Confused by skin cleansers? We got you. To make the whole get-glowing-skin process easier, we’re answering some of the hottest questions surrounding the topic (what is a cleanser, what does cleanser do, how do I use a facial cleanser, how often… you get the idea) plus offering up a few ways St. Ives products can help you always put your best face forward.
First thing’s first, what is a facial cleanser?
That’s an easy one: It’s a product, specifically formulated for the face, that is applied to remove make-up, dead skin cells, dirt and other impurities from the skin’s surface. It’s also primo in your skincare routine.
Got it. Now how do I use a facial cleanser?
Find your best headband to secure your hair back and dampen your face. Apply a dime size of your cleanser to your fingertips and massage into skin. Rinse with lukewarm water and use a clean towel to dry.
Hey! These are just the basics…we’ve got even more tips about how to wash your face.
Oily skin requires ingredients that rid excess oil and shine
Dry skin needs gentle cleansing that will clean the skin and is rich in hydration
Combination skin that is both oily and dry requires a product that will tackle both needs
Sensitive skin needs extra-gentle cleansing to help avoid flare-ups
Which leads us to the next question… What are some types of facial cleansers?
St. Ives has a bunch of options when it comes to facial cleansers. Read about them below.

How often should you use a facial cleanser?
Most pros would say twice a day: once when you wake up and the other before you hop into bed at night. Going to sleep with a face full of makeup is definitely a no-no because it can lead to clogged pores when you sleep. Guess they don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing!
