Facial Cleanser vs Face Wash
Hmmm...is there a difference?
Actually, yes. And choosing the wrong one could be short changing your skin.
Let’s see how this debate lathers up.
Face washes and cleansers are actually pretty different from each other. While they both remove dirt, oil and makeup, and other impurities from your face, how they clean your skin is quite different.
To clear up any confusion—and to ensure you’re using the best product for your skin type—let’s look at the key differences between a cleanser and face wash.
How Does Face Wash Work?
Your typical face wash is a water-based product that lathers up easily when massaged on your skin. It usually contains more astringent ingredients to help combat oil production - it’s formulated to really get in there and deeply clean pores and sweep away oil.
For many women this deep clean can accidentally remove too much oil from your skin, which can result in a tight, dry, or otherwise uncomfortable feeling.
What Does Lexi Facial Cleaner Do?
Unlike your standard face wash, Lexi Facial cleanser is a non-irritating cleanser that’s gentle enough to use twice a day - washing away the dirt, oil and makeup that clogs pores and leaves your skin looking dry and dull.
Used regularly, our facial cleanser leaves skin feeling soft, clean, and refreshed - it’s the perfect cleanser to start your morning skin routine and for washing away makeup and oils at the end of the day.
Even oily skin types can benefit from incorporating a cleanser into their regimen, especially if they notice their skin feels tight or dry after washing.
How Often Should I Cleanse?
Everyone has their own routine, but it’s best to try to stick with once or twice daily, making sure you’re cleansing every night. If it seems like your skin needs less, skip doing it in the morning and just rinse with water.
So to settle, the great Facial Cleanser vs Face wash debate, we think Lexi Facial Cleanser is your best bet to easily fit into your busy schedule and skincare regime.
Choosing Lexi Facial Cleanser for your skin, and using it only once or twice a day, will help ensure you look and feel your best!
