In today’s tumultuous world, pollution isn’t anything new. However, many still haven’t realized that pollutants also double up as facial irritants and aggressors. These can damage the skin surface and lead to other complications due to prolonged exposure. Pollutants aren’t the only cause of face and skin problems. Ageing, poor food habits, disrupted sleep patterns are other reasons why your face is losing the radiance it had. With that said, one cannot overlook the significance of using skincare products like facial cleansers and exfoliators to get rid of dead cells harboring the surface.

What does a facial cleanser do?

The first skincare product you need to have your eyes on is a facial cleanser. Cleansers can do almost everything your damaged skin needs. From hydrating the surface to clearing the skin for makeup, a cleanser is a magic essential your skincare kit must contain. Here is a list of things your skin can get better with on using a cleanser,

  • Skin smoothening

If you crave acne-free and smooth skin, the least you will need is a skin cleanser. You will find several types of cleansers to tailor specific needs. For instance, acne cleansers get rid of acne and acne marks and are devoid of chemicals that can irritate acne and cause further complications.

  • Remove dirt and dead cells

Though exfoliators are exclusively used to remove dead skin cells, the exfoliation starts with using a cleanser. It’s because facial cleansers sort the dead cells from the healthy surface by creating a film barrier, thereby letting the dead cells come off after the wash.

  • Anti-ageing property

Today, many women face early ageing symptoms, which affect the face and create wrinkles and lines on the surface. According to a recent survey, Aussie women tend to age earlier (up to 20 years earlier) than women in the US. Though medical treatments and skin modifications are the best resorts, everyday cleansing can profoundly impact the effects of such treatments.

Choosing a Facial Cleanser

Not every facial cleanser is for you. Some can work wonders, while others can make things messy. To ensure not end up in the wrong choice, here are some things to remember while you shop for a facial cleanser,


The first factor to consider while buying a facial cleanser is the skin type. Almost all cleansers come tailored for specific skin types (with unique ingredients). So, to begin with, identify your skin type if you aren’t aware of it. For instance, if your skin has more pores and seems glossy, your skin type is oily. On the flip side, if your skin often suffers from moisture deprivation and is flaky, you will need a dry skin based cleanser.


Facial cleansers come in several forms, types and textures. Gel cleansers are common today and work best on oily skin types. They unclog pores and help in acne removal when used regularly. On the flip side, foam cleansers best shit people with combination skin types (both oily and dry) as they remove excess oil and hydrate the skin, making the surface plump.


If your skin is intensively sensitive, there are chances for you to develop allergies or incompatibility to several skin products or while experimenting with a new cleanser. On that note, here is a list of tips to follow.

  • Always choose fragrance-free cleansers. These are devoid of strong chemicals and other irritants, thus offering a safe alternative.

  • Cream cleansers are the best to use if your skin is mild or excessively sensitive. Cream cleansers do not eliminate natural oils and simultaneously hydrate the skin.

  • Lastly, have an eye on the ingredients label to watch out for chemicals of higher grade irritation and hypersensitivity.
