Cleansing is hardly the most glamorous step in a skincare routine. Yet, in many ways, it’s the most important. Whether your skincare regimen consists of a basic wash, tone and moisturise 3-step routine or it is a long-drawn 10-step ritual, starting with a fresh, clean face is always step 1.
Now, if you just look at the ingredients list on the back of your favourite face wash, you might find some pretty impossible to pronounce ones. Make the switch to a natural face wash that boasts of a simpler formula and naturally occurring ingredients. From plant-based ones to vegan options, there’s enough and more for every skin type and skin concern.
It is hardly surprising that the best face wash has zero chemicals and harmful ingredients. While the choice for your favourite face wash may depend on factors such as skin type, issues and goals, a natural face wash that suits both your skin and your budget shouldn’t be so hard to find—not with our list, at least!
