How to Pick a Cleanser for Dry Skin

Q) What Type of Cleanser Do I Need If . . . I Have Dry Skin?



Picking the right cleanser is almost as important as picking the right man. In fact having the right cleanser will probably help you pick a better man. You'll be all radiant and beautiful, he'll be instantly attracted. It's very important stuff. Which is why I've enlisted the help of Emma Hobson, Chief Skin Detective at the International Dermal Institute to help us in our Picking the Right Cleanser Masterclass. We've already covered oily skin, now it's onto dry.

A) Dry skin basically means you're not producing enough oil. People often confuse it with dehydration, when the skin is lacking in moisture, but this is not the case. You need a mild creamy cleanser to help replace the oils.

Try Aesop Purifying Facial Cream Cleanser ($38), Dermalogica Essential Cleansing Solution ($53) or Trilogy Cream Cleanser ($36).
