and the gel formula will easily remove makeup. And Easy Does It works great for cleansing your face, body, hair, and even your makeup brushes. It's also perfect for those who love a good foam.
