How to Find the Right Cleanser for Your Skin Type in Winter + IMBB Recommendations

Cleansing is the most vital step in the skin care routine. Having clean skin is the basis of looking good. With winters, dryness hits us hard and cleansers dry out our facial skin. Whether your skin is oily, dry, normal or combination, it needs special care and attention in winters. This winter, choose cleansers wisely based on your skin needs and I will help you decide that.


Dry Skin


Winters are a bane for dry skin unless you take really good care of your skin. Cleansers dry out your already parched skin and leave it feeling stretchy and dehydrated. You need mild cleansers which won’t cause further dryness. Three types of cleansers are best suited for this kind of skin.

Cleansing oil
These are loaded with powerful ingredients that can dissolve makeup and clean your skin very deeply without leaving any dry patches. It is best suited for dry skin and can minimize lines and wrinkles and keep skin glowing.

Our top recommendations are:
L’Oreal Skin Perfection Miracle Cleansing Oil
Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil
Shu Uemura – Skin Purifier Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil
Shu Uemura Blanc Chroma Brightening and Polishing Gentle Cleansing Oil

Cleansing balm
Soothing and hydrating in nature, cleansing balms can save the day for dry skinned beauties. They remove impurities and leave your skin feeling fresh and clean even in harsh winters.

Some great options to try are:
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Balm
Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm
Balm Balm Frankincense Deep Cleansing Balm
Tony Moly Peach Punch Sherbet Cleansing Balm
The Body Shop Chamomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

Cleansing milk
Long before cleansing balms and oils hit the market, the humble cleansing milk was a winter staple. They clean your makeup and remove traces of pollution. Also, they are available at a lot cheaper price than cleansing balms and oils.

Here are some best cleansing milks available:
Lotus Herbals Whiteglow Skin Whitening and Brightening Cleansing Milk
Nature’s Essence Almond And Honey Deep Cleansing Milk
Lotus Herbals Lemonpure Cleansing Milk
L’Oreal Paris Skin Perfection Cleansing & Perfecting Milk
Clarins Cleansing Milk with Gentian

Oily Skin


Winters are rather a good time for oily skinned beauties. The pesky pimples are lessened, your face doesn’t look like a greaseball. But don’t relax as of now, you still need to cleanse it right. Make sure you don’t dry it out further in the dry weather. You can choose the following kind of cleansers.

Crème face wash
Crème face washes don’t dry out skin and leave your skin squeaky clean and supple. Compared to foaming and gel based cleansers, these are mild and non-drying, hence quite suited for winter.

Our recos:
Banjara’s Milk Cream + Olive Super Soft Face Wash
Lakme Blush & Glow Strawberry Cream Face Wash
Olay Regenerist Cream Cleanser
L’Oreal Hydra Total 5 Silky Cream Wash
Himalaya Herbals Fairness Kesar Face Wash

Exfoliating face wash
Face washes with exfoliating granules are good for removing deeply rooted gunk. Also, they save time invested in skincare. Besides that, a two-in-one product makes sure you don’t have to face dryness after washing repeatedly.

Suggestions for exfoliating face washes:
VLCC Watermelon & Bergamot Gentle Exfoliating Face Wash
Jovees Papaya Face Wash
Beauty Formulas Australian Tea Tree Exfoliating Face Wash

Normal Skin


Normal skin too feels dry and rough in winters. You can use cleansers which work well in getting rid of grime and dirt, without causing stretchiness. Depending on their wants and needs, normal skinned girls can use any of the above. Also for removing light makeup on chilly winter nights, cleansing wipes can be a great option.

Some good options are:
Kara Neem and Tea Tree Cleansing and Refreshing Wipes
Nivea Cream Care Makeup Remover Wipes
H2O+ Aqualibrium Cleansing Face Wipes
Beauty Formulas Argan Oil Cleansing Facial Wipes

Sensitive Skin


Sensitivity can flare up anytime, so it’s best that one uses products specially formulated for sensitive skin. Look for a non-drying, non-irritating formula which cleanses gently. AHAGLOW Skin Rejuvenating Face Wash Gel and Cetaphil Cleanser are two options many sensitive skinned ladies swear by.
