15 Face Washes for Acne

August 10, 2020


To use your face wash correctly, board certified dermatologist Dr. Peterson Pierre explains that you’ll only want to cleanse your face twice a day (in the morning and evening), as over-washing can dry out the skin.

With this in mind, he suggests applying a quarter-sized amount of cleanser onto damp skin, rubbing your face wash in circular motions until you proceed to wash it off.

And while it’s easy to assume that your cleanser will start working immediately, Pierre says that cleansers do require a good amount of time to work, as it usually takes up to 2 weeks to a month in order to see visible results.

“In acne-prone skin, you should allow at least a month of consistent use before making any changes,” he explains. “Skin care products don’t typically work overnight, but you should notice a change within a month.”
