The Best Face Cleansers For Sensitive Skin


While some people wake up every day looking Instagram ready, fresh-faced and acne-free, others, like me, wake up unable to figure out the mood of their pores. Managing sensitive skin can be difficult and sometimes frustrating as you are prone to not just acne but different skin conditions. The solution for sensitive skin starts with using the right products for your face especially when it involves cleansers.

While this piece focuses on facial cleansers, a skincare revolution begins with taking a hard look at the ingredients in the face cleanser, toner, and cream you use every day. The face cleanser you use can either make or mar the condition of your skin. It is of utmost importance that you use a cleanser that suits your unique chemical makeup. So how do you even know what product suits your skin? Research, research, research. Or, if you have access to a dermatologist, that’s a great place to start.

If you have sensitive skin, your pores are prone to persistent or periodic outbursts, and harsh chemicals will definitely unleash havoc on your skin. You should opt for a cleanser with nourishing and mild ingredients that will appease your skin while cleansing it at the same time. Be sure to check for potentially harmful ingredients in your face cleansers, such as parabens, fragrances, and phthalates, as they can cause an imbalance in your skin pH. Using face cleansers that contain these harmful ingredients might cause irritation, rashes, and/or skin drying out, leading to breakouts and redness. It would be best if you also refrained from any cleanser that contains menthol or eucalyptol, as any of these will bar your skin from its natural sebum. Using a face cleanser that contains these ingredients can over strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to more skin sensitivity or acne.

Be sure to choose facial cleansers free from damaging chemicals and full of calm vitamins and potent ingredients that soothe the skin. Avoid harsh and harmful cleansers, and you are on your way to flawless skin! To help you get started on the right path, we’ve curated 7 mild face cleansers that work great for sensitive skin.
