There are many cleansers available in chemists and beauty departments that are suitable for acne sufferers and each brand contains varying strengths of acne-fighting ingredients. Finding one that suits your skin may be a trial and error process, so be patient when you start using these types of skin care products. However, for those with severe acne, a dermatologist may recommend a prescription strength cleanser that contains a high concentration of salicylic acid and other antibacterial ingredients.
 
Cleansers designed to fight acne contain several ingredients that can reduce the level of bacteria on the skin’s surface. These can also keep the pores free of oil and toxins. The higher the concentration of these ingredients, the greater the chance that your skin will dry out. The most common types of over-the-counter cleansers for acne prone skin include:
  • Foaming cleansers
  • Cream-based cleansers
  • Liquid cleansers
  • Bar cleansers
