For dry skin-
Choose a cleaner with a non-foaming with a milky texture. It will not leave your skin dry after cleansing. Also, add hydrating ingredients to your skincare routine including shea butter, hyaluronic acids and aloe vera gel. Also, wash your face twice a day, once in the morning and once at night.
For combination skin-
If you have oily T-zone and dry to normal skin, you have a combination skin type. You can use a mild gel cleanser twice a day. Add repairing ingredients to your skincare routine for maximum results such as AHA/BHA, peptides and ceramides.
For oily skin-
If you have clogged and enlarged pores with a greasy texture, you should use a foaming face wash. Use ingredients like salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide and AHA. According to a dermatologist, cleanse your face in the morning and double-cleanse at night.
"The purpose of a cleanser is to remove dirt and particles, so focus on that and leave your serums and oils to do the work of treating your skin," Dr. Geetika adds.
