How To Pick The Right Cleanser For Your Skin Type

Prev1 of 4

To choose the right cleanser for your skin, look at its texture!

While cleansers only stay a short while on your face, its effects can go much further than that! A cleanser that’s too drying can easily exacerbate both oiliness and dryness, and scented cleansers can irritate sensitive skin. So you really want to be sure you’re picking the perfect cleanser for your skin type.

Thankfully, it’s easy to figure out– it all comes down to texture. Really, the texture of a cleanser can tell you a lot about its formulation and therefore, its effects on your skin. So buckle up and find out what belongs on your bathroom counter!

1. Dry Skin 

If you have normal-to-dry skin (you’ll know if your skin tends to feel tight immediately after a shower) then it’s best if you use a rich, creamy cleanser like this one that removes makeup and dirt without drying the skin. Creme cleansers are full of restorative moisturising plant oils that restore moisture to skin while giving it a good cleanse.
