Cleansing: am/pm cleansers

Cleansing the face is the most important step in keeping healthy and vibrant looking skin.

 Excessive oils, environmental pollution, and toxic chemicals can build up to form a layer of grime that damages your skin’s health and 

At the end of the day, cleansing is especially important to take off make up and SPF from sunscreens and daytime moisturizers.

Ideally you should take off make up with a dedicated makeup remover then proceed with a second cleanser.

Here use a cleanser that addresses special skin needs. This one is your skin cleanser more than your makeup remover. Its job is to make sure your skin is clean, balanced and comfortable. You can obviously use one cleanser for both cleanses if you have budget concerns. Just buy the best that you can afford when you can afford it.

Without further here ado here are some top picks for second cleansers.
