Washing your face is probably the first and most important step in any skincare routine

But, did you know that washing your face till it's squeaky clean is a huge no-no? You could actually be overwashing your face, which could lead to a host of new problems, as you are stripping your skin of its natural oil and lipids.

This may cause more harm than good to your skin because it will generate more oil to compensate for the loss. Ultimately, you risk making your skin more sensitive in the long run, eek!

That's why Neutrogena improved their Deep Clean range formula to include 8% Amino Micellar, a gentle yet effective ingredient that will cleanse your face without compromising your skin barrier

It comes in five variants and one makeup remover, so you'll definitely find the right cleanser for your skin!

Check out the range:
- Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser
- Neutrogena Deep Clean Acne Foaming Cleanser

Powered by Amino Micellar Technology, the cleansers in this range can remove 99% impurities, and retain 99% of your skin's moisture levels*, wah!

Not only that, Neutrogena's improved formula boasts low pH levels, so you can be sure that your skin won't be thrown off balance after using these cleansers. With a rich foam texture, you'll be able to enjoy a gentle deep cleanse, removing all the buildup and grime from the day.

Wondering what's special about Neutrogena's Amino Micellar Technology? Here's what's up:

1. These cleansers have Amino Foam, powered by Amino Micellar Technology

Amino acids make up around 40% of our skin's natural composition. Since the Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser contains amino acids that have a comparable structure to human skin, the foam gently removes dirt and oil without damaging the skin's moisture barrier.

Also, the cleanser's amino acid contents make it an amazing skin hydrator. It helps skin retain its moisture while cleaning up to 99%* of dirt and micro-pollutants! Wah. Unlike soap-based cleansing foams, this cleanser with Amino Foam doesn't strip the skin of its natural oils, making it a great choice for all skin types.

Cleansing your skin is a crucial step in any skincare regimen, and here's why. From sebum buildup to exposure to pollutants, dust, and even free radicals, your skin goes through a lot in one day. It's important to wash your face before moving on to the next step, so that you can remove any trace of filth or buildup that could cause clogged pores, acne, or premature ageing.

The awesome thing about the Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser is that 85% of users experienced noticeably improved pores after cleansing*!

3. It's got a low pH value that's super skin-friendly

Our skin's mantle is usually between 4.5 to 6.5 on the pH scale, meaning it's mildly acidic. Your skin serves as a protective barrier from external aggressors, and if your skin's pH value is disrupted, your skin will be less resilient and more sensitive, yikes! That means it could be prone to skin conditions like ageing, fine lines, dryness, and even acne.

Fortunately, the Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser is dermatologically-tested to have a formula that matches your skin's pH levels. All you just gotta do is lather it up into a rich, creamy foam, and enjoy your cleansing experience.

Psst... Neutrogena also included two new variants in this range, one cleanser and a micellar gel makeup remover

If your skin tends to be a little reactive and you need some of that soothing action, the Neutrogena Deep Clean Soothing Foaming Cleanser and the Neutrogena Deep Clean Micellar Gel might be right up your alley.

Both products are enriched with 0.5% Cica Complex, while the Micellar Gel is a low-friction makeup remover that can help remove your makeup without irritating your skin.

Cica has slowly been rising in its rank in the skincare industry as a potent antioxidant that's suitable for sensitive skin. Also known as centella asiatica, this ingredient can help strengthen the skin barrier, and has anti-aging properties, woohoo!

You can get your hands on these cleansers at Watsons, Guardian, Shopee, or Lazada today
