Cleansing balms are concentrated cleansers that remove dirt and impurities without stripping your skin of its natural oils. Cleansing balms are so gentle on the skin that they are suitable for all skin types and concerns. It’s especially beneficial for people who have dry, dehydrated, or sensitive skin. They are effective for these skin types because, unlike gel cleansers, they provide an immediate increase in moisture to the skin. This keeps the skin nourished and soft without causing irritation. It is a common misconception that cleansing balms are only beneficial to people with dry skin. In reality, oily skin types can benefit because the oils in the balm gently break down excess oil on the skin without over-drying it.

There are numerous ways to wash your face, ranging from gels and foams to scrubs and oils, but there are several reasons why you might prefer to use a cleansing balm over any other type of cleanser. Japanese cleansing balms are an excellent first step in any daily skincare regimen. They should be on your beauty radar. Another important advantage of cleansing balms is their ability to remove makeup. They thoroughly clean your pores and can be used in place of makeup wipes. Furthermore, because they have gentler formulas and often natural ingredients, you can use them to safely remove makeup from around your eyes.

How to use a cleansing balm

A cleansing balm is similar to a regular cleanser that can be used both during the day and at night because they have a thicker, creamier texture. Here are the steps to using the cleansing balm properly:

  1. Squeeze a small amount of cleansing balm into your hands and warm it up by rubbing it between your palms. Then, with your fingertips, gently massage it all over your face, including around your eyes.
  2. After you have rubbed the balm into your skin thoroughly, dampen your fingers with warm water and massage your face again.
  3. Rinse your hands and soak a towel in warm water. Wipe away the cleansing balm gently, soaking the towel again as it cools or becomes saturated with the product.
  4. Allow your face to air dry or gently pat it dry with a soft and clean cloth.
