10 Cleansers For Sensitive Acne-Prone Skin

The struggle for acne is real. Those pesky breakouts seem to enter most people’s lives after adolescence. And after that, the problem may feel eternal. However, adopting a good skincare routine is one crucial step towards clear skin. Out of which, face washes come as the top priority. We’re always on the lookout for products that genuinely work. A few good cleansers, that not only treat pimples, but prevent them are given below.

#1. The Body Shop Tea Tree Facial Wash

It really stands up to its claims of being skin clearing, thanks to its key ingredient salicylic acid. I can really feel the cleanser working in my skin and so I like to leave it on for a few minutes. This one is particularly great if you’ve normal to oily skin.

#2. Neutrogena Grapefruit Facial Cleanser

Another great option to consider for oily-skinned gals. Though I feel it doesn’t reduce active breakouts as much of the other ones, it’ll certainly prevent future ones. You’ll surely be a fan if you like strong scents and textures.

#3. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

Like all of Cetaphil’s variants, this is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. So, even the most sensitive skin will be unaffected. Try this out if you’re looking for a gentle, soap-free product that won’t strip away too much oil and moisturise as well. 

#4. Simple Refreshing Facial Wash

Simple is quite a natural brand, sharing the same basic philosophies as that of Cetaphil. As a result, the refreshing facial wash is another lightweight alternative to the latter. If your skin’s more on the dry side, then feel free to purchase the moisturising one instead.

#5. First Aid Beauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser

Recently gone to fame, this gem is loaded with beneficial antioxidants to help your skin transform into its better version. It’ll mildly exfoliate the skin as well as removing makeup, dirt and grime.

#6. Biore Charcoal Acne Clearing Cleanser 

Both the neutrogeuna face wash and this contain salicylic acid! The difference is the texture of the two. This one has charcoal instead of grapefruit scents.

#7. St. Ives Acne Control Apricot Scrub 

Celebrities, including Gigi Hadid, have shown their love for the famous St. Ives line. Its quite affordable but does seem to do some incredible magic on the skin. Go for this if you’re looking for a good exfoliator.

#8. La Roche-Posay Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser

A bit on the pricey side, but you do get what you pay for! It targets excess oil and thus breakouts, again with the help of trusted salicylic acid. Additionally, this is paraben-free.

#9. Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser 

What if you’ve been given the sad combination of dry and acne-prone skin? Its rare but possible. The willowbank in this will detox your pores and quench their thirst.

#10. Cerave Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser

Last but not the least, we have this creamy wash containing 4% benzoyl peroxide. Its certainly worth a shot because of the positive experience most have from it.
