What is a facial cleanser - Explore Skincare Tips

A facial cleanser is a cosmetic product meant for cleaning and cleansing the skin on the face and is used for removing makeup, sebum, debris, and other residues from the surface of the skin. This assists in the removal of dead skin and debris, which can clog the pores and lead to skin problems such as acne. Since there are so many choices out there, it can be a bit confusing trying to locate the best cleaner. 


More reasons for regular cleansing include having glowing skin. Facial cleansing clears off dead skin and enhances the cell turnover rate in your skin cells. Most cleansers also have ingredients that help the skin retain its moisture balance, ensuring you look plumper and appear younger than your actual age. Moreover, washing your face clean makes other skincare products more easily absorbable into the skin, thus reaping more of their benefits. A facial cleanser also helps in safeguarding the protective barrier as this product neutralizes the pH levels of the skin. It creates a barrier against bacteria and all those external factors that might cause damage. Including a facial cleanser in your everyday routine will give you renewed rejuvenation for a look that is healthy and full of glow for whole skin health.

Waterless Facial Cleansers

1) Cleansing Lotion

For dry skin, it is better to select lotion cleansers — they are not only gentle but also nourishing for your skin. Cleansing lotions are rich in texture, yet they do not leave the skin feeling dry as other products might do. An excellent lotion cleanser is Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Makeup Removing Lotion Cleanser. The blend comprises plant extracts and cleaning agents that help moisturize skin together with the removal of dirt. The facial cleanser does not contain other common irritants including fragrance, dyes or alcohol among other potential irritants. Your skin will be cleaned and all the contaminants washed off and your skin will still feel smooth to the touch.

2) Micellar Water

You need to use it in the morning and evenings to wash your face and rejuvenate your skin tone without causing inflammation. You may be asking yourself why you should use a gentle cleanser. It is possible to wash away the dirt off our skin and at the same time retain our skin epidermis as its whole. 

Rinseable Facial Cleansers

1) Cleansing Gel

To keep your skin clean it is advisable to begin and end the day by using a refreshing gel cleanser.

Thus, Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Gentle Clarifying Cleansing Gel reduces the ability of dirt and residue to cling to the skin. Containing plant extract and zinc, it helps cleanse and brighten the skin as well as create a soft and supple surface. This is because it has a mild working solution that is not only safe for all skin types but also very effective when added to the skincare routine. When used with warm water, it is most effective for use as a daily facial wash for smooth and clear skin. In the long run, you will realize that your skin looks and feels a lot better, free from dullness and all sorts of blemishes.

2) Gentle Cleanser

It must be taken every day, as using it as a daily facial wash can result in a better and glowing skin complexion.

3) Cleansing Face Mask
