Milky vs Oily vs Gel Cleansers
by Erika Geraerts·
Suitable for: Oily / Combination skin
These formulas work to target the oil that can make your face appear 'shiny'. They often promote benefits like eliminating acne-causing bacteria, while giving the skin a 'deeper clean'. If you have an oily skin type, gel cleansers can be the best option for targeting impurities and preventing acne or breakouts.
Deep-cleansing gel cleansers often contain salicylic acid, which helps regulate the production of sebum and clear clogged pores. Aloe vera is also a great natural ingredient in the form of a gel cleanser, with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory (cooling) properties in managing oily and acne-prone skin.
