1Great complexion starts right in the bathroom—with a reliable facial cleanser. It’s pretty clear (no pun intended) that a proper cleansing routine is vital to nab a flawless complexion. But with abundant tubes and bottles of pore-purifying cleansers available everywhere, it may take several tries before you find your perfect match. The good news: Your guessing days are over because we prepared a nifty guide on what ingredients and qualities you should look for in a facial cleanser based on your skin type. Keep on reading to see our picks.

Sensitive Skin
Your fragile complexion should be washed with a soap-free formula devoid of fragrance and color. Try Physiogel Cleanser (at department stores), a hypoallergenic, non-comodegonic (read: doesn’t clog pores) to rid of makeup, dirt, and oil without triggering your skin’s allergies.

Combination Skin

When you’ve got combination skin, say you have a shiny T-zone and flaking cheeks, you use two separate cleansers to target each area. Grab a fuss-free facial that purges all the nasties and takes care of your skin’s natural moisture balance. Clinique’s Liquid Facial Soap’s (P1,300 at Rustan’s branches) dermatologist-approved formula adequately takes action on combination skin’s common issues.
Oily Skin
Abolish shine with a refreshing gel cleanser like Mario Badescu’s Botanical Facial Gel (P745 at Rustan’s branches). This bottle takes off makeup, dirt, excess oil in one go. Plus, you’ll bid whiteheads and blackheads goodbye, thanks to its alpha-hdroxy formula that speeds up your skin’s renewal process.
Dry Skin
Retain skin’s moisture and suppleness with a non-foaming cleanser designed to gently melt off accumulated gunk and plug in light hydration like Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple (P1,395 at SM Megamall and Glorietta).
Blemish-prone skin
Banish zits, bacteria, and impurities without sucking out your skin’s natural moisture with an organic cleanser like Juice Beauty’s Blemish-Clearing Solution Cleanser (P1,375 at Beauty Bar branches) . It’s loaded with detoxifying organic lemon and cherry extracts, hydrating aloe, and mildly cleansing coconut base.
