For the uninitiated, clean beauty is the buzzword for 2021 and for the years to come. Why, you ask? Simply because clean beauty products are a mindful concoction of toxic-free ingredients that don’t burden the environment or harm our skin in any way.
And when the very first step in skincare is to wash your face, why not do your skin (and the earth) a favour and switch to using clean face washes. Psst… they’re soap-free too. If you don’t know where and how to pick the right clean face wash for your skin type, fret not; we’ve got you covered. Here are three clean, soap-free face washes for every skin type.
For dry skin types
Most face washes strip the skin of its essential moisture, leaving it dry, tight and patchy. It’s time to swap your regular cleanser with a moisturising clean face wash. Our favourite is the Simple Kind To Skin Moisturising Facial Wash. It’s free of alcohol, parabens, artificial fragrance and colours. Instead, it’s infused with hydrating ingredients like pro-vitamin B5, Vitamin E and Bisabolol that remove dirt, oil and product buildup and leave the skin soft and supple.
For sensitive skin types
Sensitive skin can often be a tricky minefield to navigate. One wrong move, and your face can flare up or turn red and inflamed. That’s why you need a clean face wash like the Simple Kind To Skin Refreshing Facial Wash in your stash. Dermatologically tested, this face wash is free of baddies like alcohol, paraben, synthetic colours and perfumes. It’s made with skin-loving ingredients like triple purified water that thoroughly cleanses the skin and pro-Vitamin B and E that hydrates and soothes your skin.
For oily and acne-prone skin types
Don’t run off to wash your face multiple times a day because it gets oily — this will only trigger the sebaceous glands to produce more oil to make up for the lack of hydration. Stick to washing your face 2-3 times a day using a soap-free face wash like the Simple Daily Skin Detox Purifying Facial Wash. Made specifically to deal with unwanted oiliness, acne, spots and clogged pores, this oily skin saviour contains thyme, zinc and witch hazel that eliminates grease and dirt, control excess shine, while being super-gentle on your skin. Plus, it’s dermatologically tested and non-comedogenic.
