Cleanser Pro Tips

The most effective skincare rituals start with a targeted facial cleanser. Discover all the pro tips and techniques on how to get the most out of your cleanser, from choosing a texture that’s right for your skin type, to the ingredients and actives that best suit your skin’s needs. 

Cleansing is the most important step in your skincare ritual, but often the most overlooked. Your complexion faces many environmental stressors each day, whether that’s from makeup, pollution, or general accumulation of debris and toxins. Your daily facial cleanser cleans and washes away debris, excess oil, and dead skin cells leaving your complexion clearer and hydrated. For oily and combination skin, cleansers help clear any excess sebum, purifying and balancing and supporting any acne-fighting treatments. For all skin types but especially dry, facial cleansers replenish vital hydration, managing the skin’s pH levels, and strengthening the skin’s barrier to retain healthy moisture levels.

Cleansing twice daily is vital for optimal skin health. Your morning facial cleanse will clear away any product residue from your evening ritual, balancing any excess oils, and will also revitalize your complexion, prepping it for your daytime products. Your nighttime facial cleanse is one of the best things you can do for skin, particularly for anti-aging, as it cleanses any pollution, makeup, debris, and potential free radicals that can cause aging damage to the skin. It helps your skin prepare for overnight repair with a clean, clear, and supported complexion. Choose from foaming, oil, cream, or milk cleansers for perfectly purified and prepped skin, ready for your next skincare steps.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cleansers

What do facial cleansers do?

"Facial cleansers refresh your complexion and wash away debris, makeup, dead skin cells, excess oil, and pollutants without stripping your skin. Facial cleansers provide a clean slate for all products applied after, and should be used in the morning and at night," says Steph Scalet, Global Aesthetics Lead.

Is face wash a cleanser?

"Yes, face wash is the same as a skin cleanser. There are different types of skin cleanser, such as: gel, milk, cream, or powder. A balanced cleanser or face wash will leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed without irritation," says Steph Scalet, Global Aesthetics Lead.

Do you need a cleanser and a face wash?

"If you're unclear what a facial cleanser is, think of it like a face wash—it's basically the same thing. If you have a favorite cleanser or face wash, that's all you need. But, you can also personalize your cleansing, so try a gel cleanser in the morning and a cream cleanser at night, or swap cleansers in summer and winter," says Steph Scalet, Global Aesthetics Lead.

Can you use a hydrating cleanser for combination skin?

"All skin types can benefit from hydrating cleansers. You can have combination skin and still lack water or moisture, so the best combination skin cleanser will be a hydrating cleanser that offers gentle exfoliation to balance excess oil," says Steph Scalet, Global Aesthetics Lead.

Which is better foam or gel cleanser?

"The best skin cleanser for one person may be different for another. If you're looking to nourish and condition while cleansing, milks or creams are a great choice. Gel and foaming cleansers can offer deep cleansing to balance and revitalize skin," says Steph Scalet, Global Aesthetics Lead.

What type of face cleanser should I use?

"Choosing a skin cleanser that's right for you is all down to what you want it to target. Whether breakouts, oil-balancing, sensitivity, hydration, aging, or hyperpigmentation, choose a targeted cleanser to support your skin concerns, and follow up with a similar skincare ritual for all the benefits," says Steph Scalet, Global Aesthetics Lead.

What is gel cleanser used for?

"Gel skin cleansers offer a deep cleansing action while refreshing and balancing skin. Most skin types can benefit from a gel cleanser, depending on what it's targeting. Some gel formulas may foam when water is added to enhance the cleansing and balancing experience," says Steph Scalet, Global Aesthetics Lead.
