We all desire beautiful skin. But did you know that to get beautiful skin, we need to first take care of our skin health? That’s why it’s important to know what’s good and bad for your skin when it comes to choosing a facial cleanser. Here are a few tips to help you with that:
Avoid soap and foam
The more foam a cleanser produces, the better it cleans. But is that really good?
A cleanser that produces a lot of foam usually has a high soap content, which can strip your skin of its natural oils. Due to its high pH value, soap can also disrupt your skin’s natural barrier function, leaving your skin dry and flaky.
Heavily scented cleansers are a no-no
We all love smelling great, don’t we? But unfortunately, heavily scented skincare products may cause negative skin reactions. That’s because the ‘fragrance’ you love could contain multiple scent additives, each having the potential to trigger an allergic reaction especially to those with sensitive skin.
Opt for a gentle cleanser
Using a cleanser that’s too harsh on the skin can impair your skin’s natural barrier function, allowing external factors such as bacteria and irritants to enter the skin more easily. Instead, use a gentle cleanser like Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser to maintain your skin’s natural barrier function.
