How To Choose An Exfoliating Cleanser For Dry Skin?

Exfoliating Cleanser

An exfoliating cleanser can give you that deep facial cleansing feel you are looking for! Removing dry skin, dead skin, make-up, oil and dirt all in one cleanser definitely makes the exfoliating cleanser a top choice if you are searching for the best facial cleanser. When it comes to choosing an exfoliating cleanser, there are many different types. There is exfoliating cleansers for the body, face exfoliator, lip exfoliator and exfoliators for oily or dry skin. What do you need to consider when choosing an exfoliating cleanser if you have dry skin?

First, avoid an exfoliating cleanser if it has a high percentage of volcanic rock. This will be too harsh on dry skin and can irritate it. Make sure your cleanser states it is formulated for dry skin on the label as well.

If you choose to make your own exfoliating cleanser, there are many soap making recipes available. You must make sure that you know what you will need if you are prone to dry skin. Your homemade exfoliator will need to have some grit that will be sensitive to your skin and enough moisturizer so that your skin does not dry out even further. It might be best to contact a dermatologist before making your own cleansers to make sure you don’t cause dermatitis.

You can also choose an exfoliating cleanser that will work on all skin types, especially if you only have dry skin patches on your face. If you have oily spots, or normal skin and you suffer from dry skin areas, choosing a cleanser made specifically for dry skin will not help the other areas that are not affected by dryness. You can also use a dry skin exfoliating cleanser just on your dry areas, and then use an all over combination skin moisturizer to balance your skin out.
