Best Types of Cleansers for Oily, Dry, and Combination Skin


One of the most important steps in your skin care beauty routine is cleansing your face every day. It is especially important to cleanse before you go to bed, to make sure you remove all the dirt, makeup, and oil that has piled up on your face throughout the day. Did you know it is just as important to pick the right type of cleanser for your skin type? Using the wrong type can actually do more harm than good. What should you use on your skin? Here are the best types of cleansers for oily, dry and combination skin:


Dry Skin
With dry skin comes a rough or dull complexion, red patchy skin and more visible lines and wrinkles.3 What is the perfect type of cleanser for those with dry skin? It is recommended that you use a cream cleanser. These tend to be gentle and will help to moisturize your dry skin. They also will not create any suds on the surface on your face.1 Using a cream cleanser is very simple. Squeeze out a squirt of it on your already wet face, rub it around, and then rinse with water.


Combination Skin

Sometimes combination skin can be hard to deal with. Partially oily, partially dry and totally high maintenance. What is the best cleanser to make sure your combo skin looks healthy and glowing? Consider using a cleansing gel! This type of cleanser will remove oil while still adding moisture.2 Using this type of cleanser is the same as the others. Dispense two pumps onto your hands and apply to your wet face. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Try our COMPLETE CLARITY Facial Cleansing Wash.


Oily Skin

You may have oily skin if your pores are big, your complexion is extra shiny or dull, or if you are prone to breakouts such as blackheads or pimples.3 The best type of facial cleanser for oily skin is a foam cleanser. This type of cleanser will pump out a foam and is great for cutting through the oil on top of your face. To use, pump as much of the cleanser as you feel comfortable using, and rub it all over your face. Rinse it off with luke-warm water.1 This cleanser may help keep the oil on your skin at bay and is great for acne as well
