Frequently asked questions about our cleanser

What is a cleanser?
A cleanser is a product used to clean oils, bacteria, makeup, dead skin cells and environmental pollutants off of your skin. You can find cream, gel and foaming cleansers that all work to help wash away substances that could clog your pores and lead to acne.
How do you use facial cleanser?
To use a cleanser, apply the product to your face using your fingertips and gently wash your face in a circular motion. As you wash, the cleanser should become sudsy and you may feel it begin to break up the oils on top of your skin. The cleanser will do the work, so there is no need to intensely scrub your skin. After you have washed your face, rinse with lukewarm water and apply a moisturizer.
What is the best facial cleanser?
As with all skin care products, there is not a single best facial cleanser for everyone. Instead, it is important to find a cleanser that is right for your specific skin type. For example, if you have very oily skin, you may want to try a gel cleanser to help hydrate and clean your skin without adding heavy products that might clog pores. If you have dry skin, a cream cleanser can help you to wash your face without stripping it of essential oils. If you are unsure what will work best, try a certain cleanser for a full month without changing any other products or aspects of your skin care routine to check for an improvement or worsening of your skin's condition.
What is the best acne cleanser for oily skin?
For oily, acne-prone skin, the best cleanser options are either a cleanser with acne-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide, or a soothing and hydrating cleanser. If you are using an acne treatment, especially one containing a retinol, you should avoid salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide because these may increase skin irritation and worsen acne. You can also fight the overproduction of acne-causing oil with spironolactone, an oral medication that fights the hormonal cause of excess oil production.
What is the best face cleanser for sensitive skin?
If you have sensitive skin, it is important to find a cleanser with simple ingredients that will not irritate your skin. If you choose a cleanser that is too harsh, you may dry your skin out and create small abrasions that cause acne. A fragrance-free cleanser with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, soy and glycerin is your best bet.
