And what exactly is a foaming cleanser? Well, it’s pretty much what the name suggests. The famous nurse dermatologist and esthetician said: “A foaming cleanser is a cleanser that foams as soon as it is pumped out. Natalie Aguila. “However, some are called foaming cleansers because they foam beautifully when mixed with water. Foam cleansers contain more water than oil, gel, or cream cleansers.”
They’re not just for Oily, acne prone skin, or combination skin types. Others may use this cleanser, but you’ll want to use it with caution if you have dry skin. “If you have dry or sensitive skin, a foaming cleanser may not be for you,” says Evans. “Cream cleansers are generally best for sensitive or dry skin, which has a higher need to maintain skin’s oil and moisture levels. Creamy cleansers emulsify dirt and are less drying than milk. Foaming face wash.”
But if you love that foaming action and have dry skin, Aguilar says there are new formulations made specifically for sensitive skin, dehydration, or dry skin. And SkinSpirit leading esthetician Karen Fernandez I recommend looking for a foaming cleanser that is very neutral, gentle, has no “additions” (like vitamin C, alpha-hydroxy acid, salicylic acid) and has good moisturizing or oiling properties.
