NIHON Soothing Facial Cleanser: Best gentle cleanser for oily and acne-prone skin

The first step in skincare has always been to cleanse your face. It is very crucial for everyone, especially when you have oily skin. Your face needs to be cleaned before proceeding to the next step. By cleansing, you remove impurities, dirt, and oil so that the rest of the skincare steps can absorb better into your skin. Although it seems easy and straightforward, it does help for you to have beautiful, glowing skin by doing it the right way. And of course, your skin barrier can be messed up pretty badly if you do it in the wrong way.

So what are the cleansing tips for you to get the best result?

1. Only cleanse twice a day

When you have oily skin, the feeling to cleanse your face every minute is high. It is so frustrating to bear with the oiliness and sebum. However, no matter how uncomfortable it feels, generally, you only need to wash your face twice a day - in the morning and before going to sleep. Over-cleansing will strip the skin by removing the natural sebum that the skin needs. Yes, your skin still needs sebum to maintain its bounciness and plumpiness.

2. Follow the 60-seconds rule

If you have been on Social Media or following the skincare gurus, you probably saw the trend of the 60-second cleansing rule. So what's about it? It is super easy! You only need to cleanse your skin for 60 seconds. Well, it is not just pointless hype. When you rub your face for 60 seconds, you will be getting the lather into your pores, where it can reduce the amount of oil on your skin. During cleansing, it dilutes the sebum and oils on your face so you can rinse it away.

3. Use a gentle cleanser

Dealing with oily skin is a full-time job. Sometimes you want the sebum to just dissappear. However, it is important to preserve enough sebum for your skin to stay healthy and maintain its bounciness. That's the point of a mild cleanser! It removes the dirt and oil without eliminating the skin moisture, unlike a harsh soap. Thus, preventing your skin from drying out and becoming vulnerable to irritants.

Now, how do you choose the cleanser that suits perfectly for oily and acne-prone skin?

The first important thing in cleansing is to choose the right cleanser that is suitable for your skin type. Acne cleansers are specially designed for acne-prone skin to help prevent breakouts without damaging the skin. So how to choose the best cleanser for oily and acne-prone skin? Here are a few things to look for:

  • Choose a cleanser that doesn't contain Sodium Lauryl Sulphate.
  • Look for an ingredient that helps with acne.
  • Make sure the pH level is around 4.5 - 7 pH value.
