2. A cleanser for acne skin should not have any abrasive minute particles that can hurt your skin.

3. Choose a cleanser that is suitable for your skin, there are cleansers for dry skin, oily skin and combination skin. Select a cleanser according to your skin type.

4. There are acne cleansers that help to treat and control acne. Ask your dermatologist which one is best for you. 

5. There are  medicated acne cleansers that have ingredients that help to clear acne like salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, sodium sulfectamide. 

After cleansing remember to apply a moisturizer. Apply a moisturizer that is noncomedogenic (does not block the pores of your skin).
