When treating acne, the first step is to cleanse the skin. Cleansing removes oil, dirt, and pollution so that the treatment you apply can effectively penetrate. However, cleansing should be performed correctly, with only bare hands, using a featherlight touch for 10 seconds or less. This might seem fast, but any form of skin irritation can make acne worse, so it is vitally important to stay gentle and brief when washing your skin.
I made this generously sized ultra-gentle liquid cleanser so we would have a pH-balanced cleanser which doesn’t over-dry and is gentle enough for people with sensitive, acne-prone skin. It also lathers very well, which helps provide a gentle and quick cleansing experience, further helping to prevent irritation.
It is also unscented and dye-free. Fragrances and dyes can sometimes irritate the skin, and since irritation can lead to acne, it’s best to opt for unscented and dye-free products.
