Which cleanser should I choose according to my skin's needs?

Facial cleansing is the first step towards beautiful skin. It frees the epidermis from toxins and impurities (pollution, dust...) accumulated throughout the day, leaving it perfectly clean and ready to receive its day and night treatments, which will be better assimilated and more effective. When it comes to facial cleansers, there's a wide choice: lotion, cleansing milk, micellar water, gel, foam, oil... It's not easy to know which one is best for your skin type.

But when it comes to choosing your skincare products, there's only one criterion that counts: your skin's needs. Whether we're talking about cleansers, serums or creams, the properties and formulas of cosmetic products differ according to your skin type. Your skin's characteristics may change from one period of your life to the next, or with the seasons, so you need to constantly readjust your beauty routine to meet the needs of your face or body as closely as possible.

Here are a few tips to help you choose the right facial cleanser for your skin type.

My skin is prone to imperfections

Does your skin often suffer from small imperfections, such as blackheads, white cysts, red pimples or even acne? Is it prone to shine and difficult to mattify, even with make-up? It has all the characteristics of combination to oily skin.
