This is the first in a four-topic series that covers specific skin issues. Today, it’s all about clearing your skin with the help of the right facial cleanser.
It’s hard to believe that Joy Bryant’s skin is actually this perfect. So we won’t. I’m happy just thinking, that she (like us normal folks) had to enlist the help of skin care products to get skin this angelic. However Joy’s skin came to be, the moral of the story is – don’t hate the player, hate the game ladies.
If your goal is to just maintain your complexion or even keep itsy, bitsy zits away, there are many facial cleanser options that do the trick:
Kiehl’s Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser ($20.50, kiehls.com) is a product from my not-so-distant past. Aside from the activating ingredient of salicylic acid which clears your skin of acne blemishes, this product also contains extracts of Cinnamon Bark and Ginger Root to also aid in the treatment of blemishes. Before I found my super dermatologist, Dr. Elena Jones, I searched far and wide for facial cleansing products that helped to treat my extremely oily skin and this was among my many finds.
For those of you with reactive skin (i.e. sensitive skin), you should look for products that soothe and calm your face. Look no further than Jurlique Soothing Foaming Cleanser ($40, jurlique.com). This line works gently to lift away surface impurities with ingredients such as groomwell and sichuan peppercorn. You’ll notice after you’ve washed your face with this product that it leaves your skin feeling comfortable.
