How to Pick the Right Cleanser for Your Skin Type

Cleansing is the first step in any skincare routine, and it should be a top priority. It sets the stage by washing away pore-clogging particulates and preps skin for subsequent moisturisers, serums, and night creams.

At Image Skincare, we offer a variety of cleansers with different capabilities and properties to help you reach your skincare goals. Let’s dive into our dermatologist-formulated collection of cleansers—and you can decide which would work best for you.

Ageing & Pigmented Skin

Ageing and pigmented skin needs special care. Even if you have a cleanser you’ve used religiously for a long time, it may be time to switch things up for something specifically formulated for your needs. The AGELESS total facial cleanser is ideal for mature skin that is beginning to show the appearance of pigmentation from sun damage. It’s the best way to jumpstart the exfoliation process in order to slough away dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. This cleanser is gentle enough for everyday use despite the fact that it’s exfoliating. It’s not harsh and won’t cause irritation. In fact, it is actually also used at the beginning of every IMAGE Skincare professional peel to prepare skin for treatment.

Acne-Prone Skin

Acne-prone skin tends to be oilier than most. This skin type needs an oil-balancing cleanser that also contains ingredients that help fight blemishes. The CLEAR CELL salicylic gel cleanser is exactly what you need if you suffer from breakouts regularly. It features salicylic acid as a key ingredient. Salicylic acid is a known acne-fighting ingredient that helps reduce the appearance of blemishes and also helps exfoliate skin. Regular use of this cleanser will help reduce the number of lesions. This cleanser also helps reduce sebum without over-drying skin.

Dull, Flaky, Pigmented Skin

If your skin is flaky and dull, it probably needs a healthy dose of hydration. The ILUMA intense brightening cleanser provides that and more thanks to its brightening capabilities that help to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation. It is sulfate-free, so it won’t strip skin of its natural oils or lead to over-drying. It gently exfoliates to reduce flakiness, and it also helps balance redness to give skin a more visibly even tone. Dark spots will also become less noticeable with regular use.

Skin With Fine Lines

Fine lines develop slowly but surely, and by the time we are over 35, we might notice that they appear more noticeable than even just a few short years ago. Once we are in our 30s, wrinkles and fine lines begin to rear their heads after decades of sun damage and pollution exposure. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t reduce or minimise the appearance of wrinkles. With the right products, wrinkles can appear smoother and less obvious. The MAX stem cell facial cleanser is the one you need to incorporate into your skincare routine if you want anti-aging results. This cleanser is powered by an advanced polypeptide and plant-derived stem cell technology. It balances the skin’s pH, while also nourishing the skin and helping to protect it against daily pollutants. Plant stem cells have been shown to be helpful against the visible signs of ageing.

Sensitive or Unbalanced Skin

Those of us with sensitive skin know how challenging it can be to find the right beauty products. The ORMEDIC balancing facial cleanser is specifically formulated for sensitive, unbalanced skin that needs extra TLC. It is a mild, gentle cleanser that washes away impurities to leave skin feeling soft and refreshed. It is sulfate-free and features a nourishing complex of organic aloe vera and soothing botanical extracts. This award-winning cleanser is non-irritating and extremely loving towards sensitive skin. Use it morning and night to remove debris, makeup, SPF, and excess oil.

Skin Prone to Redness & Dryness

With skin prone to redness and dryness, it’s important to take a gentle approach. However, you don’t have to sacrifice key ingredients in order to do so. The VITAL C hydrating facial cleanser will hydrate and help reduce redness without stripping skin of its natural oils or increasing sensitivity. It is enhanced with vitamins C and A to promote the appearance of healthy and youthful skin. Vitamin C further helps boost the appearance of collagen-deprived skin and promotes the appearance of a more even tone. Vitamin A also helps improve the look of ageing skin by helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Bottom Line: Your choice of cleanser goes a long way in helping to promote healthy, youthful-looking skin. Remember that not all cleansers are created equal, and make sure you are choosing one specific to your particular skin needs.
