Shopping online can be overwhelming at times—but it doesn’t have to be. Instead of making our customers wade through the cluttered waters of the online beauty space, we’ve streamlined the process. Find the best products and gain insights on high-quality ingredients, routines, and tricks to achieve a refreshed complexion – only at Beauty Connections.
If you’ve been looking for a new cleanser, read on to learn more about some of the key ingredients we recommend for specific concerns and challenges—we reckon that you’ll be glad that you did.
Face Cleaners, Creams, and Foaming Agents
When trying out any new products, we always recommend:
Buying according to your skin type, not trend: Even though it seems like there is always a new hot ingredient, topic, or tool on the market, you should really only try out regimes that are catered to your base type. Have a particularly sensitive face? A high percentage of retinol is likely not for you.
Confirming your go-tos: Much like the above, knowing what ingredients target concerns and your own personal challenges are is key. Have a great complexion but struggle with sun damage? Vitamin C is great for targeting environmental damage and scarring—but not as specifically targeted to active pimples or cystic acne.
After knowing what key challenges you’re addressing, face washes can be further broken down into:
Cream-based: Great options for those with dry, sensitive skin
Oil-based: An excellent choice for those who like to double cleanse on days they wear make-up or SPF
Foaming cleansers are better suited to those with oily skin or for cleaning up any residue left by an oil remover.
Each comes with its own active ingredients, which means you can target concerns even while you wash up. Among our favourite add-ins there are:
Rosehip: For soothing irritated faces and adding in extra hydration
Salicylic acid: Which can combat active acne, blackheads and blocked pores and help boost natural exfoliation
Vitamin C: Which can target scarring, help even out facial tone, and boost the overall appearance of the epidermis with gentle exfoliating benefits
Your base type and any active concerns should always influence the products you buy—not necessarily what’s only new and trendy on the market.
