Which face cleanser is the best for my skin?
Depending on your skin type, it’s best to choose a different facial cleanser.
For people with sensitive skin, choosing a gentle cleanser like a cream cleanser or cleansing water ensures that the skin barrier isn’t disrupted. Because dryness and sensitivity often go hand in hand, it’s important to make sure you’re not stripping moisture from your skin when cleansing. Cream cleansers also provide a soothing texture to calm skin after a day of makeup or external elements.
For a gentle cleansing water, try our Eau Micellaire Douceur Cleansing Water
For a soothing cream cleanser, try our Galatée Confort Rich Creamy Cleanser
If you have oily skin, a foaming face cleanser like Lancôme's Clarifique Cleansing Foam will wash away excess oil and leave the skin feeling clean and fresh, without stripping your skin of all its moisture. A facial cleanser that includes salicylic acid, or a beta-hydroxy acid, is also beneficial for oily skin as this ingredient helps lightly exfoliate the skin and prevent clogged pores due to excess oil.
If you have combination skin, you likely experience dryness in some areas and oiliness in others. An oil-in-gel cleanser is a great choice to help cleanse away impurities and excess sebum without further drying the skin. For a sumptuous gel that transforms into a silky oil, try Absolue Oil-In-Gel Face Cleanser.
What is the best facial cleanser for removing makeup?
While cleansing is an essential step in any skincare routine, and many foam or cream cleansers are reasonably effective in removing face makeup, it’s often hard to completely remove all residue without a dedicated makeup remover. A non-oily instant cleanser like Lancôme's Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover gets rid of tough residue like waterproof mascara, leaving you with a fresh canvas to complete the rest of your skincare routine.
How to use a cleanser in your skincare routine
First, use a cotton pad and Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover to remove any stubborn eye or lip makeup.
After removing makeup, wet your hands and face - this will help you work up a good lather. Then, apply a few pumps or squirts of your favourite facial cleanser into your hands and gently massage onto your face using circular motions. Treating your skin gently and avoiding rough scrubbing motions is essential in maintaining the integrity of your skin.
Take care not to over cleanse your skin - once in the morning and once in the evening is our recommendation at Lancôme. If you work out or sweat a lot, cleansing afterwards is a good idea too.
Once you’ve finished cleansing, it’s time for your toner, serum, and a moisturiser to lock in moisture.
