Starting the day off with your skincare routine sets your skin up for the rest of the day. Face wash plays an important role in your routine, being the first step in many. The right cleanser will clean your face of any dirt and grime build-up while hydrating and nourishing it. Knowing your skin type and finding a cleanser that suits you is the best way to get on the road to perfect, glowing skin.
Here are 8 types of face wash that do it all so well…
The deeply hydrating formula made with Water Bank Technology has everything you could want in a face wash. The creamy texture exfoliates and moisturises while cleansing the face of any build-up. The Aqua-Elastic network system makes it very hydrating and nourishing to the skin. It is also pH balanced, paraben, silicone and phthalate-free, and the brand is vegan and cruelty-free, making it one of the best face washes for all skin types for many reasons.
Although everyone can benefit from this facial foam from L’Oreal Paris, the product is designed to cater to people in their thirties who are trying to fight the fine lines and wrinkles that first begin to appear at this age. The procollagen C and Vitamin E rich foam are exactly what you need to plump up and smoothen your skin’s surface.
This range of face washes from Nykaa Naturals has four variants – papaya and amla, lavender and chamomile, haldi and chandan and cucumber and aloe vera, each addressing different skin concerns. The cucumber and aloe vera variant is a great overall cleanser for all skin types. The cucumber provides detoxing properties from the folic acid and gentle hydration, while the aloe vera is filled with antibacterial properties that soothe blemishes, acne and inflammation.
Love K-beauty products? Then you’ll surely be a fan of The Face Shop’s foaming cleansers. Formulated with aloe vera and green tea, it cleanses the skin mildly without stripping it of its natural moisture. The water-rich aloe vera naturally hydrates, and the anti-inflammatory properties of green tea will give you smooth, glowing skin.
The 9To5 range from Lakme is widely popular, and the same can be said about this face wash. What stands out about this product is the microcrystalline beads that exfoliate the skin without being too harsh. Infused with lemon for antioxidants, menthol for its cooling properties, and Vitamin C for a fresh glow, this type of face wash is a must-have in your morning routine.
A brand that checks all the green boxes, Plum’s cleansing lotion is a must-try! Made for dry or sensitive skin, it is a moisturising formula that soothes from within. It contains both aloe vera juice and sunflower seed oil, two ingredients known for their hydrating qualities. The sunflower seed oil also dissolves the grime and dirt from your skin, making this lotion an effective cleanser too.
Made for oily skin, Mamaearth’s face wash is a solution for many skin problems. The activated charcoal draws out impurities, dirt and oil. The added clay removes oil and dirt from the pores cleaning it from within. And to slough off dead cells and rejuvenate your skin, there’s no better ingredient than coffee. This face wash is also toxin and cruelty-free.
This foam cleanser is worthy of mention in this list of types of facial cleansers because of the patented Illumeskin WhiteningTM Complex it is formulated with. It not only cleans the skin but also protects it from UV damage, stimulates the production of collagen and blocks melanin production. This means that the formula illuminates and plumps up the skin to give you vibrant and glowing skin.
