Best Morning Cleanser: Face The Future Team Recommends

From morning, noon and night, the team at Face The Future essentially live and breathe skincare. Here, some of the team share their best morning cleansers to use to start their day right...

Why is it so important to cleanse your skin in the morning?

Whilst you catch up on your zeds, your skin gets to work sloughing away dead skin cells, repairing damage and building up collagen. This recovery process means that when you wake up in the morning, your skin is layered with excess dead skin cells and sebum. If you don't remove this oil and debris with a cleanser in the morning, your skin's surface becomes congested which could lead to breakouts or a rough, bumpy skin texture. 

What should I look for in a morning cleanser?

Most of the time we're rushing in the morning, so your morning cleanse should be quick and effective with an easy application. Look for lightweight gel or foam formulations with pH-balancing properties and a refreshing scent to help awaken your senses. 

Face The Future Team's Best Morning Cleansers: 

CeraVe Foaming Cleanser

"I have tried more or less every cleanser we have, and my favourite is the Cerave foaming cleanser. It provides a deep cleanse and completely clears my pores without being too harsh or irritating. The Hyaluronic Acid also helps to maintain hydration within the skin meaning I can use it daily. It also lathers up nicely meaning a little goes a long way. My makeup also sits nicely on top of it."

- Mia, Customer Services Manager 

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser

"I need a morning cleanser that’s quick, easy and gives my skin the much needed TLC for the day ahead. This is why I love the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser. My skin feels hydrated, prepped and ready for the day."

- Georgia, Brand Planning & Relationship Manager 

iS Clinical Cleansing Complex

"I love this cleanser as it smells amazing. It deeply cleanses yet is gentle on the skin. Being a skincare lover I have tried hundreds of brands and this is the best cleanser I have used. It helps with my acne too as it contains Salicylic Acid and vitamin A which is essential for skin health. It is suitable for all skin types and being a Hollywood brand it is a firm favourite with celebrities too, so if it is good enough for them, it's good enough for me!"

- Amber, Customer Services Executive 

Medik8 Gentle Cleanse

"My skin is very sensitive so the Medik8 Gentle Cleanse is perfect to help soothe my skin in the morning. It's 100% soap and alcohol free so it doesn't leave my skin with that awful tight feeling. The pump foaming action is super quick and easy and I love how it lathers onto the skin. I've also noticed that I get fewer breakouts when I use this morning cleanser consistently."
