Do you like to lather your face in a foaming cleanser? Do you prefer to skip the water and use a cream cleanser with a cloth or tissue? Or do you prefer a cleanser that contains beads to slough away dead skin cells? Cleansers are personnel and they not only clean your skin but can be a very pampering part of the day. Cleansers need to remove dirt, pollution, oils, dead skin cells, etc . However, they can also accelerate the results you can expect from other cosmetic products. I.e. if your cleanser effectively removes dead skin cells, then a cosmetic serum is going to go deeper in the dermis and make effectively be more effective. Some cleansers contain AHA/BHA’s to remove dead skin cells without beads. Some face washes will lighten the skin. We recommended an all rounded product that compliments your skin without causing any irritation. Your skin type should guide you choice product however, for example, if you suffer from acne, you should use a product that calms the skin.
