How to Find the Right Acne Cleanser


When it comes to finding an acne cleanser, it could become a daunting task. There are so many choices when it comes to finding an acne cleaner that fits your skin condition. One of the most important factors that I recommend to many patients is, choose the cleaner that you are comfortable using. This pimple product shouldn’t be uncomfortable and it should get the job done without any form of side effect or irritation. There are several types of pimple cleaner available on the market today and it really becomes a personal preference.

Acne cleansers come in a variety of forms such as bar, liquid, foaming and non-foaming. Regardless of the type of products you choose, they will work just as efficiently as the next type. Foaming pimple cleansers have been known to be a little more drying when compared to non-foaming. If you have pimples problem and are using certain treatments to deal with the problem, you would already be dealing with a certain degree of dry skin. In such cases, it is important to use non-foaming cleansers as they will help keep the skin from drying out too much. When choosing a bar cleanser, you need to select specific ones that are soft and less sensitive towards your skin.

Depending on the severity of your acne condition, you may want to choose a medicated product. Such type of products would actually allow you to experience positive results with your overall treatment process. Hygiene is a huge bonus here, as it will really help you achieve results over the longer period of your treatment. Some of the medicated products available contain medication ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. When you use an effective product over the course of your treatment period, it will begin to reduce the blocked pores you have on the skin. This in fact will cause your pimples problem to dissipate as well.

The only downside with using a medicated acne cleanser is that it could leave your skin feeling dryer than usual. Certain products you can buy on store such as Accutane tend to have this affect on people’s skin, so be careful when using new products. Specific types of acne cleansers are meant to be used on the face while others are to be used on the body. Depending on what you need to use the cleanser for, you should select the right type of acne cleanser. Avoid looking at the price of the cleanser as well, because the truth is that, even though the cleanser may be expensive, it may not be as effective as the cheaper alternative.

Lastly, it would benefit you if you could speak to your dermatologist prior to using any form of medicated or non-medicated pimple products. Even though the skin may be resistant towards the cleanser, you need to make sure that it would not interfere with the treatment you are currently using. A dermatologist may even be able to help you find the right acne cleanser for your condition.
