Cleansing is hardly the most glamorous step in a skin-care lineup, but in many ways, it’s the most important. Whether your skin-care regimen consists of a basic wash-and-moisture duo or it qualifies as something of a ritual, starting with a fresh canvas is a necessary step to reap the benefits of all that skin-loving goodness you layer on afterward.
If the idea of splashing water on your face just after opening your eyes (or right before shutting them) makes you squirm a little, here are 31 refreshingly pampering reasons you will reconsider and splash away. This elite breed of all-star face cleansers includes award-winning classics that are gentle as can be, dermatologist favorites that pack the benefits, and some fancy finds that give your skin the royal treatment.
So, what sets this skin-cleaning lineup apart from all other cleansers and puts them in a league of their own? The answer lies in the meticulous formulations that combine dirt-eliminating, makeup-melting cleansers with impressively pampering hydration that leaves skin refreshingly clean but not over-stripped. The result is a fresh, supple, glowy complexion that turns an everyday chore into a twice-daily treat.
