To begin with, I believe face cleansing is the first step in every beauty routine.  Indeed, it helps remove excess oil, environmental debris, bacteria, and other microorganisms, as well as the residue from makeup products.

 

Tips for Using a Facial Cleanser

 

When it comes to cleansing your skin, especially if you have sensitive skin, consider following this advice:

 

  1. Choose your facial cleanser according to your skin type.
  2. Make it a habit to wash your face both in the morning and in the evening, without skipping.
  3. Handle your skin gently with your fingertips without rubbing, pulling, or scratching.
  4. If you use a towel to dry your face, make sure to pat your face lightly – no hard pressure is needed on the skin of your face!
  5. Leave your skin slightly damp so that the moisturizer you will use afterward seals in the moisture.

 

Skin Type Categories

 

After looking at the ingredients of numerous non-toxic facial cleansers, I grouped them into three categories according to the skin type:

  • dry to normal/combination,
  • very dry, and
  • oily skin.

 

To emphasize, I have placed each product into an assigned skin-type category based on my opinion about how the product formulation should work, not based on how the manufacturers promote their products.

 

In addition, many non-toxic skincare products contain essential oils to provide a scent.  Knowing that there some of you are sensitive to scents and essential oils, I indicated in the brackets if the product is essential oil-free.
