One of the best things you can do every day to keep your skin clean and acne-free, it’s wash your face. The right face wash for you, however, will depend on your skin type. Ideally, the best face wash for combination skin will thoroughly remove oils, sebum, and impurities while gently exfoliating dead skin, evening out your skin’s texture and adding hydration to dry patches.
When you skin is both oily and dry like it is when you have combination skin, choosing the right products to keep your skin balanced and breakout free can be a bit of a challenge. If, let’s say, you make preventing or treating acne your number one priority and choose a cleanser with harsh ingredients like benzoyl peroxide, alcohol, or retinol, you may upset the drier areas of your skin and cause more pimples in the process. If you do the opposite and use too gentle of a cleanser, you might notice your skin becoming increasingly dull or uneven or you might feel like you're not removing enough oil (or makeup or sweat) to which your skin will, again, react with unwanted blackheads, breakouts.
Thankfully, there are plenty of gentle, balancing cleansers that are perfect for combination skin. With purifying ingredients like clay or charcoal to attract oil and draw out impurities, gentle and natural exfoliating ingredients and acne treatments like glycolic acid, salicylic acid and AHA's and moisturizers like glycerin, the face washes listed below will keep your combination skin clear, smooth and radiant.
