If you ever had that dry feeling after washing your face with the usual one that lathers up, a cleansing cream might be an alternative. I discovered recently they are a kinder, more nourishing alternative when your face can’t handle the sulfates—the usual ingredient that makes your facial wash bubble but is also a chemical that tends to be harsh.
I recommend to use a cleansing cream in the morning as there’s usually not much to wash off after waking up. It doesn’t disrupt the natural balance of your skin so you can let the natural oils do their job. After that, you’re free to do your usual beauty routine.
