Facial Cleansers

Men’s Facial Cleansers

Let's clarify, to keep your skin healthy and nourished, it's important to wash your face. That's what we like to call a skincare routine 101. But to really get the best effect, you're going to want to use something more than just a bar of soap.

Facial cleansers also act as a toner, giving life back to dull skin by washing away dead skin cells and impurities that cause imbalances on the surface of your skin. Some face cleansers can also encourage cell regeneration, which keeps your skin feeling and looking new and youthful. They can also be specially-formulated to give your skin the care it needs throughout the year. During the colder winter months, lock in moisture with richer oil-based products. Come summer, you can switch to a cleanser that is lighter on the skin. As well as these moisturising properties, a good men’s face wash can prevent breakouts and blackheads for those with acne-prone skin.

Thanks to modern innovations, there are now a plethora of facial cleansers available from high quality, premium brands that offer a wide range of skin nourishing benefits suited to all different skin types. Some of the types of cleanser we stock here at The Modern Man are; Foaming Cleansers (these require water and turn into a lather, leaving a bubbly texture on your face before rinsing off), Exfoliating Cleansers (these are brittle and tough on skin, working hard to remove the impurities, making your skin extra soft), Micellar Water (taking the world by storm with its recent technology, designed to gently cleanse and tone skin without the hassle of rinsing). One of the top benefits of using a good cleanser are the hydrating properties. If paired with a moisturiser, you can combat dry skin and even oily skin with minimal effort. For those with oily skin, although this sounds backwards, why not try a Cleansing Oil. Using an oil cleanser will help regulate your body’s oil production and, in turn, reduce the oiliness of your skin. If texture is something you're looking for, check out our range of Gel Cleansers, nice and cold when applied to the skin providing a cushion of moisture!

It is important to select the right facial cleanser for you. You need to consider your skin type, whether you have sensitive skin, combination skin, or you're looking for something to help with the appearance of fine lines. Hyaluronic acid is a top ingredient that will assist with reducing the appearance of ageing. Combination skin types may find blemish control is an important factor, you may want to try a brightening toning face wash.
