Keeping your skin clean is the first step to ensure you have good healthy skin. Each skin type brings its fair share of problems, so I've listed a few of my favorites that target the needs of each skin type, or condition.
Caudalie Gentle Cleanser
This cleanser is ideal for normal to combination skin. With one press of the pump, the liquid transforms into a mousse that leaves the skin feeling soft and clean. This product contains polyphenols, which are extracted and stabilized from grape seeds. This process was first introduced and patented into the cosmetic world by Caudalie. Research has shown that polypenols are a powerful antioxidant. They help protect the skin from harmful environmental influences called free radicals, which contributes to 80 percent of our skin's aging. Product price $10 - $26.00 Available at Sephora.
Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser
Here is an ideal cleanser that won't strip your skin and is suitable for all skin types. This one-step cleanser will remove makeup and dirt from your skin; It's formulated to unclog pores but gentle enough to use around the eye area. However, if you like a cleanser that foams, this creme cleanser is not for you. Philosophy focuses on the principles of health and wellness, and each product displays a personal belief that speaks to that. Product price $10.00 - $40.00 Available at Philosophy, major department stores and Sephora.
Shiseido Benefiance Creamy Cleansing foam
This product will cleanse and remove makeup for women with normal to very dry skin. The tiny granules contain a highly effective humectant called bio hyaluronic, which helps draw moisture from the atmosphere to the skin. The more moisture your skin can retain the better chance you have at keeping those fine lines at bay. Benefiance is a great cleanser to switch to during the winter months when your skin is experiencing surface dehydration. Product price $34.00 Available at Shiseido, major department stores and Sephora.
Peter Thomas Roth Beta Hydroxy 2% Acne Wash
This is a great deep-cleaning cleanser for oily skin. It doesn't over-dry the skin but leaves it feeling refreshingly clean. Salicylic acid deep cleanses pores, clearing up whiteheads, blackheads and acne blemishes. Peter Thomas Roth is a clinical line devoted to bringing you skincare with effective ingredient levels. Product price $35.00 Available at PTR, Sephora and Ulta.
