From cream to water-based to clay, there are quite a few types of facial cleanser formulas to consider. One staple we didn’t mention? Foam cleansers! This popular cleanser type is one you should consider adding to your daily skin care routine. Want to know why? You’ll have to keep reading! Below, we’re sharing what exactly a foam cleanser is, who can benefit from using one, our best L’Oréal foam cleanser, and how to use a foam cleanser in your skin care regimen. Let’s get to it!
This may seem pretty self-explanatory, but we figured we’d give you a breakdown on what a foam cleanser is. Just as you may have guessed, a foam cleanser creates a foamy lather when you apply it. These cleansers tend to intensely cleanse and purify your skin by removing the buildup of oils, makeup, and other impurities that accumulate throughout the day. While foam cleansers can be used by anyone, they’re often recommended for those with oily or acne-prone skin due to their thorough cleansing properties. Of course, some foam cleansers, like our best L’Oréal foam cleanser, are actually meant for all skin types!
Now that you know more about what a foam cleanser is and who can benefit from using one, you may be wanting some product recommendations. Well, look no further than our best L’Oréal foam cleanser—the L’Oréal Paris Ideal Clean All Skin Types Foaming Gel Cleanser. This oil-free cleanser gently removes makeup and buffs away impurities, leaving skin refreshed and radiant. The gel formula makes removing makeup quick and easy, deeply purifying while helping to minimize pores. As we mentioned, our foam cleanser works for all skin types (score!), and it won’t leave behind any tightness or residue.
So, how do you go about using a foam cleanser in your skin care routine? Follow the steps below to do just that.
First things first, you’ll want to wash your face! Before reaching for your L’Oréal foam cleanser, wet your face and hands with lukewarm water. Work a small amount of the gel into a foamy lather and massage it onto your face using a gentle, circular motion. Then, rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry with a soft towel.
Next, you’ll want to apply an eye cream. Try the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power™ Eye Treatment. Formulated with Pro-Xylane and hyaluronic acid, the powerful formula works to repair wrinkles, reduce bags, and lift the eye area. With your ring finger, apply the eye cream in small dots around your eye, then smooth gently until thoroughly absorbed.
Grab a serum to give your skin some extra TLC. We love the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Formulated with 1.5% pure hyaluronic acid, the serum absorbs quickly to replenish and reduce the appearance of wrinkles for visibly plumped, youthful-looking skin. Apply two to three drops to the face and neck and gently smooth over your skin.
Complete your foam cleanser skin care routine with a moisturizer! It’s so important to moisturize after cleansing, especially when you’ve used a deep cleansing option like a foam cleanser. Try using a water-based moisturizer. Choose one from the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care line, picking based on your skin type. If you have oily skin, reach for the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care - Normal/Oily Skin. If you have dry skin, use the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care - Normal/Dry Skin. As for extra dry skin, give the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care - Extra Dry Skin a try.
