Skin is a unique and important part of the body. It is imperative when cleansing that you are using the proper products. Wouldn’t it be great if I could help you cut down on all the buy, try and disposal of so many worthless products? Here is a breakdown of great options based upon your skin type.

Normal/Even

This means you have limited skin issues (e.eg., blemishes and imperfections).  A face wash such as Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash ($24, Sephora.com) exfoliates and adds moisture to the skin.

Oily

You need some additional assistance with removing the “greasy” feeling on your skin. Dermatologist-created Glytone Exfoliating Gel Wash for Oily Skin ($30, Dermstore.com) is a great option. It exfoliates and removes oil from the skin. During dry winter months remember to use in conjunction with a light moisturizer. You never want your skin to get too dry.

Murad Time Release Acne Cleanser ($30, Sephora.com) works over a course of time with continuous usage. It enhances the skin by ridding it of acne, age lines and enlarged pores.

Try skin-friendly Philosophy Purity Made Simple ($23, Sephora.com). This product has minimal chemicals and uses natural substances such as sage, chamomile and carrot to help keep skin hydrated.

Sensitive

With sensitive skin, chemicals are a no-no. This is the best type of product for sensitive skin. Try Fresh Soy Cleanser ($38 at Sephora.com). It contains soy proteins, to help give your skin an extra boost without the harsh ingredients.
