best facewashes for acne prone skin

Acne prone skin is mostly very sensitive and that’s why it requires a very careful cleansing, toning and moisturising process with the right products and ingredients. While some ingredients successfully regulate the oil production and keep the skin infection free which helps a lot with the common problem of acne vulgaris, other ingredients can excessively dry out skin causing more breakouts. So if you want to have clean and healthy skin, choose wisely what’s inside your cleansing products. There are many new formulas in the market that claim to have a combination of natural ingredients (including a few substances that you may have never heard of!) but all you need to know is which one is perfect for your skin type. So let’s have a look.

Tea Tree And Cinnamon Facewash

Lotus Herbals Tea Tree and Cinnamon Anti Acne Oil Control Face Wash

Tea tree oil is very beneficial oil for the skin. This wonder oil is used in traditional medicine to treat skin infections and is good for oily skin too. The anti-microbial properties of cinnamon also make it perfect to keep acne away. Buy a facewash with these two ingredients and you can say bye bye to those pesky pimples after a few weeks of use.
