Ingredients To Look For In A Cleanser

We all know that facial cleansers are an irreplaceable part of your daily skincare routine. So much so, that your choice of cleanser goes a long way in how your skin acts every day, and also on your overall skin health. While we’ve given you our list of the perfect facial cleansers, here are some ingredients you can especially look for to get the exact results you want!

Salicylic Acid

When it comes to clearing acne, salicylic acid is a godsend! It is the go-to ingredient if you have oily skin, for it penetrates deep in your pores to thoroughly cleanse your skin. Not only does it unclog your pores, but it also gets rid of acne-causing sebum.

Vitamin C

Now this one is a beauty essential that you should never go without. Not only does Vitamin C helps you maintain an even skin tone, but it also boosts your skin’s natural glow. What’s more, it works well for your skin irrespective of its type, do we need to say more?

Ceramides

One of the reasons why oily skin creates excessive oil is due to the lack of moisture. When your skin lacks moisture, the sebaceous glands end up producing excessive oil to make up for the deficiency, thus leading to unnecessary oil! To prevent this from happening, make sure your facial cleanser has ceramides, as they help in retaining moisture in your skin cells!

Vitamin E

An essential ingredient for anyone who wishes to nourish their skin, vitamin E is great for minimising skin damage caused due to UV rays. It also helps in getting rid of dark spots and pigmentation, thus making way for healthy, glowing skin!
