TOP 5 Cleansers for Oily Skin

Controlling oily congested and acne prone skin can be high-maintenance at the best of times but starting with the right cleanser will be one of the most important steps in your regime. Before you jump down to our Top 5 Cleansers for Oily Skin there’s one very essential ingredient we want you to remember – it’s called Salicylic Acid.

Salicylic acid is one of the most commonly seen ingredients on the labels of acne products and acne treatments but do you know what salicylic acid actually is, and how it works? Because understanding ingredients is a vital step in getting (and keeping!) a clear complexion.

What you need to remember is that Salicylic Acid is the key to treating oily acenic skin types and is one of acnes biggest enemies! Overproduction of oil daily can build up along the hair follicles and pores leading to congestion and if untreated acne. Salicylic acid works by dissolving oil and dead skin cells that causes congestion by encouraging the exfoliation of dead skin cells and the clearing of pores of excess oil. Result = clear complexion and prevention of future breakouts.

Check out our Top 5 Cleansers for Oily Skin suitable for the very oily acne prone skin type right down to mildly congested skin type! 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
