Which cleanser to use to clean your face?
At Oh My Cream we swear by the double cleansing method. This is a method that consists of cleansing your face in two steps: first, you remove your makeup with a cleansing oil, for example, and then you continue with a cleansing gel, a cleansing cream or a cleansing foam, depending on your preferences and your skin type (dry skin, normal skin, combination skin or oily skin). In the end, the best face cleanser is the one that is adapted to your skin type and skin problems! This second step is essential for perfecting makeup removal and ridding the skin of impurities that have accumulated during the day: pollution particles, makeup residue, excess sebum.
What is the mistake not to make when you want to to take care of your skin ?
However, be careful not to fall into the very common trap of over-cleaning your skin by using overly aggressive products. The key to optimal facial cleansing? The use of gentle, skin-friendly facial cleansers. If you wish, you can also use a facial cleansing brush to deeply unclog pores, but this is not essential and should be avoided if you have sensitive skin. There are some very good facial cleansing gels that clean the skin perfectly and unclog pores.
What facial cleanser for sensitive skin ?
If you have sensitive skin, it is all the more important to use a gentle face wash. Sensitive skin needs gentleness and therefore gentle, soothing products. There are also anti-redness face washes, ideal for soothing sensitive skin that heats up easily. Oatmeal, for example, is a very interesting ingredient for sensitive skin as it has soothing properties.
What face wash for dry skin ?
If you have dry skin that tends to be tight after cleansing, look for moisturising face washes. For example, choose a sulphate-free facial cleansing gel or, better still, a very gentle and comforting facial cleansing milk. Some cleansers are also real anti-ageing treatments, which is not negligible!
What face cleanser for oily skin ?
On the other hand, if you have oily, combination or blemished skin, you may prefer to use a purifying cleanser such as a purifying foaming gel. Be careful, however, to use a cleanser that is both cleansing and gentle. Or, you can alternate between a purifying and a moisturising face wash to avoid stripping your skin if you feel discomfort. The key is to preserve your skin's hydrolipidic film, which guarantees healthy skin! Interesting ingredients for cleansing oily skin? Zinc, for its purifying virtues (very interesting to fight against imperfections), salicylic acid, which gently exfoliates the skin, has an anti-stain action and tightens the pores, or honey, which is both purifying and nourishing.
The best face wash ?
It all depends on your skin type. Please read our article on the team's favourite face washes. You're sure to find something you like, whatever your skin type!
