Which face wash is best for sensitive skin? The key to keeping sensitive skin clean is to treat it gently. Mokosh Skincare is formulated to be non-irritating and restorative. Gentle exfoliation with the Facial Cleanser, Exfoliator and Mask and cleansing with the Makeup Remover & Cleansing Oil will keep your sensitive skin clean and its acid mantle intact. Using linoleic acid-rich moisturizers like Pure Face & Body Cream will help your skin retain moisture, fortify its protective barrier, and keep healthy. According to Mokosh founder Marion O'Leary, “Using preservative-free skin care will leave our skin microbiome undisturbed and improve the resilience of our skin's microbiological barrier. In the same way that an all natural diet rich in nutrients provides our body with the best fuel, a natural synthetic-free, preferably certified organic skin care regime allows our skin to get on with doing the job it does best."
Should you wash your face or exfoliate first? Cleansing and exfoliating are both essential parts of a good skincare routine. It’s best to wash your face first to remove dirt, sweat, makeup and follow with your favorite exfoliator. How often you exfoliate depends on the type of product you use. The Mokosh Facial Cleanser, Exfoliator and Mask is a gentle cleanser that can be used daily if desired.
What is the best face wash? The best face wash depends in part on your skin type as well as personal preferences. If you have dry skin or sensitive skin, you may prefer oil cleansing whereas those with oily or combination skin sometimes prefer a gel or cream cleanser. Each of the face washes and cleansers in our collection are super gentle and effective. Regardless of what type of cleanser you choose - choose one with ingredients that are good for your skin rather than harsh and drying.
Can I perform oil cleansing if I have oily skin? Official answer from Mokosh Skincare. "While oil cleansing will benefit all skin types, if you have oily skin, we have some very good news! Oil cleansing will benefit oily skin because (i) it helps to keep your pores clear, and pore blockage is one of the main causes of acne (read more here) , (ii) it helps remove excess sebum without damaging your skin’s barrier. (iii) if you oil cleanse with the right oils, you can actually help reduce the amount of sebum produced by oily skin. Oils abundant in linoleic acid not only help restore the skin’s barrier, they can also regulate the amount of sebum your skin produces, and have also been shown to reduce the size of microcomedones, or blackheads.”
