Having sensitive skin is a pain. There are limitations to the types of products you can use, as most brands tend to be too harsh, and there are few skincare scenarios where this rings truer than when purchasing a face wash.

Face washes are an essential first step that your regimen needs, yet plenty of those available on beauty store shelves tend to contain abrasive ingredients that already strip what little moisture your skin has, leaving your complexion feeling taut after each rinse.

With the availability of milk cleansers, however, you no longer have to suffer the same plight.

Milk cleansers are not a new innovation, but they are rarely as acknowledge as their foamy counterpart. Created from an emulsion of water and fat, this ultra-hydrating cleanser option actually hydrates your skin during a wash as it removes dirt and residual makeup. It is also one of the most gentle face wash types there is, so adopt a milky cleanser if you haven’t yet. It’ll do wonders for your sensitive skin.
