No one needs to tell you how important it is to maintain clear skin. An even, unblemished complexion is more comfortable and helps you feel confident.

Similarly, you probably don’t need to be told that cleansing is an important step in your skincare routine … but what’s the best way to go about it? What should you look for in a cleanser, how do you use it most effectively, and what role should it play in your regimen? Let’s take a look.

Why Use Cleansers?

Facial cleansers are a critical part of your skincare regimen because they help to remove dead skin cells, dirt, debris, toxins, and buildup that accumulate on the surface of your face and body. Whether you use glycolic acid facial cleansers to chemically exfoliate and remove oil, or prefer a simple facial scrub, you can’t afford to forego cleansers.

What Should a Good Cleanser Include?

Good cleansers require an active ingredient that helps to clear away buildup. Glycolic acid, a type of alpha-hydroxy acid that washes away dead cells and oils, is a good example of an ingredient you’d want in your face wash. Both 27% glycolic acid facial cleanser and essential foaming face wash are good glycolic acid cleanser options to consider.

Buying products that include fragrances or parabens is damaging to your skin and the environment. Sobel Skin Rx products are cruelty-free, fragrance-free, and paraben-free, so you never have to worry about the safety of your skin, animals, or the planet. 

How to Apply Cleanser

Whether you’re using facial cleansers with glycolic acid or another kind, there is a right way and a wrong way to cleanse. Here’s the basic routine you should follow:

1. Wet your face with warm water. This allows the cleanser to move around more freely and will open your pores.
2. Gently apply cleanser to your face with the tips of your fingertips. Don’t scrub overly hard and don’t use a washcloth. Trust the cleanser to do the job.
3. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water to remove the cleanser and help your pores naturally tighten back up.

Avoid hot water, which can dry out your skin. For some people, this may cause overproduction of oil and clogged pores, which ironically can mean that your cleansing routine causes blemishes. Stick with warm water to start and cool water to finish.
