At the heart of any great skincare regime is a great cleansing system. Dr Daisy Bennett says that ‘face wash is a good start for any successful skincare routine’, and that’s especially true for those with oily or blemish-prone skin. Discover why La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar Purifying Cleansing Gel is the perfect start to your skincare routine to tackle blemishes with total efficacy…
What to look for when choosing a face wash for blemish-prone skin?
When choosing a face wash Dr Daisy says it's best to select products which are ‘specifically formulated for acne-prone skin.’ This is because they are more likely to contain spot-fighting ingredients, whilst also being sensitive for skin.
Effaclar Purifying Cleansing Gel is a facial wash with a gel-like consistency, which becomes a foaming face wash once lathered. Specifically formulated with oily and blemish-prone skin in mind, the gel purifies skin leaving it feeling clean.
How to use Effaclar Cleansing Gel?
Effaclar Purifying Cleansing Gel is gentle enough to use twice a day. Incorporate it into your morning and evening regime before toning and moisturising. The gel is easy to work into a lather and applies smoothly onto skin. Massage the lathered gel into your skin in circular motions before rinsing. You will be left with an instant clean-feel sensation, and skin will feel soothed and fresh.
What ingredients are used in Effaclar Cleansing Gel?
The Effaclar Cleansing Gel formula is enriched with La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water as well as zinc pidolate. The addition of these ingredients makes the formula kinder to our skin's natural physiology, making the gel less likely to aggravate sensitive skin types. The paraben-free, soap-free guarantees, along with the minimal list of ingredients make this a go-to product for those with skin concerns.
Those with blemish prone skin often have to contend with sensitive skin too. It can be a concern when trying to clear up blemishes, that products will irritate your skin and exacerbate existing problems. Effaclar Cleansing Gel has been submitted to stringent product testing to ensure that by the time you try it, it has been put through its sensitive skin paces.
Once you’ve sorted out the foundation of your skincare regime, you can start to build up products around it to treat blemishes and imperfections. Add the Effaclar Gel Clarifying Lotion to your routine to compliment the cleanser and gently tone acne-prone skin. Follow up with Effaclar DUO [+], this blemish buster will lessen the appearance of blemishes and imperfections, all whilst keeping skin matte and hydrated.
