As one of the cornerstones of your everyday skincare routine, a facial cleanser is essential, no matter what skin type you are. Cleansers slough away dead skin cells, remove dirt and oils from the day, and wash away pollutants. However many conventional cleansers are doing more harm than good, damaging your skin's natural balance and contributing to toxin exposure. To wreap the true benefits of cleansing, choosing the right kind is crucial.
Generally, skin types fall into three categories: combination, oily, and dry. At Edible Beauty, we've designed our super No.1 Belle Frais Cleansing Milk to be compatible for all of these, as it naturally works to balance your skin. This can then be combined with our other products to specifically target skin concerns to achieve the results you want... a flawless, glowing, youthful complexion!
Why this cleanser works for combination skin
If you have combination skin, finding the best facial cleanser is challenging as you need to battle both oily-prone areas and dryness. Signs you have this type of skin include:
- You are oily in some areas (usually your T-zone), but not others
- Some moisturisers will soften your skin, but make your t-zone oily
- Your pores are larger on your nose than on other areas
- Your T-zone tends to shine during warm weather
While it may seem as though finding the best facial cleanser for your skin is difficult, you can turn to natural products that will help you glow. For example, at Edible Beauty, our natural combination skincare range (which includes our cleansing milk) steers clear of the parabens that will make your skin appear shiny.
The No.1 Belle Frais Cleanser is wonderful for combination skin as the salicylic acid helps to unclog bores and balance oil production. Citrus and fruit extracts in the formula also help to reduce oil over production. Using a gentle cleanser ensures that sebaceuous glands on parts of your face that overproducing oil are not aggravated. Hydrating extracts including cucumber and zizyphus ensure dry areas of the skin are nourished and hydrated.
Alongside finding your twice daily facial cleansing, aim for an exfoliator too once or twice a week. By sloughing away dead skin cells using natural ingredients, you can boost your circulation and enhance collagen production, encouraging a gorgeous radiant glow that turns heads.
Why this cleanser works for oily skin
As the name suggests, oily skin is skin that starts to feel greasy quite soon after cleansing. Therefore, when you're trying to find the right cleanser for oily skin, you need one that will lower oil production throughout the day.
In technical terms, your skin is oily due to excess sebum production. Most people find that they encounter this during their teenage years. For some, it will continue through adult life. It arises due to sex hormone fluctuations, which can increase testosterone in both men and women, resulting in the sebaceous glands producing more sebum.
While sebum is excellent for keeping your skin soft, too much of it is a nightmare if you want to maintain a matte look or keep spots at bay. Alongside making your skin shiny, producing too much oil may result in:
- Large pores
- Skin that's shiny, even after applying matte makeup
- An increase in blackheads and whiteheads
- Feeling as though you need to wash your skin frequently
On a more positive note, having oily skin can leave you looking younger for longer. You're not going to experience wrinkles as soon as your non-oily friends and with the right skincare routine, you'll glow.
To achieve this, using a cleanser for oily skin is essential. The right cleanser will reduce the surface bacteria that works with sebum to produce blackheads and whiteheads. Similarly, it will dry your skin slightly, without taking away the benefits of your natural hue. At Edible Beauty Australia, we offer a range of natural products for oily skin, including our Belle Frais Cleansing Milk that’ll help you stay blemish-free while rejuvenating the natural assets Mother Nature gave you.
Our cleanser contains salicylic acid and citrus fruit extracts which helps to unclog bores and balance oil production. Citrus and fruit extracts in the formula also help to reduce oil over production. The No.1 Belle Frais Cleansing Milk is purifying whilst also being hydrating which ensures that the skin is not stripped of its natural oils. Cleansers which dry the skin can also exacerbate oil product as the skin overcompensates by overproducing sebum, hence aggravating oily skin issues.
Why this cleanser works for dry skin
Dry skin is one of the rarer skin types. When you do have it, using the right cleanser for dry skin can make a significant difference to your overall appearance. Dry skin can vary according to your condition, but some of the common signs include:
- Your skin feels tight after you have a bath, shower, or go swimming
- You experience flaking and peeling
- You often experience itching sensations
- Your skin features patches of redness
- Your skin looks visibly rough
Finding a cleanser for dry skin carries significant benefits. The aim of a great cleanser is to reduce the presence of factors that cause spots and dullness. Unfortunately, this often means drying your skin out. At Edible Beauty Australia, we combined science and nature, focusing on using natural botanicals that benefit and protect your skin - leading to our hydrating skincare range.
The No.1 Belle Frais Cleanser works perfectly for dry skin, using ingredients which act as powerful cleansers without impacting your skin's natural hydration. It is a very gentle yet purifying cleanser with a coconut milk base and hydrating Wattleseed and brightening fruit extracts (Strawberry and Apple). Many cleansers, (even natural ones), can be too foaming which strips the skin of its natural oils, they can also contain hidden toxins, fragrances or even harsh essential oils which are irritants and can promote dryness and irritation. Cucumber oil and zizyphus extract calm and soothe the skin to reduce irritation.
At Edible Beauty Australia, we tailor each of our products to meet our customers' skin types. Whether you fall into the oily, combined, or dry category, we'll provide beauty-boosting solutions that draw on nature's best ingredients.
