Why is using a cleanser important?
Throughout the daytime and as you sleep, your skin both attracts and produces impurities that can clog pores and spread bacteria. This build-up might be in the form of makeup and daytime pollution, or excess sebum pumped out at night. Cleansing your skin with a daily face wash is the best way to ensure a healthy complexion, free from product residue and grime.
How should a cleanser be used?
To effectively cleanse the skin, apply cleanser to the palms of your hands with a small amount of water. Massage into the face and neck in circular motions. Then thoroughly rinse with warm water. Some cleansers are suitable for the eye area, but always check the directions and cautions on the label.
Once the cleanser has been washed off, wet your hands and work them over the skin once more to ensure the product has been fully removed. Cleanse skin in the morning and evening for an effective skincare routine.
Which Medik8 cleanser is best for normal skin?
Medik8 Gentle Cleanse, the perfect introduction to the brand’s skincare, has been developed with all skin types in mind. Gentle Cleanse is a non-exfoliating foam that is gentle on the skin whilst still offering a deep and effective cleanse. The fragrance-free and pH-balanced formula effortlessly removes makeup and impurities without stripping the skin of oils or disturbing moisture levels. Gentle Cleanse is also enriched with hydrating Glycerine and antioxidant Organic Rosemary Oil, both of which help to nourish and protect skin during cleansing.
Which Medik8 cleanser is best for oily skin?
If you are after an effective face wash for oily skin, Medik8 Surface Radiance Cleanse is an ideal choice. This potent gel cleanser utilises both AHAs and BHAs to cleanse the skin of impurities whilst offering additional exfoliation to help control oil levels and brighten skin. Surface Radiance Cleanse also contains L-Mandelic Acid and Salicylic Acid to provide a deep pore cleanse to detoxify skin and clear congestion.
Which Medik8 cleanser is best for dry skin?
Medik8 Cream Cleanse is the perfect choice for normal-to-dry skin, as this cream quickly and easily dissolves makeup and impurities without stripping skin of moisture. Enriched with natural Glycerine and Cocoa Seed Butter to hydrate and smooth skin, anti-ageing Cream Cleanse also contains Natural Shea Butter, and is suitable for use around the delicate eye area.
Which Medik8 cleanser is best for sensitive skin?
Calmwise Soothing Cleanser soothes sensitive skin whilst removing impurities with a formula designed to calm reactivity and irritation. This paraben- and perfume-free cleanser is pH-balanced to protect your skin. Red Alert is a super-delicate foaming and hypoallergenic formula to deliver a gentle but effective cleanse.
Why is using a face scrub recommended?
Many Medik8 cleansers contain additional exfoliants to gently remove dead skin cells. Still, using a separate face exfoliator once or twice a week is the best way to deeply exfoliate the skin and enjoy a smooth and healthy complexion. Exfoliators can help to clear congestion by removing blackheads, bacteria, and dead skin cells. Medik8 Pore Refining Scrub doubles as a body scrub and can even be used to exfoliate lips.
