Top 12 Best Cleansing Foams in 2021

best cleansing foams

If there’s one step in your daily skincare routine that you can’t go without, it’s cleaning your face with cleansing foams. Given the huge importance cleansing foams have on our skin, brands across the world are competing to develop formulas to win your heart. Considering the range of options available, navigating your way through to find the best cleanser for your skin is no easy task. Don’t worry, because today we are going to offer you a helping hand to find your cleansing foam soulmate.

Selecting the right cleansing foam for your skin can make all the difference. There are so many cleansers available in the market, from foaming cleansers to oils, milks and balms. A rule of thumb is to always choose your cleansing foam based on the type of skin you have. 

Oily Skin: “Oil Free” is the magic term. Choose an oil-control formula cleansing foam that helps to regulate oil production without leaving the skin too dry.  A formula that balances pH will also slow the growth of bacteria and help prevent breakouts.

Dry Skin: If your skin is often itchy, flaky or generally tight then finding a hydrating face wash especially with glycerin or essential oils is key. 

Sensitive Skin: Lookout for soothing ingredients such as aloe-vera, willow bark, and witch hazel in their cleansers. Avoid cleansers that are mixed with alcohol, colouring, fragrance, paraben and harsh chemicals. 

Combined Skin: A formula that balances a through clean with a focus on hydration. Ideally, the cleansing foam  should help clear away the skin’s oil without stripping the skin or leaving it with that horrible tight feeling. 

Normal Skin: Your options are vast but we recommend cleansers with a range of added perks such as anti-aging or toning properties. 

To get the most out of your cleansing foams, learn to cleanse the clever way. First, cleanse twice a day, once in the morning and once before going to bed. Secondly, “double cleanse” by using a cleansing foam to remove the makeup and dirt on the surface, then do it again the second time for further deep cleansing. Dermatologists also recommend double cleansing to help avoid skin damage and reduce toxins found in the pollution and dirt that blocks pores. A tip when cleansing your face is to massage the foam into your face in small circles to stimulate blood flow and aid detoxification.

With all that in mind, it’s time to find the right cleansing foam and upgrade the first vital step in your skincare routine.

Let’s take a look at some of the best cleansers on the market!
