The Benefits of Using a Creamy, Gentle Cleanser for Your Skin


Sometimes, "squeaky-clean" just isn't going to cut it - especially when it comes to the skin on your face!  Contrary to the skincare tips of the past, your natural skin oil isn't your enemy. It's there to protect the skin barrier and keep it moisturised. Sometimes, too much of a good thing can have a negative effect, like having too much oil clogging your skin. But here's the thing, you don't want to eradicate it, you just need to moderate it. To keep your skin at it's optimal balanced state, you'd want to choose a product that effectively removes dirt and impurities without stripping your skin of its natural oils. That's where a creamy gentle cleanser comes in. Unlike harsher cleansers that can leave your skin feeling tight and dry, a creamy gentle cleanser can provide a number of benefits for your skin. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider using one:

  1. Gently Cleanses Without Stripping Your Skin

A creamy gentle cleanser is formulated to be mild and gentle on your skin, which means it won't strip your skin of its natural oils. This is especially important if you have dry or sensitive skin, which can easily become irritated by harsher cleansers. In fact, stripping the skin can trigger it to then over-product oil to compensate for the dryness. By using a creamy gentle cleanser, you can effectively remove dirt, oil, and makeup without compromising your skin's natural moisture balance.

  1. Provides Nourishment and Hydration

Creamy cleansers are usually formulated with ingredients that can provide nourishment and hydration to your skin. For example, some cleansers contain glycerin, which is a powerful humectant that can attract and retain moisture in your skin. Ohter ingredients like oils, botanical actives, aloe vera and papaya extract can help soothe and calm your skin. By using a cleanser that provides nourishment and hydration, you can make the most of your first skincare step to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy.

  1. Prepares Your Skin for Other Skincare Products

Using a creamy gentle cleanser can also help prepare your skin for other skincare products in your routine. When your skin is clean not stripped and still hydrated, it's better able to absorb the active ingredients in your other skincare products. This helps you can maximize the benefits of your entire skincare routine.


Bottomline, don't over-cleanse! You want clean, healthy skin, not stripped skin. Cleansing is the first step in your skincare routine, and arguably the most important one, because it sets the foundation for the rest of your products.
