Good to know about cleansers.
The three primary categories of cleanser are:
Wipe off cleansers, such as cold creams and lotions.
Water soluble cleansers.
Wipe off cleansers tend to be heavier than water soluble cleansers and require
lots of wiping. Elastin - the protein that's responsible for flexibility in
healthy skin - can be damaged with too much pulling. Regular use of wipe off
cleansers pulls unnecessarily at the skin and delicate eye area.
Soaps can be irritating. Many women enjoy the foaming action of soaps but it
doesn't mean your skin is any cleaner! Foaming cleansers can also be drying.
Soaps often have high alkaline contents - a high pH compared to your skin's.
This means that soaps can have the adverse affect of irritating your skin.
