Beauty Buzz in Face Care

There are Facial Cleansers for Every Skin Type

Whether your skin is acne prone, dry, or somewhere in between, you will be able to find a facial wash that suits you. The basic goal of all cleansers is to remove makeup, oil, and dirt. Other cleaning objectives vary by skin type. Acne-prone and oily skin needs a cleanser that deep cleans pores, removing oil and bacteria. Dry skin needs a gentle cleanser that removes makeup and impurities without stripping away natural oils. As we get older, our skin welcomes ingredients that combat aging in all skin care products, including cleansers.

There are a variety of basic skin cleansers that are made to work on all skin types. Elizabeth Arden 2 in 1 Cleanser is a foaming cleanser and toner that cleans and leaves skin feeling soft, not dry. Detaille Citrovinaigre de Beaute Lemon Vinegar Soft Cleansing Lotion gently removes makeup from normal, dry and oily skin. The acid from fresh lemons purifies the skin and restores the natural pH balance. For women who like using bar soap, Reviva Labs Oatmeal Soap is an excellent choice. The oatmeal absorbs excess oils as it cleanses and soothes skin, leaving it feeling smooth to the touch. This mild vegetable bar is suitable for all skin types except for those with dry skin.

Woman with dry skin will appreciate the moisturizing properties and anti-oxidant protection found in Avene Eau Thermale Gentle Milk Cleanser. This no-rinsing, soap-free cleanser is safe for even very dry, sensitive skin. Another product worth trying for dry skin is Clarins Cleansing Milk, made with alpine herbs to gently remove makeup and surface impurities.

Acne prone skin requires a more intensive cleanser, such as Dermalogica Clean Start Wash, which contains salicylic acid to clear trapped oils and bacteria, eliminating future breakouts. Botanical extracts help regulate oil production, while orange peel oil leaves skin feeling energized. Murad Clarifying Cleanser has been scientifically proven to reduce 99.9% of irritating surface bacteria in less than one minute. Triclosan and salicylic acid in this deep-cleaning gel formula aid in reducing acne blemishes to keep skin clear.

Today, we can even find cleansers that help combat the effects of aging with ingredients such as antioxidants. A good product to try is Dermalogica Skin Resurfacing Cleanser which uses lactic acid concentrate to re-texturize skin by removing surface debris, and helping accelerate cell renewal. This silky cleanser dramatically improves skin texture and prepares it for maximum penetration of other Dermalogica AGE Smart products. Derived from antioxidant properties of ginseng and green tea extracts, Valmont Natural Cleansing Gel removes makeup and eliminates impurities while respecting the natural pH balance of skin.

Whatever your skin type, dry, normal, or oily, finding the right cleanser is the first step in an effective skin care routine.

Comments about 100% Pure Tonique - Jasmine Green Tea, 177ml/6oz:
There are beauty experts that say that you don't need a toner but I love using one. I am an older woman with dry, sensitive skin so I try very hard to keep my products as natural and gentle as possible. This toner is wonderful - it smells great, it is gentle and it contains ingredients that moisturize the skin but most of all it is 100% pure. I noticed that they have changed the packaging and the bottle seems to be smaller. I would still buy it again

Comments about Nippon Kodo Pelican Deitanseki Soap Clay & Charcoal Facial Cleansing Bar, 150g/5.3oz:
It removes everything from my skin, i.e. perfume, makeup, hand soap residue. Not perfumey. One thing not great is that it is not carried by alot of retailers and hard to find locally. Would love to see Whole Foods Market in Houston, TX carry this product.

Comments about Sisley Phyto-Blanc Buff and Wash Facial Gel, 100ml/3.5oz:
I am a huge fan of Sisley Paris skincare and their cleansing and toning products are one of my favorites. This face wash is simply amazing and if only I could give it a 6 star rating, I definitely would. In general, I love scrubs that really do polish your face and their microbeads are rather harsh. This "buff and wash facial gel" does not disappoint as it also has beads that are scratchy, however gentle enough for everyday use. I fell like my skin is clean, smooth and more radiant. As described on the packaging - it is indeed a perfect way to start each day. The only downside for some could be the scent of the gel that has a botanical aroma to it, but I don't mind it at all. Oh, and one more thing - Beauty Encounter has the best pricing deals on Sisley Paris!!!!
