Healthy Facial Cleansers
Posted on May 22 2015
That refreshing feeling of washing away makeup and environmental elements at the end of the day is wonderful. Reaching for your favorite cleanser in the morning with an awakening splash of water is equally satisfying. Facial cleansing helps to maintain a healthy glowing complexion.
How do you know which cleansers are right for you? We have plenty of options here.
To narrow down your choices, first let’s consider some of the different types available. We’ve selected a range of products that cover all the cleansing bases:
California Naturel Gentle Cleansing Gel is an organic aloe-based formula that removes impurities without drying skin. Soapberry fruit extract, white tea, rose, chamomile, lavender, ylang ylang, and algae extract come together to purify the skin. Suitable for all skin types, including the most sensitive, this product is a transparent foaming gel.
Osmia Black Clay Facial Soap is a bar soap that works well on normal, problem, and combination skin. Black Australian clay and Dead Sea mud balance and tone skin while organic almond, avocado, and castor bean oils condition, leaving skin soft and nourished. Coconut milk helps make the beautiful, white lather. This soap is also recommended for perioral dermatitis.
S5 Organic Cosmesceuticals Nourish Cleanser is an oil-based balm with desert bioactives. Arctic sea buckthorn, desert pomegranate oil, Chilean rosehip oil, and desert argan oil come together in this gentle cleanser. Good for normal to dry skin and great for removing makeup. Warm a small amount between palms. Massage onto dry face, including around the eye area to take off light makeup. Add warm water to form a light milk. Rinse clean.
de Mamiel Restorative Cleansing Balm is a silky formula with mood-lifting flower essences of honey myrtle, fragonia, chamomile and rose geranium that will take your daily cleansing ritual to another level. A blend of skin-perfecting probiotics, anti-bacterial manuka, and nourishing kukui, calendula and moringa oils cosset and deep-cleanse. Massage a small amount between palms and apply to face and neck in upward circular motions. Soak a cloth in warm water and hold it against your face for a minute, to steam and activate the oils—breathe deep, then buff away.
Kari Gran Cleansing Oil blends sunflower, avocado, castor seed, and lavender oils to form a deep-cleaning, balancing cleanser designed for use once daily during your evening beauty regimen. Apply 8-10 pumps into dry palm. Liberally massage onto dry face and neck. Apply a hot (not scalding) washcloth to face and let cool. Gently wipe face and neck with the washcloth to remove excess oil while providing a light exfoliation.
Fig + Yarrow Cleansing Nectar is a cleansing and toning hybrid offering gentle exfoliation while drawing impurities and restoring optimal pH maintenance. This low-maintenance washless cleanser is beneficial for all skin types with botanically-rich and nutrient dense ingredients like lavender hydrosol, ginko biloba and willow bark. Shake well, dab onto cotton, apply to face and neck in circular motions. May be diluted with water for extra sensitive skin. Lightly remove any excess residue with a water-dampened cotton.
Acure Organics Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes are fantastic when you’re on the go because there is no splashing or rinsing necessary. Stash these in your suitcase, purse and gym bag. You’ll be surprised how often these come in handy. How about those nights when you’re simply too tired to splash water on your face?
