Now that you know what your skin type is (click here if you don't), here's our handy guide on the best face washes out there by skin type.
DRY SKIN GUIDE
Dry skin needs a cream or oil based face wash which cleanses without stripping your skin of its natural lipid layer.
You skin should feel clean but nourished at the same time. Dry skin needs a cleanser rich in essential oils and hydrating ingredients.

OILY SKIN GUIDE
Oily skin falls prey to skin issues such as pimples and acne. Consider using oil free and gel based face wash which will keep your skin fresh and also control shine. The idea is to keep hydration and oil levels in check.

NORMAL SKIN GUIDE
We consider normal skinned beauties the luckiest of all, since they are rarely plagued by major skin problems. However, even normal skin deserves to be pampered and kept beautifully clean. Most cleansers will work for normal skin. If your fall into this category, you can use cream based or gel based or foam based face wash as per your choice.
