How to choose the right face cleanser for sensitive & problem skin
It all starts with a good cleanse. Choosing the right cleanser is key in caring for sensitive and problem skin - often at the root of many skin issues are wrong and often too harsh cleansers, that disrupt your skin barriers. If you have moody skin, it can also be a good idea to keep two different cleansers on the shelf. Some days your skin may need a good but gentle cleanse, other days it needs a deep cleanse that doesn’t strip your skin. Or maybe you prefer to double cleanse. Our Cleansers can be used separately or together, depending on your skin day and how you like to cleanse.
