6 Benefits of Using a Facial Cleanser Regularly

A facial cleanser is the first step in every at-home skin care regimen. In addition to removing dirt, dead skin cells, and other unwanted surface debris, a properly formulated facial cleanser can prime your skin for a daily skincare routine, acne treatment, and other skin care products.

Many visible signs of skin aging, such as wrinkles, dullness, and fine lines, are caused by environmental aggressors — but the good news is, you can fight back! By following the right skin-care routine, and ensuring proper facial cleansing, you can enhance the appearance of your skin and improve its: 

  • Firmness
  • Texture 
  • Long-term health 
  • Elasticity 

Not sure which skin care regimen is right for you? Whether you are looking for an at-home acne treatment, or anti-aging skin care products, consulting with a Kelowna skin care specialist will ensure that you follow a skin care regimen that perfectly suits your needs.

What is a Facial Cleanser and What Are the Benefits Of Using Such a Skin Care Product? 

A facial cleanser is a skin care product that is designed to remove dead skin cells, oil, dirt, makeup, and other pollutants from the skin, helping to keep your pores clear and prevent skin conditions such as acne. 

However, finding the best type of cleanser for you can be hard, because there are so many options! Understanding the differences between the skin care products will help you choose the best one for your skin. 

3 Types of Facial Cleansers

  1. Gel Cleansers: This is a facial cleanser with a gel-like consistency. Many of these have deep-cleaning and exfoliating properties, making them ideal for oily, acne-prone skin.

  2. Cream Cleansers: Cream cleansers are usually thicker and they can be very moisturizing. They will cleanse your skin without stripping it of any of its natural oils, making it perfect for people with dry or sensitive skin. 

  3. Foam cleansers: These lightweight skin care products create a foamy lather when dispensed from a pump package. They remove excess oil as effectively as gel cleansers and are great for combination skin. 

How Do Facial Cleansers Work? 

Facial cleansers contain detergents called ‘surfactants’ which work to remove unwanted substances and particles from the outermost layer of skin. These surfactants, which vary in strength and effectiveness depending on your skin care product, work by attracting oil, makeup, dirt, and debris, so that they can be rinsed away more easily. 

Advanced Facial Cleansers 

Regular facial cleansers remove bacteria, debris, and excess oil. However, a number of cleansers go the extra mile to address common skin problems, such as acne, with additional ingredients. 

  • Acne cleansers: Some cleansers for acne-prone skin are simply devoid of irritating ingredients and oils. However, others, including at home acne treatments, deal with ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid, to improve the appearance of your skin.

  • Exfoliating cleansers: Tiny particles are sometimes added to facial cleansers to mechanically slough off dead skin cells. These are ideal to use 1-2 times a week and overuse should be avoided as it could dry out your skin.

Benefits of Using a Facial Cleanser Regularly 

Using the right facial cleanser daily can have great benefits for your appearance and skin health. In fact, incorporating this into your daily skin care routine will:

  • Clear up any build up for healthier and smoother skin 
  • Keep your skin hydrated, soft, supple, and youthful-looking 
  • Sweep away dry and dead skin cells, revealing a fresh layer of skin for a natural glow 
  • Stimulate blood circulation, boosting blood flow to your face for glowing skin 
  • Make your skin look younger and help fight any signs of aging
