Best In Acne: Cleansers


There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to acne treatment. When choosing the right cleanser for your acne-prone skin, it’s imperative to take other factors into consideration (such as your skin type, the type of acne you’re getting, and whether or not your skin is sensitive).

Discover which cleanser is right for your skin:

This daily acne cleanser contains superstar acne-fighting ingredient Salicylic Acid to help control whiteheads, blackheads, and those annoying pimple eruptions that can be painful (cystic) or that just linger until they turn into a whitehead. This formula is most suitable for those with combination or oily skin types.

This cleanser/exfoliant-in-one is an exfoliant designed to be used in place of a daily cleanser 1-2 times a week (for dry or combo/dry skin) or 2-3 times a week (for oily or combo/oily skin). Glycolic Acid is the holy grail of alpha hydroxy acids to help deep clean pores, prevent blackheads and congestion, and to promote a smoother complexion.
