Putting on your makeup starts way before you unzip your makeup bag. According to Dr. Doris Day, clinical assistant professor of dermatology at NYU Medical Center, using the right cleanser for your skin will help your makeup go on much more smoothly. Read below to see which type of cleanser is best for your skin type:
Sensitive Skin: "Use a non-comedeogenic cleanser," says Day. "There are plenty of cleansers designed for sensitive skin (we like Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser), that won't cause additional dryness or redness. Also steer clear from bar soaps, since many contain agents prone to drying out skin."
Acne-Prone: "Choose a cleanser that contains salicylic acid. This will promote cell turn over and work to deep clean your pores." Try Clearasil Ultra Daily Face Wash for a gentle, yet effective cleanser.
Combination Skin: Opt for a cleansing system to cover all your bases, like Bare Minerals Skin Renewing Trio, which deep cleans skin, moisturizes, and keeps under eye skin firm.
