There are many cleansing creams in the market. These creams work by removing dirt, oils, bacteria, makeup, and other substances that you may have acquired during your sleep or during the day. These creams have active ingredients, the most commonly used ingredients being jojoba oil, almond oil, and avocado oil. These oils have the same molecular structure as the natural skin oils and so they can be absorbed by the skin to replace lost natural oil. Other than cleansing the skin, these creams also moisturize and hydrate the skin.
Tea Tree Oil
You could use tea tree oil to cleanse your face. This has been used for many years and it works by healing infections on the skin and drying and then shrinking pimples. To apply the oil, clean the skin first, dry it, and then apply the oil lightly.
You could cleanse your face by effectively washing your face. If done correctly, face washing unclogs the pores by removing makeup, oils, and dirt and leaves the skin cleansed and this reduces the risks of acne. You should use mild, soap-free, non-comedogenic soap because strong soaps can dry your skin and strip its natural lipids which are necessary for elasticity. When cleaning your face, use cotton balls and moisturizers to avoid damaging the skin. When cotton balls remain white after cleaning, this is an indication that your skin is clear. You should use lukewarm water for this. After cleaning your face, use a moisturizer to replenish any natural oils that might have been lost in the washing. You could use pure aloe Vera oil and/or vitamin E which are tested moisturizers.
You could use mud-based masks to cleanse your skin. Mud has been proven to have exfoliating properties, removing dead skin cells from your face and stimulating the growth of new cells. Mud-based masks also detoxify the skin by bringing out toxins so that they can be removed by simple washing. Other effective face cleansers include avocado and banana masks and facial cleansing nectar.
