What is the best cleanser for acne?
By: Dr Magnus Lynch

Choosing the right cleaner can be an important step if you have acne-prone skin. We like La Roche Posay Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser. Alternatives include CeraVe Hydrating cleanser.

Many over the counter cleansers marketed for acne advertise the presence of ‘active’ ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. In reality these products are in contact with your skin for a very short time so will not have a significant impact on your acne but can potentially irritate and inflame your skin.
