SKINCARE || BEST CLEANSERS FOR ACNE PRONE SKIN, SENSITIVE SKIN AN OILY SKIN FOUND IN NIGERIA


Contrary to popular belief, the type of cleanser, soap or face wash you use on your oily, sensitive and/or acne prone skin is very important, and there are so many amazing and safe brands of cleanser/washes readily found in Nigeria. Oily skin is caused by over secretion of sebum(oil) and because of the presence of large pores on the skin of most people with oily skin, this oil peeks through really well and could sometimes get really embarrassing, a great way to reduce oil on the skin is by USING THE RIGHT MOISTURIZER for your type of skin. Acne and oily skin was something I dealt with for a really long while, but thank God  I finally found what cured me. I will share with you from personal experience how you can possibly manage your oily and acne prone skin. While there are so many myths surrounding acne and also so many little things we do that aggravate our acne choosing the wrong cleanser can set you 10 steps backward on your journey to healthier skin

  1. The first key to choosing the right cleanser is one word "GENTLE", stay away from cleansers aimed at acne prone skin because most of these cleansers will contain  harsh ingredients which will further over dry your skin, thereby triggering your sebaceous gland to produce more sebum. Go for basic cleansers that have no active ingredient.
  2. Another thing to look out for is parfum or fragrance, this is especially for my sensitive and acne prone sisters, parfum can greatly aggravate your acne(but if your skin isn't so sensitive then you should be okay).
  3. If you follow my blog regularly, you would remember what I said about acne and soap, products containing soap base can be overly drying to the skin thereby triggering your sebaceous gland to compensate for the dryness which will cause your skin to be overly oily.
  4. Go for cleansers that are oil free
CETAPHIL CLEANSER
 
Cetaphil soap and cleanser is a really great example, it cleanses the skin without over drying it and it contains no parfum or harsh chemicals, this goes for about 6500 naira now and it is a really huge bottle which should last you a long time.
 
 
ISIS PHARMA TEEN DERM GEL
 
I cannot wait to get my hands on this again when I started my journey to clear skin this was one of the cleansers I used, it had little micro beads in them which gently exfoliates the skin, thinking of how calming this made my skin makes me want to go buy this again. I got mine at a dermatology clinic in Abuja called PRIMA DERMA (you can reach them on facebook for more info and no this is not a sponsored post) for 3000 naira, it lasts a good while and for a healthy skin I did not mind the cost.

ACNE.ORG CLEANSER
 
 
I spoke about this acne.org cleanser in my how I finally found what cured my acne post, this is hands down the best cleanser I have ever used, it will clean your face really well but is very gentle on the skin. This cost about 12 dollars and you can find out how to get it here  in Nigeria along with the whole acne.org regimen at a good shipping price.
 

OLAY FACE WASH
 
 
I did a thorough review on this face was recently and I have raved about this before so I am not about to do that again of course but this is my go to, it is really affordable and last a good while. This cost between 1800 naira-2000 naira.
 
 
Sebamed is also another great option, it has no soap base and it was made with the right pH for the skin.
