Face it, what’s in your facial cleanser really does matter! You wouldn’t want to remove the ‘bad stuff’ (makeup, dead skin, sweat and dirt), and then rub harmful ingredients from your face wash back into your clean skin. The skin on your face is thin and delicate, effectively absorbing whatever it comes into contact with. That’s why it’s important to be mindful of the ingredients you’re putting on your face and to always choose safer, cleaner formulas.
Finding the right cleanser for your skin type, sensitivity level, and problem area, is key. It’s ideal to preserve the natural oils found in your skin and at the same time, pull the bad stuff out. We’ve broken down which cleansers to use and when. And, since Halloween is just around the corner—think heavy makeup, glitter and face paint—there’s even more of a reason to find cleaner alternatives to fight off those irritants and harmful chemicals. Hint: The Soothing Oil is the perfect Halloween makeup remover for both you and your little ones.
