Why Foaming Washes Are Awesome

Because lathering up is way more fun—and clean!

Your skin is your first line of defense—it shields you from pollution, dust, and bacteria. Return the favor by making sure it stays clean and healthy on the surface by using a foaming wash. It’s the ideal cleanser since it’s tough on oil and dirt and gentle on your complexion. Still need convincing? Read on to discover more reasons about why it rocks!


1. They keep your face undoubtedly clean.

Unlike soap, you won’t second-guess whether your skin is really clear of pore-clogging dirt and oil post-wash. Foaming facial washes are formulated to strip away dirt, oil, and residue effectively, so you feel totally refreshed and tingly clean after.


2. They’re great for problematic skin.

If you have oily and acne-prone skin, there are foaming facial washes that are formulated specifically to keep oil at bay while cleansing the skin. Just be on the lookout for sudsers that are infused with salicylic acid and scrub beads, which absorbs and removes oil and other impurities.


3. A little goes a long way.

One of the best things about foaming washes is that you don’t need a lot of product on your skin, so it’ll actually save you more in the long run. All you need is a tiny dollop to get a rich lather worked up.


4. They’re mild.

New formulas are popping up to oxygenate skin and lock in moisture, so you can wash without worrying about overdrying. Some washes are in gel formula which are proven to be more hydrating. Because of this, women with sensitive skin can definitely make the switch from clear cleansers.


5. They’re great for double-cleansing.

Because of their gentle formula, you can use foaming washes to clear out remaining residues after removing heavy makeup. Too much effort for you? Look for foaming washes that contain vita-cleansers—they double as a makeup remover by clearing away dirt and grime while restoring your skin's natural oils.
