Washing your face seems like a slam dunk—just grab whatever cleanser is handy and rinse, right? Well, not exactly. As our Licensed Aesthetician Christy Ledford will tell you, the cleansing portion of your skincare routine could be the most important, especially at night. The wrong cleanser can be too strong, strip and irritate your skin’s barrier. Conversely, a whimpy wash won’t do an effective enough job at removing dirt and oil, causing you to breakout.
So, don’t use just any old cleanser. Instead, it's better to find one that works best for your particular skin type, with ingredients that are good for your skin rather than harsh and drying. Never fear. We’ve narrowed down the best of the best here and you can also search by selecting your skin type.
