A healthy skin is a clean skin, so regularly cleanse your skin with a compatible facial cleanser. A good cleanser removes dirt, excess oil, and germs, while being gentle on the skin. When choosing a cleanser, consider your type of skin and be extra critical.
Choosing the correct cleanser for your skin type is extremely important since there are a variety of skin types that can be appropriate for specific skin cleansers as well. Using the wrong type of cleanser for the wrong skin type could cause you more harm than good.
Among the most common skin types are oily or dry skin, for which varying levels also apply, depending on the secretions of the skin’s sebaceous glands.
When in doubt about determining your skin type and what cleansers to use, you should seek the advise of a Dermalogica Skin Therapist to help make you feel more confident about the cleansing regimen you are going to pursue.
TIP: Do not over-wash your skin because it will do your skin more harm than good. At the most, wash your face twice—morning and night. Some people prefer to wash with only lukewarm water in the morning, and use cleanser at night. Again, whether you omit the cleanser from your morning routine is an issue of preference.
