It’s amazing how many people I see that use the wrong cleanser for their skin type.
Are you using the right cleanser for your skin type?
There are so many out there, but I highly recommend a good Medical Grade brand!
Let’s make sure you’re using the right one!

Foam cleansers create a foamy lather (hence the name), and are ideal for removing oil, layers of makeup and even hard-to-wash-off sunscreen. They can be a little bit harsh since they’re made to slightly dry out the skin, though some are formulated with oils or emollients to provide a more moisturizing experience.
With any cleanser, you always want to follow with a moisturizer.
Foaming Cleansers are best for people with oily skin, and also for those with acne-prone or teenage skin.
But worst for those with already dry skin, or skin that’s very sensitive.
Cream Cleansers tend to be very gentle, very moisturizing, and
sometimes don’t even require water and are instead applied and then wiped away with a clean tissue. After using this type, you should use a toner or facial wipe to remove reside. When using a cream cleanser that requires water, apply a dollop to wetted skin, massage and rinse before moisturizing.
Cream cleansers are excellent choices for sensitive skin and those with rosacea. They’re also a good option for really dry skin and mature skin.
However, teenage skin and oily skin types will find better success with other cleansers.
Oil Cleansers work on an ‘oil attracts oil’ basis, absorbing impurities and nourishing the skin.
They can also be part of a multiple-step cleansing process to get the “best clean” you can. For example, makeup wearers like to cleanse with oil to remove product and dirt, followed by a foaming cleansing to soak up excess oil and remove anything left behind.
Oil cleansers are best for makeup wearers, especially those who tend to wear primer, foundation and the whole shebang. It’s also “excellent for dry skin, eczema prone skin and sensitive skin.
However, oil cleansers are not the best choice for extremely oily skin types.
Also, make sure the oil you're using is non-comedogenic so it won't clog your pores and cause breakouts
