Facial cleansers are meant to rid our pores of gunk, but unknown to many, our trusty foaming wash may actually hinder us from achieving healthy skin.
Some foam cleansers use sodium laurel sulfate, a surfactant that can be harsh on the skin. This ingredient strips away the skin's natural protective barrier, which makes it prone to irritation and inflammation. At times, it may even worsen your acne's condition. Avoid this by being extra vigilant. Read product labels before applying anything on your face. See our recommendations below:
