Skin Care Product Recommendations: Part 1

Skin Care Product Recommendations: Part 1
This month’s newsletter features skin care product recommendations. As dermatologists, we are in a position to help you sort through the massive number of skin care products available and the equally massive marketing hype that comes with them. The products that we recommend are based on either science or patient feedback (or preferably both). We have no relationship, financial or otherwise, with any of the companies or products that we recommend in this newsletter. And to further remain objective, we have excluded products that are sold in our office. Now that the disclaimer is out of the way, let’s get on with the products. This month we will feature cleansers:

Cellex-C Betaplex Gentle Foaming Cleanser:
This is a great all-purpose cleanser that can be used on all but the most sensitive skin type. I like the ingredients (alpha and beta hydroxy acids) and your skin will feel cleansed but not “over-cleansed” or dry. Find it a specialty beauty supply stores (GBS or Sephora) or on the internet.

Cetaphil Cleanser
A classic. Cheap and simple and you can find it everywhere (Walgreens, CVS, etc.). It is great for taking off make-up or just for washing your face without drying it out. Acne patients, who are already irritated from their strong creams (like Retin- A), will like this gentle cleanser.

Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Cleansing Cloths:
Great for acne patients who are not experiencing irritation from their medications, but who still have a lot of “blackheads”. The salicylic acid softens the blackhead while the textured cloth “unroofs” it. Don’t scrub hard. The texture of the cloth should do the work, not your muscles.

Crealine H2O:
Make-up remover and cleansing solution. A great way to clean the skin or remove make-up without water. The skin feels soft, not “tight” and it doesn’t leave your face greasy or shiny. I have seen this brand at Bloomingdale’s (although not this particular product) or find it at
