🎀 If you battle acne choose an active cleanser with Salicylic and glycolic. If you are over 60 years or have very dry skin choose a nice milky cleanser. For the rest of you choose an active cleanser with glycolic. It will provide a little extra exfoliation and help keep the skin bright and blemish free.
👩🏻⚕️ Skin 101: Learn active ingredients. Some of my favorites: glycolic, retinol, salicylic & vitamin C & A.
Now read labels, look to see where the active ingredient falls within the other ingredients. The closer to the top means there is more of that active ingredient.

👩🏻⚕️ Skin 101: There are many AHA, alpha hydroxy acids, and only one BHA, beta hydroxy acid. Salicylic is the one and only BHA. Salicylic is used as a peel or used to control oil, bacteria and inflammation. It increases healing, smooths texture, draws out impurities and is necessary for healthy skin.
