Need help selecting a cleanser?

Look for silicone-based surfactants like dimethicone that tend to be non-irritating, non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores) and hypoallergenic. It’s important to maintain a routine of twice-daily cleansing to eliminate accumulations of grime and excess oil. Dirt and debris are usually embedded in the outer layer of oil, and removing these impurities, although it’s a necessity, can disrupt the natural skin barrier and cause dryness and irritation to occur.

To minimize the drying effects, select a gentle cleanser to lift dirt and oil for easy removal. Cleansers are generally pH (a measure of acidity or alkalinity) neutral and have been formulated to avoid disturbing the natural pH levels of your skin. If you have sensitive skin, try the lighter and gentler action of foam cleansers - they will effectively clean your face without completely stripping away the protective oils.
