Gentle Cleansers for dry skin

Gentle Cleansers for dry skin.

If the goal is to achieve smooth, glass-like, soft skin, this type of skin  will surely make you work for it and hard.

Keeping it hydrated, regularly exfoliating  and applying sunscreen to further protect it,  are all very important steps. But what about keeping it well cleansed without causing further dryness?

When it comes to skincare regime, cleansing your skin is a very important step, as it helps extract excess oils from your pores, unclogging them  and removes dead skin cells impurities. This further reduces the risk of breakouts and prevents inflammations from forming.

It can be hard however  for dry -skin sufferers to find a cleanser that doesn’t strip too much of the natural oils off.


Identify WHY your skin is dry



Is your dryness a condition or the result of a product trial gone wrong? If it’s your  actual skin type, here are common reasons for dry skin exacerbations:


  • Over exfoliating or over cleansing
  • Seasonal changes ,especially  during  Autumn and  Winter months
  • Showering with very hot water or taking frequent hot baths
  • Using central heating


Which takes us back to what ingredients should one with dry skin look for in a gentle cleanser ;  it’s crucial for this type of  skin to be kept moisturised; a gentle, non-pore clogging, cream-based cleanser  would make a great difference , for example.
