Know what’s good and bad for your skin

We all desire beautiful skin. But did you know that to get beautiful skin, we need to first take care of our skin health? That’s why it’s important to know what’s good and bad for your skin when it comes to choosing a facial cleanser. Here are a few tips to help you with that:

Avoid soap

A cleanser that produces a lot of foam usually has a high soap content, which can strip your skin of its natural oils. Due to its high pH value, soap can also disrupt your skin’s natural barrier function, leaving your skin dry and flaky.

Heavily scented cleansers are a no-no

We all love smelling great, don’t we? But unfortunately, heavily scented skincare products may cause negative skin reactions. That’s because the ‘fragrance’ you love could contain multiple scent additives, each having the potential to trigger an allergic reaction especially to those with sensitive skin.

Opt for a gentle cleanser

Using a cleanser that’s too harsh on the skin can impair your skin’s natural barrier function, allowing external factors such as bacteria and irritants to enter the skin more easily and thus causing skin irritation. Instead, use a gentle cleanser like Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser to maintain your skin’s natural barrier function.

I’ve tried Cetaphil’s gentle skin cleanser and it really works amazingly well! The product feels extremely mild yet is still able to cleanse my face well unlike some other cleansers that will leave your skin feeling very dry as it’s very harsh. Also, it’s really cool that it can be used with or without water so that makes it so much more convenient and easy – Pauline Ng
