Flawless and radiant skinFlawless and radiant skin is every girl’s fantasy! It’s next to a nightmare when you see angry red pimple popping out on the side of your face. The situation is worse for people with acne-prone skin, i.e., individuals with oily or combination skin types. As dermatologists suggest, cleaning your pores is one of the foremost treatments to combat that rigid acne.

What should you look for in your cleanser?

For acne treatment, a good cleanser should have a few or all of the following properties:


More than often, blockage of pores leads to the formation of whiteheads, blackheads and pimples. Inside the tiny pores on your skin are hair follicles that house the hair root- where pimples also originate from. A non-comedogenic cleanser will prevent blockage.


Pimples are also caused due to excessive breakouts of skin. So, go for products that prevent breakouts and do not come with oils, fragrances or any harsh ingredients.


Skin-irritation will be adverse to your skin’s health, especially if you’re acne prone. Redness, extra-dryness or just a rough surface promotes acne production. Go for cleansers that are mild on skin and do not harm the tissue.


Unwanted inflammation of pores, hives or itching or any such allergic symptoms must be addressed immediately if you’re prone to acne. If you see the word “hypoallergenic” on a cleanser label, it means that the maker claims its product causes fewer allergic reactions than other ones.

Next time, before picking up a cleanser for your acne-prone skin, keep this checklist handy!
