Cleansing the skin or face both morning and night will leave you with smooth, clean, and healthy skin, allowing your toners, moisturisers, masques and serums to penetrate further for a professional level of clean. Environmental pollutants, cosmetics, sunblock, and make-up all combine with skin's natural sebum (oil) - forming a thick, waxy coating by the middle of the day, which can contribute to skin issues such as blackheads, breakouts, and sensitivity. Our skin is far dirtier than we realise, which is why cleansing your skin is a fundamental step in your daily routine. We also apply makeup and sunscreens daily, which should be removed to prevent skin congestion. In addition, we produce natural oils which can cause dirt and pollution to stick to the surface. Our skin is far dirtier than we realise, which is why cleansing your skin is a fundamental step in your daily routine.
Double cleansing is the secret to healthy, truly clean skin. The Dermalogica Double Cleanse easily removes layers of built-up make-up, products and oily debris, allowing your second cleanse to penetrate even further, for a professional level of clean. Use either PreCleanse for your first face cleanse to melt away oily build-up, then follow with a skin specific face cleanser for your second cleanse, to deep clean and create a healthy foundation for the rest of your skin care products.
Along with promoting healthy, clear skin, cleansing helps address specific skin needs. If you experience dry patches or flakiness, you’ll find cleansing the skin locks in moisture, keeping your skin supple and hydrated for a healthy, youthful glow.

Face Wash & Face Cleanser FAQs
are facial cleansers good for the skin?
Yes, as long as you use a face wash that’s designed to respect the skin’s acidic PH. Clean skin functions more efficiently, experiences fewer skin concerns and can also absorb treatment products better. Not cleaning the skin with a face wash, leaves the skin vulnerable to conditions such as breakouts, congestion, inflammation and premature skin ageing. Regardless of your skin type or main concerns, a facial cleanser is an essential part of every skincare routine. Removing all traces of makeup, pollutants, dirt, grime, and excess oil, our soap-free, PH balanced face washes gently and thoroughly cleanse the skin while preventing skin conditions and meeting skincare needs.
do I need a cleanser?
Absolutely! A facial cleanser is a non-negotiable in every skincare regimen. Unlike makeup wipes that contain alcohol and drying ingredients, or soap that is alkaline and disrupts the skin’s natural acidic barrier, Dermalogica’s PH balanced, soap-free range of face washes effectively remove dirt, makeup and impurities, while respecting the skin’s barrier and prepping the skin for deeper penetration of subsequent products in your routine.

how should you use a cleanser on your face?
Using a face cleanser is a simple step to incorporate into your skincare regime. Here are some of our top tips to using a facial cleanser:
- Start the first step of your two-part routine which begins with a n oil cleanser. Massage the oil cleanser into skin to attract and thoroughly dissolve excess buildup.
- Apply a small amount of prescribed cleanser onto your fingertips or a facial washcloth and gently massage it into your skin in a circular motion, this will remove any residual impurities.
- Pat dry with a soft facial towel.
For best results, use a face cleanser twice daily - once in the morning and once in the evening to keep your skin clean, healthy and glowing all day long. However, this frequency can differ depending on the face wash you select, so be sure to read the directions on your face cleanser and follow the recommended usage.
