Compared to the complex world of serums, moisturizers, and other treatments, cleansers are easy to overlook. Most people consider them simply to be a way to remove the day’s dirt and makeup; however, the reality is that cleansers have an inherently powerful effect on the condition of your skin. Whether this effect is positive or negative is ultimately determined by which formula you choose.
Well-formulated cleansers do more than wash your face. They allow serums and moisturizers to absorb properly, along with other product-specific benefits — exfoliating, unclogging pores, improving tone and texture, restoring your skin’s moisture balance, and more. The ideal cleanser will be medical-grade, gentle, non-irritating, non-comedogenic, and appropriate for your skin. Ageology’s Chamomile Facial Cleanser is a gentle gel cleanser formulated with chamomile and ginger essential oils to calm and soothe skin, helping to reduce redness and irritation. Algae peptides firm and smooth skin texture, while brown algae extract clears away pollution and makeup.
Cleansing isn’t just a prerequisite for a good skincare regimen — it’s an inherent part of it, and it deserves just as much careful consideration as any other step.
