Cleansing is the first step in most skin care routines. It’s important to keep your skin clean to help remove dirt, sweat, makeup and other bacteria that can accumulate on your face during the day. While choosing a great cleanser may not make you instantly look 10 years younger, choosing one that isn’t right for you could cause problems. You should choose your cleanser based on your skin type and any other issues you’re experiencing, such as acne.
