With so many options, it can be difficult to find the ideal cleanser. Here to help you determine the perfect match for your skin type is the education team from SkinCeuticals.
Cleansing is about more than removing dirt, makeup and debris. This first skincare step is also an opportunity to address your skin’s unique needs, and choosing the ideal formulation for your main concerns helps optimize the health and appearance of your skin. You don’t have to limit yourself to just one; different cleansers in the morning and evening can target multiple issues—and help you make the most of your skincare routine.
Skin concern: Dehydration and lack of nourishment
The ideal cleanser: SkinCeuticals Replenishing Cleanser
The stress associated with today’s hectic lifestyles can take a toll on the skin, and you need to feed your skin beneficial ingredients (just as you should your body). Ceramides are at the top of the list, as this natural building block of the skin’s protective barrier is often depleted by environmental factors—and this can make minor skin issues worse. This gentle, hydrating cream-to-foam cleanser replenishes skin with a ceramide complex to fortify the skin’s barrier and help moisture stay put.
Skin concern: Reactive, compromised or post-procedure skin
The ideal cleanser: SkinCeuticals Soothing Cleanser
The last thing temperamental skin needs is more aggravation, and this cleansing foam removes impurities as it calms the skin with a soothing botanical blend of cucumber and orchid extracts. Its unique hydrating foam-to-emulsion formula features a super-gentle amino acid cleansing system. While effective enough to remove long-wear makeup, it’s also safe to use after in-office treatments, such as non-ablative laser resurfacing.
Skin concern: Acne and excess oil
The ideal cleanser: SkinCeuticals LHA Cleanser
Harsh cleansers can make breakouts worse, which is why it’s important to be smart when selecting a cleanser for oily and blemish-prone skin. This gel-based cleanser gently exfoliates and clarifies pores with a blend of lipo-hydroxy, alpha-hydroxy and salicylic acids, in turn leaving skin clean without feeling dry, tight or uncomfortable.
Skin concern: Uneven tone and discoloration
The ideal cleanser: SkinCeuticals Simply Clean
Gentle exfoliation is key for maintaining an even, radiant complexion, and this potent gel cleanser effectively removes dirt, excess oil, and waterproof makeup. Featuring an amino acid cleansing system that won’t over-dry the skin, hydrating glycerin, soothing chamomile and aloe extracts, refreshing orange oil and exfoliating citric and sulfonic acid, it’s ideal for daily use.
Skin concern: Age-related dryness
The ideal cleanser: Gentle Cleanser
It becomes more difficult for the skin to hold on to moisture over time, but this mild cream cleanser gives aging skin a helping hand. With a gentle coconut oil-based cleansing agent it hydrates as it removes impurities and long-wear makeup. Moisture-binding glycerin, skin-softening allantoin and stimulating orange oil leave skin feeling clean and comfortable.
Skin concern: Rough texture and dullness
The ideal cleanser: Purifying Cleanser
This mild foaming gel cleanser simultaneously cleanses, refines and conditions the skin thanks to exfoliating glycolic acid and hydrating glycerin. It gently improves surface texture and reveals a radiant complexion as it melts away dirt.
