Cleaning is the first and most important step in your daily skin care routine, as it removes all impurities that remain on your skin. While all facial cleansers are formulated to remove makeup and dirt, not every cleanser works the same for every skin type. To avoid unwanted irritation or breakouts, it is important that you choose the right facial cleanser for your skin type.
Not sure what skin type you have? Go back to Chapter 13 for the full breakdown. Once you've cleared this up, here's a guide to choosing the ideal facial cleanser for dry, combination, oily, acne-prone, or sensitive skin:
What to look for: a detergent with a creamy texture
Dry skin is prone to tension, dry spots or even redness. If you choose a facial cleanser, choose a cream-based one to give your skin the much-needed moisture. Avoid foaming cleansers or soaps, as they can be hard on your skin and tend to strip away the moisture from your skin, leaving you with an even drier skin.
LANEIGE & # 39; s Moist Cream Cleanser is not drying and therefore perfect for dry skin. It has a creamy texture that doesn't make your skin feel tight or dry after cleansing. The Moist Cream Cleanser also removes excess sebum, makeup and dirt and grime for a day without irritating the skin.
What to look for: a gel cleaner
Do not confuse combination skin with oily skin, as combination skin is a mixture of dry and oily skin. The dry areas are usually around the cheeks, while the more oily areas include the forehead, nose and chin. If you have combination skin, look for a cleanser that a) removes excess sebum, especially in your T-zone area, and b) nourishes the dry areas of your face that are usually the cheeks.
Combination skin will love LAGOM's Cellup Gel To Water CleanserDouble texture. This cleaner removes dirt and excess oil and at the same time maintains the oil-water balance of the skin. The Cellup Gel to Water Cleanser is formulated with Aqualica, which improves the skin's ability to store moisture.
What to look out for: a light, foaming cleaner
If you have acne-prone skin, your skin is likely to be oily. To tame your breakouts, a foaming cleanser that feels light on the skin is ideal. Focus on keeping your pores free of dirt, as clogged pores cause dead skin cells to become trapped in your skin, leading to blackheads, whiteheads, and breakouts.

What to look for: a soothing cleaning agent without aggressive ingredients
Sensitive skin is susceptible to reactions and can be aggravated by external stress factors. Therefore, it is important to include skin care products in your routine that are gentle. Choose a cleanser that contains natural ingredients and is fragrance-free to reduce the likelihood of your skin responding.
