The best daily cleansing routine depends on your skin type. If you have dry skin, dermatologists suggest washing twice a day with a mild cleanser or creamy wash. For extremely dry skin, use a cleanser only once a day, at night, and rinse with water in the morning. For oily, acne-prone skin, dermatologists recommend using an oil-free foaming cleanser with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide to help prevent acne breakouts. Ingredients in cleansers marketed for men vary widely from one manufacturer to another. If you're not sure what to use, talk to your dermatologist for advice on the best products for your skin.
