3. MooGoo Natural Oil Cleansing Method

If you haven’t tried the oil cleansing method yet, you’re missing out! OCM is based on the principle that natural oils will dissolve the oils and impurities stuck in your pores, for a gentle cleanse that won’t strip your skin of much needed moisture. As acne.org explains:

Fact: Oil dissolves oil. One of the most basic principals of chemistry is that “like dissolves like.” The best way to dissolve a non-polar solvent like sebum/oil, is by using another non-polar solvent similar in composition: Other oils. By using the right oils, you can cleanse your pores of dirt and bacteria naturally, gently and effectively, while replacing the dirty oil with beneficial ones extracted from natural botanicals, vegetables and fruit that heal, protect and nourish your skin. When done properly and consistently, the OCM can clear the skin from issues like oily skin, dry skin, sensitive skin, blackheads, whiteheads and other problems caused by mild to moderate acne–while leaving your skin healthy, balanced and properly moisturized.

You can create your own blend with your favourite non-comedogenic oils, or else use a specially designed blend such as MooGoo’s Natural Oil Cleansing Method, which contains skin loving ingredients such as castor seed, rice bran, grape, jojoba and avocado oils.

6. La Roche-Posay Toleriane Softening Foaming Gel Cleanser

This softening foaming gel cleanser features glycerin, the quiet hero of skincare. Glycerin is a humectant, meaning it attracts water from the air to itself, and is known to mimic the skin’s natural moisturising factor. Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic & clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, explains: “When cleansing the skin, it is important to remove dirt and oil, but maintain the health of the outer skin layer. Ingredients like glycerin can help maintain hydration and prevent skin irritation during the cleansing process.” This makes La Roche-Posay’s Toleriane Softening Foaming Gel Cleanser a great cleanser for sensitive skin, gently moisturising and effectively cleansing the skin without irritation.
