HOME / BEAUTY / Face to Face: Choose the Best Facial Cleanser Based on Your Skin Type

With the many skin types that people have, it can be hard to find beauty products that are best suited for you, especially for your face. Is your face oily, dry, combination, or sensitive? Choosing the wrong one could result in breakouts and rashes, so it can be challenging to know which facial skin care product to use.

 

Learn how to take care of your face and you will thank yourself in the future. Whatever type of skin you have, there’s a face care product that’s right for you. Here’s our guide to help you out.

 

IF YOUR SKIN IS OILY…

…then you should learn to regulate oil production by providing your skin with moisture and hydration. Neutrogena’s Deep Clean Acne Foaming Cleanser is clinically proven to remove dirt and impurities like sebum and dead skin cells without drying out your skin.

THE TWO SECRET INGREDIENTS

The Neutrogena Deep Clean Acne Foaming Cleanser uses two main ingredients in their cleanser — glycerin and IPMP. This pure glycerin foam cleanser is infused with isopropyl methylphenol for a powerful combination against bacterial growth, leaving you with nourished skin that glows.

 

IF YOUR SKIN IS DRY…

…then find a product that gives your face the moisture that it needs. Providing enough moisture reduces skin problems and the appearance of blemishes. This is key in looking young and wrinkle-free. Give The Face Shop’s Herb Day Foaming Cleanser a try and see amazing results!

A SOLUTION TO DRY SKIN?

The Face Shop specializes in skin care. Their Herb Day Foaming Cleanser comes in different variants, infused with natural ingredients depending on the skin problem you want to solve. Choose Acerola to brighten dull skin, Aloe Vera to hydrate dry skin, Mung Bean to nourish troubled skin, or Peach to smoothen rough skin.

 

IF YOUR SKIN IS SENSITIVE…

….you should choose a cleanser that is specially formulated without harsh chemicals that can harm your skin. Discomfort, redness, and clogging of pores are common problems if unsuitable products are used. Apply only the mildest on your skin with Kiehl’s Centella Sensitive Facial Cleanser. It’s dermatologically-tested to soothe and provide comfort that your sensitive skin needs.

WHAT IS CENTELLA?

The key ingredient in Kiehl’s cleanser is known as Centella which is derived from the medical plant Centella Asiatica. It has skin-soothing properties that are gentle on the face, leaving it calm and cleansed.

 

IF YOUR SKIN IS A COMBINATION…

…you need to know which parts of your face are oily and which parts are dry. Your T-zone may be oilier because of concentrated oil glands, while your cheeks and chin may appear rough because of dead skin cells. Use a product that promotes skin cell regeneration to get clearer and shine-free skin. Human Nature’s Balancing Facial Wash and Face Toner work great for combination type skin.

The secret ingredient in Human Nature’s cleanser and toner is “elemi” and its effective collagen-building elements help in toning and firming your skin.  Elemi, locally known as Pili, can only be found in the Philippines which makes it a Proudly Pinoy ingredient.
