Using a facial cleanser is pretty much the most basic part of any skin care routine. But while washing your face morning or night may seem like a no-brainer, it turns out there’s a lot more to learn. Below, we’ve rounded up our favorite skin care hacks to try the next time you pick up a facial cleanser.
To help rid the surface of your skin of impurities such as dirt, excess oils, and makeup, you may find that double cleansing could be beneficial. Double cleansing involves first using a no-rinse cleansing option (such as micellar water or towelettes), then following up with a rinse-off facial cleanser. We’ve got micellar water and rinse-off cleanser options for you coming right up!
Face washing doesn’t have to leave you tethered to the sink or the shower. That’s because not all cleansers actually require the use of water. No-rinse options like micellar waters are great to pack with you when you’re hitting the gym or traveling. The L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin hydrates and soothes, the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin purifies and mattifies, and the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types intensely purifies. Just saturate a cotton pad with your micellar water of choice, then wipe the pad across your face.
When it comes to picking out a facial cleanser, look for one that’s formulated to address your skin type and specific skin concerns. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Cleanser, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Cleanser, and L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refiner Cleanser are formulated to seamlessly transform from clay to mousse and remove everyday impurities from the surface of skin without over-drying. Squeeze your cleanser of choice into your hands and add water to transform it from clay to mousse. Gently massage it onto your face using circular motions, then rinse thoroughly and pat dry.
Sometimes you’re just so tired that washing your face is just about the last thing you want to do before bed. Still, skipping out on cleansing at night is a skin care no-no, as your makeup can mix with the dirt and oils that have built up throughout the day on the surface of your skin, which can lead to clogged pores—and clogged pores can lead to breakouts. Make it as easy as possible on yourself by leaving a pack of the L’Oréal Paris Ideal Clean™ All Skin Types Makeup Removing Towelettes on your bedside table or in your bag for an easy way to remove makeup pre-smooth. The ultra-soft wipes remove all traces of makeup, dirt and oil without drying out the skin.
You may also be able to use your go-to facial cleanser to clean your makeup brushes. Lather up a bit of cleanser in the palm of your hand, then move the bristles in circular motions through the lather to help break down buildup. Rinse off and leave your brushes to dry before you use them again.
Cleansing with your hands gets the job done, but a cleansing tool could very well prove useful as well. The Scrublet™, a soft cleansing disk, comes with the L’Oréal Paris Go 360° Clean Deep Facial Cleanser for Sensitive Skin and L’Oréal Paris Go 360° Clean Deep Exfoliating Scrub. Simply pop the Scrublet™ out, dampen the surface and pour some cleanser onto it, cleanse your skin, rinse off the Scrublet™, and pop it back in.
