Facewashes to your rescue

Facewashes to your rescue

Cleansing is the first step in any skincare- routine. It doesn’t matter if you follow a simple 3 step
C-T-M (cleansing, toning, moisturizing) routine or a fancy eight or nine steps Korean skincare
routine, cleansing is an essential. Your skin gathers dirt throughout the day and clogs up your
pores, which then can lead acne and whole another set of problems. You also accumulate dead
skin which makes your skin look dull and tired. This is why using a right cleansing agent is
necessary as just water is not enough and using a soap daily will be harsh on your skin. Even if
you are busy (or lazy) you cannot afford to miss this step.

Facewashes are the favored cleansing agents as they are easily available and much easier to use
then cleansing oils or balms. Experts nowadays advice to double cleanse which makes choosing
the right facewash according to your skin type more important. Today, I have provided 10
different options for you, both affordable and high-end options to suit all types of skin like dry,
oily, sensitive and acne-prone. Let’s look at the affordable options first.
