Face Cleansers and Soaps

Facial skin care begins by using the best face cleansing creams and washes available. These dermatologist-recommended facial skin care products go beyond the usual face creams and soaps to include skin cleansers, gel wash, exfoliating scrubs, and medicated soaps to treat acne, rosacea, and other common skin problems.

Cleansers and soaps are often irritating and most people don't realize that in their zeal to cleanse, they often do more harm than good to their facial skin! The best skin care products do the cleaning job without irritation. The secret is to match the right facial skin cleanser with your skin type and your facial skin treatment program. This means, for example, that if you have rosacea, you won't tolerate a strong acne skin cleanser designed for teens with oily skin. You have to pick the right facial skin cleanser for your skin, and I have facial cleansers to fit every skin care need. Here are the products I depend on for my patients as I build them a complete facial skin care routine for creating healthy skin:

Toleriane Cleanser will clean skin without irritating the most sensitive skin or over drying extremely dry skin.

Calming Zinc ® is the best rosacea skin cleanser, and treats seborrhea too. I also depend on it for acne-prone complexions due to the pityrosporum folliculitis type of facial acne.

Dr. Bailey Skin Care's Foaming Acne Treatment Cleansers (Foaming Cleanser, and Foaming Cleanser, Extra Strength) are perfect for oily and acne-prone skin, or any tolerant complexion that is prone to clogged pores. They are medicated with salicylic acid and fortified to unclog pores with glycolic acid, which comes in two strengths. 

Dr. Bailey Foaming Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment Cleanser is the best cleanser for acne skin care if you are allergic to salicylic acid. It is medicated with a full 10% level of benzoyl peroxide to be tough on acne-causing germs and blackheads. 

Naturally Best Bar Soap is naturally made from organic ingredients and rich in skin-hydrating glycerin. It is hypoallergenic and ideal for sensitive complexions.

Vanicream Cleansing Bar is a modern, hypoallergenic soapless cleanser in a bar, and is an ideal bar soap for sensitive skin.

Do you want to exfoliate and brighten your skin while cleansing?

Choose a cleanser with exfoliating properties, and/or add a Facial Buf Puf or the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System (Clarisonic SMART Profile or Clarisonic MIA 2).

Exfoliating facial cleansers include:

Dr. Bailey's Foaming Acne Treatment Cleansers, described above

Replenix Exfoliating Scrub which removes dead skin cells with rolled bamboo granules that won't scratch the skin or harm the ecosystem.

Glytone Mild Gel Wash Cleanser which has just the right amount of Glycolic Acid to do the job.

Do you need a toner after washing your skin?

Really clean skin is the best base for applying all your other skin care treatment products. Not only will your skin look great, but your products will penetrate better. Get really clean skin by using my Naturally Hydrating Pore Refining Toner after your skin cleanser to remove the last vestiges of oil and dirt before you apply your next skin care step. If you have acne, my Acne Treatment Pads are an excellent skin toner. They also deliver medicated salicylic acid, and are fortified with glycolic acid to deeply unclog pores while they remove oil and dirt left behind after washing.
