Difference between foam face wash and cream face wash
A face wash is an essential item for daily face washing. Among them, the two most popular types are foam cleansers that wash with foam and cream cleansers that clean without foaming. Let’s take a look at the differences between foam face wash and cream face wash, each with its own characteristics.
[Difference between foam face wash and cream face wash 1] Burden on the skin
With foam face wash, if you can lather properly, the foam will act as a cushion and reduce the burden on your skin when washing your face. On the other hand, cream cleansers do not have foam cushions, so friction occurs, which may damage your skin.

However, some people may wonder if the dirt is completely removed by simply washing the face with foam. Also, people who are concerned about dry skin may be concerned about the tightness after washing.
In the case of cream face wash, you can wash your face by sliding your finger on areas of concern such as the nose and chin, so you can feel that the dirt has been thoroughly removed. In addition, many of them contain a lot of moisturizing ingredients, and the texture of the skin after washing is moist.

If you massage too much with cream face wash, the friction will be a burden on your skin and you may be worried about dryness.
However, even with a foam face wash that is less stressful on the skin, if the face wash is not lathered enough or takes too long to lather, the pre-washed and wet skin will dry out. increase.
Therefore, it is also recommended to use a “foaming facial cleanser” that can be used in a foamy state from the beginning.
Tips for choosing a foam face wash
A foaming face wash that thoroughly removes sebum and dirt with plenty of foam. But to keep your skin clean, not just any foam cleanser will do. Here are some points to keep in mind when choosing a face wash.
[How to choose a foam face wash 1] Choose one that suits your skin type
Choose a foam cleanser that suits your skin type, whether it’s dry, sensitive or oily. Also, check the ingredients of the product. It is also recommended to use several foam face washes depending on the season and skin condition.

[How to choose a foam face wash 3] Choose by the form of face wash and ease of lathering
There are various types of foam cleansers, including soaps, foams, gels, and liquids. Choose a type that you can whip yourself. Also, recently, the type of foaming face wash that comes out in a foamy state from the beginning without foaming is also popular.
The correct way to wash your face with foam
Do you know the points you need to pay attention to when washing your face with foam? If you use the wrong facial cleansing method, you may not be able to remove sebum and dirt as expected, and may even damage your skin. From here, I will give a lecture on how to properly wash your face with foam.
[Correct face washing method 1] Create plenty of lather
If you want to gently remove dirt without putting a burden on your skin, it is essential to create plenty of fine bubbles. Place the cleanser on the palm of your hand, add a small amount of water or hot water, and mix to incorporate air as if you were making whipped cream.
For those who are not good at foaming, we recommend using a foaming net or foaming sponge, or choosing a face wash that comes out as foam from the beginning.
[Correct face washing method 2] Do not spend too much time
Quickly wash the hairline, cheeks and chin, focusing on the oily T-zone and around the eyes and mouth where dryness is a concern. Don’t spend too much time washing your face. This is because if you try to remove excess sebum and dirt, you will also remove the oil that your skin needs.
[Correct face washing method 3] Pay attention to the temperature
Be careful of the water temperature when rinsing out the foam. Warm water is the best temperature. Hot water removes too much oil from your skin, which can lead to dry skin. Also, cold water cannot remove excess oil.
[Correct face washing method 4] Do not rub too much
Be careful not to touch your skin with your fingers or palms, wash your face gently so that it is wrapped only in foam as much as possible, and rinse it off. Rubbing too hard with your fingers or palms will cause friction and damage your skin.
