How To Cleanse Your Skin Based On Your Skin Type

What your skin type has to say

We all know that cleansing is important: gets rid of pollution debris, dead cells, and makeup residue that want to take up residence on your face. If you don’t cleanse, you get issues like breakouts, hyperpigmentation, and premature aging— no one wants that! Double cleansing is particularly effective against these concerns. Its combination of water- and cream-based components purify and nurture your skin in depth and prep it to absorb other products.

Are Active Skincare Cleansers worth the hype?

Active Skincare Cleansers are, definitely, the way to go. Unlike common cosmetic cleansers, they aren’t just foamy, nice-smelling concoctions that leave you hoping for the best. Instead, Active Skincare Cleansers are therapeutic, use research to target specific concerns, and contain active ingredients (like lactic acid and salicylic acid) that truly clarify and treat your skin by interacting with it at the biological level.

But how do you use them?

Apply a small amount (think pea-sized) on your scrubbed-clean hands, get it to lather, and work
it into your dampened skin with an upward-moving, circular, gentle massage. Focus on pesky spots— example: T-Zone— and, if your cleanser is on the astringent side, avoid the sensitive areas around the lips and eyes.

Let your skin choose

Just like different people have different tastes in nutrition, relationships, and movie genres, different skin types have different needs! Are you investing in the Cleanser yours asks for? Use this guide to find the best Active Skincare Cleanser for your skin type and goals. It’s like “Choose your own adventure”, with your complexion doing the choosing!

For the Sensitive ones

If your skin is prone to irritation and redness, go for the Gentle Clean Cleanser by Aspect. Its
ultra-gentle formulation is free of aggressive ingredients like sulphates. Instead, you’ll find soothing, protective hydration in its mix of Canadian Willow Herb, Vegetable Glycerine, and Organic Hydrofoam. Your sensitive skin will be ecstatic!

For Combination Skin (disorienting!)

When your skin type is a combination of others’ positive and negative traits, it’s hard to decide
what Cleanser to use. Benefit Clean by Cosmedix is your perfect choice. It’s efficient at removing daily pollution and makeup, and— thanks to its main active ingredients, Australian Sandalwood Oil and Herbal Amaranth— it handles the concerns of oily and dry skin with equal poise. Bonus: its Grapefruit Oil will actually perk up your mood.

For the Dry Skin types

Are you worried about your Cleanser stripping your already bone-dry skin of its precious moisture? Purity Solution Oil by Cosmedix is exactly what you need. Its Neem Extract removes all accumulated impurities, while its fruit and seed Oils replenish your skin’s nutrients. You’ll get a fabulous non-greasy, dewy glow.

For extra-Oily Skin

Thanks to its all-powerful Salicylic Acid, the Purity Detox Scrub by Cosmedix is an expert at treating your typical oily skin problems: dead skin cells, excess sebum, breakouts, and open pores. Jojoba Beads and Yellow Corn Kernel Meal lend their exfoliating and antioxidant talents to create an extraordinarily smooth and youthful complexion.

For Challenging Skin

If your skin constantly challenges you with hyperpigmentation, congestion, oiliness— or all three!—, Purastat 5 by Aspect is a great ally to have in your corner. It contains both soothing and astringent Botanical Complexes as well as fruit acids (like lactic acid) that exfoliate and help younger skin grow. An all-around winner!

The right fit for All Skin Types

Purity Clean is gentle, Purity Clean is kind to all skin types. Cosmedix’ Active Cleanser will achieve all your radiant complexion goals, even if your skin is congested, photodamaged, or has acne scars. A blend of salicylic acid, tea tree oil, aloe vera, and L-lactic acid make it a super balanced choice for both AM and PM. Skins everywhere, get ready for that goodness!
