What’s the Right Cleanser for My Skin Type?
Clean skin is the foundation of clear, healthy skin. It’s that simple. If you already wash your face at least every night and never skimp on makeup removal, you’re on your way. But how to choose the right cleanser for your skin type? We’ve broken it down with clean picks we think you’ll love as much as we do—no matter your skin type or concern.
For oily skin: Dr. Alkaitis Organic Purifying Facial Cleanser
This gel cleanser is chock full of calming and soothing ingredients. Aloe vera helps take down any redness, while chamomile works to tighten and decrease the appearance of pores—a common concern for the oily-skinned among us. Seaweed, a powerful antioxidant ingredient, not only fortifies the skin but is also an effective ingredient for preventing acne and reducing inflammation.
For dry skin: Josh Rosebrook Complete Moisture Cleanse
This creamy cleanser fortifies dry skin leaving it hydrated, and never, ever stripped. It features honey, which is, in fact, a potent hydrating agent, soothing aloe vera, and nourishing argan oil. Broccoli seed oil (an of-the-moment ingredient) gives this cleanser an antioxidant punch and helps protect skin from environmental damage.
For combination skin: Ursa Major Fantastic Face Wash
This herbal, citrusy cleanser is refreshing and seriously cleansing, but not drying. It removes the grit, grime, and dirt you want to rinse off, and feeds the skin a clarifying and brightening cocktail of antioxidant, brightening lemon peel extract, antiseptic lavender, good-for-everyone and super-soothing aloe vera, and more.
For sensitive skin: Pai Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser
A luxe milky cream, this cleanser is a sensorial joy to use—and even the most sensitive skin types don’t have to worry about having a reaction. Camellia seed oil—a hero ingredient in this product—works to hydrate, while shea butter nourishes and fights inflammation. Omegas 6 & 9 and Vitamin E help strengthen the skin’s barrier and work as a health booster for your complexion.
For anti-aging: True Botanicals RENEW Hydrating Cleanser
This milky gel cleanser is filled with age-busting, science-backed ingredients. Antioxidant green tea leaf extract protects against damage from the sun and pollution and improves skin tone. Camellia seed oil is super-hydrating—and hydrated skin looks and feels younger. Neroli oil improves the appearance of scars and leaves skin glowing.
