Our round-up of es­sen­tial cleansers

We’ve al­ready waved good­bye to mi­crobeads in skin­care prod­ucts – now it’s likely that fa­cial wipes are also on their way out, after the gov­ern­ment an­nounced plans to ban non-biodegrad­able wipes. To be hon­est, we’re rather pleased – not only will Mother Earth ben­e­fit from this law, so will your skin.

While fa­cial wipes are un­de­ni­ably handy for fes­ti­vals and trips abroad when your hand-lug­gage liq­uids are lim­ited, as your wed­ding day nears, it’s es­sen­tial to use a proper cleanser that will be more ef­fec­tive than a wipe. The best cleansers not only re­move make-up, they also nour­ish, ex­fo­li­ate and hy­drate your skin.

“Cleans­ing the skin is es­sen­tial for a healthy com­plex­ion,” says Noella Gabriel, co-founder of Elemis. “Make-up and en­vi­ron­men­tal ag­gres­sors con­gest pores, and face cleanser works to re­move these pol­lu­tants, as well as dead skin cells. Cleanse ev­ery day, morn­ing and night, even if you haven’t worn make-up. Wa­ter should be just warm – if too hot, it will ag­gra­vate pores, while wa­ter that’s too cold won’t re­move prod­uct as ef­fec­tively.”
