A good cleanser is an essential part of any skin care routine. Leaving impurities, such as makeup and dirt, on your face can clog your pores, resulting in acne. It also dulls the surface of your skin, which can leave you looking older and more tired. Before you go to bed each night, you need to ensure that all of these problematic substances are removed from your face, using a cleanser.
However, for those with dry skin, many cleansers can be too drying. They may strip the skin of its natural oils, resulting in skin that feels tight and itchy and may look flaky or irritated. The challenge is to find a cleanser that actually works, but doesn’t dry out your skin. This requires a cleanser that’s specifically formulated for dry skin.
Obagi’s Gentle Cleanser is formulated for those with normal to dry skin. It gently removes makeup and other dirt from your face, without completely stripping your skin of its natural oils. This leaves your skin feeling refreshed, but still hydrated. Afterward, you may want to follow up with other products, such as Toner and Clear or Blender, to complete your skin care routine.
