Whether you’re born with dry skin or not, the products you use on your face will play a part in controlling this issue. So start with looking at your cleanser, as it is the first product you’ll use to clean your face after a day out. 

Using the right one will play a part in how your skin maintains moisture after cleansing. For references, a lotion-based cleanser is ideal as it has moisturising properties although oil-based cleansers may be needed to remove waterproof makeup first.

Now that we’ve more-or-less pinned down what cleansers would best suit you, here are some recommended cleansers to go for!

Best cleanser for dry, acne prone skin

As if suffering from dry skin isn’t enough, some of us have to deal with acne prone skin as well!

Here’s a tip or two. Go creamy and avoid fragrances. That’s because a creamy texture would act almost like a moisturiser. Whereas unscented products would contain less chemicals and thus, will rarely spur irritation or a breakout to the skin.

This gentle and clement cleanser does its duties with skin conditioning botanical oils. Its blend of organic calendula and jojoba is enriched with natural skin conditioning botanical oils to soothe and soften dry as well as sensitive skin.
