There are many skincare products on the market, aiming to cleanse your skin, which can make it all seem a little daunting at first.
That’s why in this article we are going to concentrate on foaming cleansers, what they do, their benefits, and what skin type they are most suited to.
What is a foaming cleanser?
A foaming cleanser is a cleanser that foams and isn’t of a milky or creamy texture. You add water to the cleanser which helps it to work into a lather, and wash away your impurities and makeup, leaving you with clean and refreshed skin.
There are many foaming cleansers designed to target specific areas of concern, but they aren’t for every skin type.
What skin type is best suited for foaming cleansers?
Oily, combination and normal skin types can normally use these styles of cleanser.
Dry and sensitive skin types can sometimes find foaming cleansers to be too harsh on their delicate skin. Dry skin types find they can strip their skin of the little moisture they already have, while on sensitive skins foaming cleanser can be irritating.
There are many foaming cleansers on the market and most have a target skin type or concern that they’ve been developed for.
For example, lot’s of teenagers tend to use a foaming cleanser as many claim they can help to target acne, which a lot of teenagers and adults suffer with on and off throughout their life. This in many cases is true, because often thicker, creamier cleansers can be too much for teenage and spotty skin.

To use a foaming cleanser, you need to apply a dollop into the palm of your clean hands and add water. Lather together and apply to your face, massaging in upward circles, covering all areas of your face.
The longer you can do this for the better, but if in a rush, twenty to thirty seconds will be fine. Once you’re finished massaging the cleanser into your facial skin, rinse away with warm water on a flannel.
