Skin 101: Cleansers

Cleansers - often the unsung heroes of the skincare routine. Made to purify and prep the skin, your cleanser may not sound as exciting as the latest serum or treatment on the market but is an absolute basic when it comes to making the most of your skincare products.

Why do we recommend a cleanser?

Cleansers are the best way to remove the dirt, oil, and other unwanted nasties on your skin to reveal a fresh clean canvas to take care of. And if we left that dirt and oil on our skin, it would make it extremely difficult for other products to properly penetrate the skin’s surface.

Plus, we all know what else dirt and oil clogging our pores leads to… nasty blemishes. And we all have much more important things in our life to be worrying about! #BlemishBye

The best first place to start is to know your skin type. Look in the mirror, feel your skin, then check out our recommendations below based on what you find.
