Choosing Cleansers for Your Specific Skin Type and Needs

The skin on our faces would experience a ton of exposure to allergens, bacteria, dirt, and more debris throughout the day. That’s why it’s absolutely crucial to cleanse your face daily so you can have smooth and healthy skin free from allergies, acne, among other blemishes.

Besides toners and moisturizers, you need a high-quality facial cleanser to clear pores from unwanted dirt and debris, preventing dirt accumulation. This will help decrease acne production, which is why it’s also important to select the right cleanser made for your specific skin type and needs. Read on for a quick and helpful guide to buy the right cleanser!

How to Choose the Most Suitable Facial Cleanser for You

I know how confusing it can be trying to find the proper facial cleanser, especially with the many brands and products available. With that said, here are a few tips and factors you should consider:

1. What’s Your Skin Type?

One of the important differences cleansers have is that they are made for individual skin types. Recognize the skin type you have before getting a facial cleanser to avoid problems like dry or oily skin.

There are three main skin types, which are:

• Dry
• Oily
• Combination

For those with dry skin, get something moisturizing, with natural oils for deeper hydration. Avoid oils if you already have oily skin, though!

2. Post or Pre-Cleanser?

A pre-cleanser is made to prep your skin for facials or when applying makeup, while post-cleansers relieve your skin when you remove makeup. Evaluate what cleanser your need most (even getting both if you apply makeup daily).

3. What’s the Consistency?

There are various textures for facial cleansers, ranging from thick and creamy down to clear and gel-like. Creamy cleansers are best for dry skin, while gel or foam are the best cleansers for oily skin.

4. Avoid Harsh Facial Cleansers

Avoid purchasing harsh and oil-dissolving cleansers that are soap-based. This is because such facial cleansers have alkaline properties and those made for dry skin may leave a greasy layer on the face, which can negatively affect your skin’s quality. Don’t use cleansers that have your skin looking drier.

Instead, opt for cleansers that have exfoliating ingredients, having only MILD exfoliants such as microbeads or peach pits to remove dead skin cells. This can add more luster to the skin while promoting blood circulation.

5. Fragrance-Free is Best

Cleansers and perfumes are two different things, so it’s best to choose fragrance-free varieties, especially when you have sensitive skin. This is because scented cleansers usually have chemicals that may cause skin irritation.

Besides that, stay away from cleansers containing sulfates, which are synthetic detergents that form lather when mixed with water. This would strip your skin of its natural oils, opening your pores and making it prone to acne.

6. Do You Have Any Skin Problems?

There are cleansers formulated to help target specific skin problems. Yes, they don’t just cleanse your face!

If you've noticed, some cleansers tackle issues such as "acne-free cleansers" or "oil balancing cleansers". So if you have any skin issues you'd like to address, you can find a cleanser that works best for it. Just make sure that it also suits your skin type.


No two people have the exact same skin type and needs, which is why you need to research to get the best skincare products for optimum results. With this helpful guide, you are one step closer to an effective skincare routine for a blemish free face.

Use these tips to invest in a high-quality facial cleanser. Good luck!
