Cleansing is the most important step in any good skincare routine but finding the right face cleanser can be a challenge. There are a variety of cleansers available to choose from, including gel, cream, oil, balm, foam, clay, micellar water etc.
The first step is knowing your skin type and skin concerns and choosing a cleanser that is appropriate for your skin type and needs.
I have combination skin which is also prone to congestion and dehydration so I tend to go for oil, balm or gel cleansers. Here are some of my favourites from LoveLula.
They all use natural and organic ingredients so won’t irritate or harm your skin.

Infused with organic rose geranium essential oil, it helps to restore the skin’s natural balance and clear a dull, sluggish complexion, whilst aloe vera, frankincense, vitamin E and glycerin reduce inflammation and irritation, re-hydrate and soften the skin.
