Is My Cleanser Working?
Proper washing of your face can also contribute to healthier skin. It is unlikely that a generic face wash will improve your complexion. A cleanser will be effective only if picked to satisfy your skin needs.
For oily skin, pay attention to products containing such ingredients as salicylic or glycolic acids and benzoyl peroxide. If you have sensitive skin, gentle face washes with glycerin, a hydrating agent, or lactic acid—a mild exfoliant that does not affect the natural pH level of your skin and prevents it from becoming red or irritated — are to look for.
