Hi,

Skin care markets overwhelm you with a variety of options. Skin Cleansing products are available in an extensive variety of forms, types, price ranges and so on.

Here are some different type of cleansers that work well for different skin types:

Cleansing Soaps
Though soaps may claim to clean your skin very well, it should never be used on the face. Soaps contain harsh ingredients that strip off the natural moisture from the skin. However, there are gentle soaps as well which women with oily skin can benefit from.

Foaming Cleansers
They can be quite drying… so best used by women with oily skin. Even a small amount of cleanser is enough to clean your entire face. So it’s a good investment. Try Skin Care Heaven Purifying Gentle Cleanser, a deep cleaning foaming cleanser that is filled to the brim with potent antioxidants such as Green Tea and Caffeine. The Purifying Cleanser cleanses the skin and fights off free radical damage at the same time.

Cleansing Gels
They are gentle cleansers that don’t foam all that much… and therefore have a reputation of not cleansing the skin well enough. Cleansing gels can simply be washed off with water (or even wiped off with a tissue) thus making them a good choice for women with dry skin. La Roche-Posay Biomedic LHA Cleansing Gel is great for purifying and preparing the skin. Moreover, it helps to stimulate the exfoliation process as well. This Cleanser is great for evening out the skin tone and helps to remove dead skin cells.

Cleansing Lotions
These are just like gels or foaming cleansers. With its milky texture, it is an ideal choice for women with dry skin. These cleansers contain oils that remove dirt and impurities along with all traces of make-up and sunscreen without making the skin dry.

Medicated Cleansers
These cleansers are available in all forms – gels, lotions and soaps and are especially formulated for people with acne-prone skin. They contain special active ingredients like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide that help unclog the skin pores and kill the acne causing bacteria. iS Clinical Cleansing Complex by Innovative Skincare is great for resurfacing and deep cleaning the skin. It is anti-acneic and is safe enough to be used on sensitive skin. It does not leave the skin dry and contains a rich blend of antioxidants to fight free radicals.

So, the next time you are shopping for cleansers, make sure you opt for the right one!
