Mild facial cleansing does not usually go as deep into the skin as a deep cleansing face wash does, but acts more on the skin surface. Mild face wash is perfect for dry, normal, sensitive or irritated skin. Mild facial cleansing usually has a milky consistency, feels comfortable on the skin and does not cause irritation or redness. If you have skin that is dry or stressed, if you easily get red in the face, then you should choose a mild facial cleanser. Mild face wash often contains soothing and cooling components that soothe the skin and reduce redness.
Mild facial cleansing can also be used for oily and combination skin during the winter, when the skin feels dry and tight. Mild face wash is less likely to wash out fats and retains water in the skin. In the same way, a deep cleansing face wash can be used to advantage on dry and sensitive skin during the summer, when the skin sweats and produces more fat.
