Cleansing your face should be done correctly and should not be ignored.
Not just at night but in the morning you need an excellent energizing and refreshing face wash or cleanser to wash out all the excess oils and impurities. It also sorts of wakes you up and invigorates you for the whole day!
I remember the days back when my mum used to wash my face daily in the morning before going to the school even if it was chilling cold winters. I always kept complaining to her, but as I grew up, it did wonders for my skin. Cleansing my face with my face wash is an essential part of my beauty regime. Without it, I can’t even think to put my makeup on. Nowadays, various brands are coming up with fantastic face washes and here are some of my favorites.
But before getting started with the list of best face wash for women in India. Let’s very quickly discuss the most googled questions, which are undoubtedly gonna help you to choose the perfect face wash for your skin.
So, the first question is why do we need a face wash?
Facial cleansing is the most crucial part of your cleansing regime. It not only refreshes you but also removes the build-up dirt and excess oil from your face. It boosts the hydration level and gives your face a natural glow. Face cleansing also reduces the horrifying breakouts and gives a clear, glowing skin. We should avoid using soaps and switch to Face Washes because soaps are not gentle to skin, It takes away the natural oil from the skin and leaves the face dry and stretchy. Few soaps may also contain harsh sulfates which may cause skin problems. Moreover, It also doesn’t remove excess dirt and impurities as a facewash does. Trust me, switching your soap with a face wash is one of the best decision you have ever made.
How Do They Work?
Face Washes and Cleansers are used to remove dirt, dust, excess oil, grime, and makeup. The application of face cleansers and face washes may also help to keep you refreshed and hydrated. All along with this is also very necessary that the cleanser we are using balances the oil level in our skin and doesn’t dry out the skin. Micelles in skin cleansers surround dirt, oil, grime, etc. In this process, they take away the oil from the skin hence changing the pH level. The normal pH of skin is between 4.5 and 6.5, and an alkaline substance raises that level, increasing the potential for dryness, which is why many cleansers leave the skin feeling dry.
How to choose the right Face Wash for your skin?
You should know your skin type before selecting a face wash.
If you have dry skin, choose a face wash which has low alcohol content in it. Cream-based or foamy face washes are suitable for your skin type. Use a foamy cleanser in the morning followed by serum or moisturizer. At night, use a cream-based cleanser to remove dirt and impurities to keep the skin hydrated gently.
If you have oily skin, want something with low PH level which will help to maintain oil balance of your skin. Gel-based and foamy face washes are best for your skin type.
If you have sensitive skin, you should probably go for something that has original content in it and is gentle to your skin. You should avoid high alcohol content, and heavy fragrance face washes as it can cause breakouts in your skin.
