The Best Cleanser For Dry Skin 

Dry skin can often feel tight, stretched, itchy or flaky, and needs a lot of moisture to help soothe it.  However, cleansing can often strip the skin, leaving it even drier than before. Soit’s best to use a hydrating cleanser that will help the skin to retain moisture.  

 

Face wash for dry skin 

We recommend the Sanctuary Spa Moisture Burst Facial WashBursting with hydrating Jojoba Beads, moisturising Almond Oil and gentle Cleansing Actives, it washes away dirt, impurities and makeupSkin is left feeling beautifully cleansed, with a fresh, dewy glow. 

Cleanser for dry skin 

Alternatively, try the Sanctuary Spa Melt Away Cleansing OilNot only is it formulated with gentle Cleansing Actives that melt away makeup and dirt, but its infused with a nourishing blend of Oils and Vitamin E. These key ingredients help to strengthen the skin barrier, allowing skin to retain water and stay hydrated for longer 

 

Therapist’s Tip: After cleansing, apply a deeply hydrating face cream infused with Hyaluronic Acid. This will bind water molecules to the skin, locking in hydration.  

The Best Cleanser For Oily And Combination Skin 

For oily skin, we recommend opting for a cleanser formulated with oil-absorbing ingredients that help to reduce shine, such as charcoal.  

 

Is charcoal good for oily skin?  

Charcoal works like a magnet, drawing out impurities, excess sebum and dead skin cells from deep within your pores. It also helps to wash away makeup, dirt and oil on the skin’s surface, working to reduce shine. 

 

What is the best charcoal cleanser? 

Our Warming Charcoal Detox Wash is a purifying, non-drying and warming daily face wash. Combining detoxifying Charcoal with calming Chamomile Oil, it draws out impurities and leaves skin feeling soothed. Its unique formula transforms from a refreshing gel, to a silky oil, to a purifying foamhelping to unclog pores, reduce shine and remove excess oil for a smoother and clearerlooking complexion. 

The Best Cleanser For Dull Skin 

 

If your skin lacks radiancetry using an exfoliating cleanser that washes away daily grime, while also promoting skin cell renewal. The Sanctuary Spa Triple Cleansing Mousse is a great choice! 

 

This daily foaming face wash works on three levels: 

  • AHAs help to loosen dead skin cells that have settled on the skin’s surface. 
  • Micro Fine Exfoliating Powder scrubs away those dead cells, to reveal the fresh, glowing skin beneath.  
  • Gentle Cleansing Actives remove dirt, impurities and makeup to leave skin feeling soft and cleansed.  

Simply massage onto damp skin, wash off, and admire your fresh, radiant complexion!  

The Best Cleanser For Sensitive Skin 

 

If your skin is prone to irritation, redness and sensitivity, we recommend using a gentle foaming cleanser that lifts away impurities and doesn’t require scrubbingOpt for formulas infused with calming and soothing ingredients that are kind to skin, like our Foaming Micellar Cleansing Water. 

 

While the Micelles act like magnets to gently lift away dirt and makeup, soothing Rose Water and nourishing Argan Oil help to reduce irritation and calm redness. Simply apply one pump onto a cotton pad or reusable makeup wipe, then sweep across the face and eyes. Expect skin to feel cleansed and refreshed. 

 

Therapist’s Tip: To prevent irritation, dry sensitive skin by carefully dabbing it with a towel.  

A skincare routine should always be tailored to your skin type – and that starts with using the correct cleanser. Treating specific skin concerns will result in a clearer and healthier-looking complexion. Explore our full range of cleansers on our website.
