Top 10 Best Facial Cleansers in Malaysia 2022

The first step of any skin care routine is cleansing. This is because cleansing the face is necessary in order to remove any filth and grime that is on the skin’s surface due to environmental pollutants in the air. It is crucial to cleanse the face to remove the makeup that you have been wearing as leaving makeup on the face for too long or overnight can clog the pores and damage the skin’s barrier.

Without the use of a facial cleanser, the dirt and impurities will enter your pores. This will then cause irritations on the skin which would then lead to skin breakouts. There are plenty of facial cleansers that have been created and are available to purchase. Here are the top 10 facial cleansers in Malaysia.
