You may be asking yourself what is a facial cleanser?’’ What are its uses?’ Well, you will have answers to all your questions. To begin with, our faces are the most exposed part of our bodies. The face comes into contact with the polluted environment which makes some pollutants to stick on the skin for long. This is why one needs to use a facial cleanser. Facial cleansers are essential in clearing dirt, oils and make up from our faces.
You may also be wondering why one would use a facial cleanser instead of using soap to clean the skin. Instead of using soap, a facial cleanser is preferred because the PH of the cleanser is similar to that of our skin. The cleanser cleans the skin without getting rid of the essential moisture required to keep the skin from being dry. The ordinary soap as much as it cleanses it gets rid of the moisture leaving the skin dry.
Facial cleansers come in many forms. Some come in form of bar soaps, gels or liquid form. The kind of cleanser one uses depends on their tastes and preference. However, cream facial cleansers are preferred if one’s skin is dry. For oily skins, it is recommendable to use the gel kind of cleansers.
A best facial cleanser has ingredients that help in moisturizing the skin. It is also good if it has antioxidants that help rejuvenate the skin and also antibacterial properties to help in effective killing of germs. The kind of cleanser one uses varies with the kind of skin one has. However, it is important to avoid cleansers having alcohol as one of its ingredients. This is because alcohol tends to make the skin dry which is disadvantageous to the skin. For this reason organic cleansers are the best choice since they do not contain harmful substances but contains the necessary elements for the proper development of your skin.
The facial cleansers work best when they are used both in the morning before your skin is exposed to the many pollutants and also in the evening so that as you rest your skin does not have dirt hence it also breathes.
The benefits of using cleansers are numerous but just to mention a few; they include softening the skin’s texture. In addition to this, cleansers help in reducing dryness of the skin and also help reduce the rate of forming wrinkles. Facial cleansers are also essential in maintaining skin balance. They balance the skin depending on the weather, for instance if it is during the hot weather, they ensure the skin is moisturized properly and also help decrease the production of oil.
The good thing is that they can be bought without prescription and are found in stores near you and you have quite a wide variety to choose from.
