Face Wash For Sensitive Skin

Face Wash For Sensitive Skin

The skin is the biggest organ in the human body. And just as we brush our teeth each morning, we must cleanse our skin. One big difference? Just about any toothpaste will do the trick for your teeth, but the same rule doesn’t apply to skin cleanser. The skin is constantly exposed to pollutants and dehydrating elements. Finding the right cleanser can be frustrating, time-consuming, and, at times, expensive. While some find that certain cleansers irritate or dry their skin, others discover new blemishes and increased oiliness. Trial and error, though an effective plan of action, is usually impractical. On the other hand, taking the advice of a sales associate can be a gamble; just as waiters default to the most expensive wine when you don’t specify, sales associates may just show you the most expensive product. Is there any method to the madness? After testing 112 different cleansers of varying brands and ingredients, we’ve found eight winning products that will leave your skin feeling clean and luxurious after every wash. As every skin type is unique, testing was conducted around eight distinct categories, tailored to individual skin types, issues, and desires. Whether you’re looking for a good exfoliating cleanser or a cure to ceaseless blemishes, one of these eight products is sure to do the trick. Not to mention, each of the winning cleansers is easy to find online or in a local drugstore. No need to travel to the Amazon Rainforest or the Dead Sea to get the ingredients for the clear complexion you desire.

“This cleanser is well suited for dry to sensitive skin but can be beneficial for all skin types — even oily and acne-prone skin. The product is surfactant-free and paraben-free to reduce dryness or irritation, leaving skin feeling smooth after cleansing,” says Dr. Jessica Weiser. “The milky consistency contains glycerin to prevent skin from drying, yet it is effective enough to remove debris and makeup from the skin’s surface.”

Paula Begoun of Paula’s Choice praises this product as an outstanding option for those with normal to dry skin, because it’s gentle, soothing and rinses clean. That little bit of artificial fragrance keeps her from making this a top recommendation for those with sensitive skin, but many users with sensitive skin say they love this product. They report that it reduces redness, soothes irritation, gently moisturizes and may even help reduce breakouts. A few are surprised that it doesn’t foam up, but they adapt to the creamy, lotion-like consistency quickly, and the mild cucumber-y scent get lots of positive comments. Like the other gentle face washes in this section, you may need a separate cleanser or a good sponge to remove tough makeup.

Jane Basson April 3rd 2016 I don’t understand why Cetaphil appears on this list, when just the week before there was an article called “SLS, The Known Irritant in your Skincare” all about avoiding sodium lauryl sulphate in skincare, how it thins the skin and increases permeability, etc. etc. Cetaphil has SLS as one of its main ingredients – seems to be very inconsistent advice to say the least! Kristiane Worsdell March 20th 2016 Be warned, if this bothers you, Cetaphil is packed full of parabens. Daniela Pedroza September 26th 2015 I’d recommend Monsia. Sophie hutton April 26th 2015 Thanks for the Cetaphil recommendation- it’s working really well for my normally very imbalanced skin!! Maria dalton February 24th 2015 Monsia makes the best in my opinion. Coconut Monkey June 24th 2013 Another really good gentle cleanser is Dermalogica Essential Cleansing Solution. Fabulous for dry sensitive skin. I keep going back to it.

“I am a fan of this classic cleanser because it’s not too harsh and will not dry out the skin. It doesn’t have reactive ingredients in it so even the most sensitive skin types can use it,” says aesthetician, Melanie Simon whose clients include Vanessa Williams. “Aggressive cleansers with acidic ingredients, like salicylic acid, strip the epidermis which makes the skin look dull. Cetaphil doesn’t strip the top layer of the skin which reflects light and makes us appear more youthful.”
