Patients frequently ask which facial cleansers should be used. Firstly, I prescribe facial cleansers in patients who need to remove excess sebum and oil from their face. These are often patients with acne. Be very careful not to over cleanse and strip away the natural protective barrier from your skin. Cleansers that pull the face tight and make the face feel dry should be avoided! I have used many, and currently prescribe the Cetaphil DERMACONTROL Oil Control Foam Wash. I use it every day.
