Winter can be very brutal on our skin; the dryness, cold, and wind can wreak havoc. The good news is that we don’t need to allow our skin to fall victim to the driest season of all.
Of course, using hydrating, rich creams is a must. But, we need to take a closer look at the cleansers we are using twice a day. Gel foaming cleansers can feel very purifying, but they are often extremely stripping and drying to the skin. After we strip the natural oils, we then have to compensate by slathering our faces with the most moisturizing creams we can get a hold of. If you suffer from dry or sensitive skin, a milk cleanser might be exactly what you need in your skin care regimen.
Many brands offer a milk cleanser.
Dr.Hauschka Soothing Cleansing Milk
I personally love the Dr.Hauschka Soothing Cleansing Milk. It is best suited for sensitive, dry, or very dry skin.
This cleanser removes impurities without causing any irritation. This soothing milk can be used in the morning and at night, and is wonderful at removing makeup.
The Bentonite Clay pulls out any impurities, but soothes the skin at the same time. The grain extract helps to purify the skin while also delivering nourishing vitamins.
This product also contains Jojoba and Sweet Almond Oils to maintain your skin’s moisture. They even say that this product can be used as a shaving cream!
My favorite things about Dr.Haushka products are that they focus on using natural ingredients while taking a holistic approach.
