What’s Your Skin Type, Are You Using the Right Facial Cleanser?


When it comes to facial cleansing, I take it very seriously. I am a firm believer that great skincare gives us a perfect canvas for a great makeup application, and if you don’t wear makeup you could still have a gorgeous natural glow. However, having great skin shouldn’t be left up to genetics and you shouldn’t settle for just good enough. Our cleansing rituals play a huge part in how our skin reacts. Choosing the proper facial cleanser for your skin type is crucial in keeping  your skin balanced. If you use a product intended for someone else’s skin type it can throw off your skin and it will become imbalanced.

What is your skin type? Are you using the right cleanser for your skin type? Keep in mind there is a product for everyone, whether its oily, dry, combination, sensitive or the coveted normal.

Oily skin might have a lot of pimples, is very shiny, has a greasy oily feel, with noticeably large pores.
