Know about the different varieties of cleansers in the market and how to pick up one for yourself.

There are several alternatives to soap and water cleansing and one such option is using cleansers. A common benefit of using cleansers on the face is that it helps to remove dirt, dust, oil and unwanted debris from the face. If your face is covered with dust and dirt, it is preferable to clean your face with a light weighted cleanser. By removing all the dirt and impurities from the skin, cleansers can help to benefit you with a fresh and glowing face.

There are different types of cleansers available in the market according to the different skin types and textures. All the cleansers are basically a mixture of oil, wax and water but manufacturers modify the formula to suit different skin types.
With different types of cleansers in the market right from normal skin cleansers to mild cleansers, here we bring before you a list of various types of cleansers in the market.


1. Gel cleansers

Gel cleansers are generally suitable for combination and oily skin types as it penetrates deep into the layers of the skin and prevents breakouts as well. Most of the gel cleaners do not foam a lot but they provide a decent amount of lather to remove the toxins and dirt from the face. Due to the gel-like texture, many people are not convinced that the skin is clean but it actually deep cleanses your skin and prevents accumulation of oil on the face.


2. Cleansing milk

Most of us use cleansing milk as a makeup remover and not a cleanser. However, cleansing milk is a mild type of skin cleanser which helps to deep cleanse your pores and also hydrates your skin. Cleansers are generally made of milk extract which help to keep your skin soft, smooth and hydrated. Cleansing the face with cleansing milk can help to control sebum secretions. However, you might need a double cleanse after using a cleansing milk. If you feel your skin is clean and happy, skip the process of double cleansing.


3. Self-foaming cleanser

Self-foaming cleansers are good for normal, combination and oily skin. People with extremely dry, sensitive or skin with eczema should stay away from self-foaming cleansers. The self-foaming cleanser is also known as an environmentally friendly product as you need very little water to rinse it. People with extra dry skin should avoid using self-foaming cleansers as it may dry out your skin too much.


4. Exfoliating cleanser

An exfoliating cleanser is extremely good for all kinds of skin, except sensitive and very dry skin. The exfoliating cleanser is also known as a 3 in 1 user product as it helps to deep cleanse the skin, exfoliate well and also remove the makeup thoroughly. This cleanser is one of the best cleansers to be used to remove makeup. Depending upon the ingredients, an exfoliating cleanser should not be used every day.


5. Multi-task cleanser

A multi-task cleanser is suitable for all skin types and is used as a hydrating product as well. Using multi-task cleansers helps to remove heavy makeup and also works as an excellent hydrating product. It is extremely light and hydrating on the skin. Even if you don't want to remove makeup using this, you can also use this on bare skin as it helps to keep your skin hydrated and clean. However, you should skip using a toner after cleaning your skin with a multi-task cleanser.


6. Foaming cleanser

A foaming cleanser is extremely good for combination and oily skin. It helps to clear out the skin and also moisturizes the skin well.
