Cleansing is an essential part of our skincare routines, yet many of us hardly pay attention to the type of cleanser that we’re using. All that matters is that it does its job, right? Wrong. Finding a pH-balanced cleanser might not be top of mind, but it could be the key to healthier and happier skin.
Whether you’re a “skinmalist” with a cleanse-tone-moisturise routine or beauty enthusiast with an elaborate 10-step skincare ritual, it all starts with cleansing. Besides removing impurities, cleansing also preps skin to fully absorb the skincare that follows. But often, when it comes to choosing a cleanser, most of us seem to pay more attention to the ingredient list, and neglect the other important factor: the pH level.
