Our daily skincare routine begins with a cleanser or face wash, and hence, it should be effective and the best from the rest. The first step in choosing the winning face cleanser would be to analyse your skin type. Whether it’s oily, combination or dry, there’s a perfect cleanser for you somewhere out there (or better yet, in here).
In addition to our natural skin types, there are various factors that affect our skin’s needs. Weather, exposure to the sun and pollution, eating and drinking habits—in a nutshell, our lifestyles, can cause changes in our original skin types.
Now, with summer (hello humidity, tans, and pigmentation) enveloping us in all its glory, it’s rather necessary to peek into our cabinet and see whether we need to make any changes to our cleansing routine.
We have rounded up 10 best-selling cleansers that are perfectly suited to tackle the heat, and aligned with your skin type too.
