Cleansing is basically the foundation of any skincare routine. It can ward off acne-causing dirt, debris, and excess oil, and it can also help manage and prevent breakouts. The only downside is a lot of formulas targeted for acne-prone skin tend to be drying. But fret not, there are a lot of milder formulas that clear the skin from impurities without compromising your skin barrier!
Ahead, we list seven affordable gentle cleansers you can reach for to keep your complexion clean, fresh and balanced. Scroll down, and add these to your cart!
