Choose the Cleanser That’s Right for You

Cleansers work to free your face of unwanted dirt, oil, and debris—without stripping away the top layer. But to find the proper facial cleanser, first you have to know your skin type. Are you dry, oily, combination, or sensitive? Our guide helps to find the cleanser fit for you to unclog, exfoliate, and purify your complexion.

Tips for Dry Skin

If you experience flaky, tight skin, learn to deeply moisturize and rehydrate. For more help, follow these simple tips.

  Avoid products that contain alcohol and fragrance

  Use gentle, non-drying products and follow with a facial moisturizer

  Use a micellar cleanser water as a gentle solution to remove dirt, oil, and makeup 

  To support delicate skin, use milk or lotion-based cleansers 

  Apply an exfoliant once a week to lift away dead surface skin cells and reduce flaking

Tips for Oily Skin

If you experience ongoing shine and frequent breakouts, remember, facial cleansing is the key to fighting clogged pores, blackheads, and other symptoms of oil-prone skin. Follow these simple tips.

  Use cleansers with salicylic acid help to clear pores and reduce shine

  Follow your cleansing routine with an oil-free, non-comedogenic moisturizer—SPF during the day, and oil regulation at night 

  To minimize blackheads, once a week, use an exfoliant + an oil regulating mask 

Tips for Combination Skin

If you experience oily skin and mild breakouts throughout your T-zone, but the rest of your face feels dry, your complexion is seeking balance. Follow these tips.

  Use a cleanser that provides hydration to dry cheeks, but also regulates oil in the T-zone

  After cleansing, apply an alcohol-free toner to your forehead and nose 

  Hydrate with a full facial application of an oil-free, non-comedogenic moisturizer 

Tips for Sensitive Skin

If you experience reactive skin, easily affected by outside influences, redness, and irritation—give your complexion the attention it deserves with the following tips.

  Use a mild, gentle cleanser, free of alcohol and fragrance

  During facial cleansing, lukewarm water is your friend; hot water, not so much

  Once you find a product that agrees with your complexion, follow with an SPF moisturizer
