Proper cleansing is an integral part of modern skincare, removing excess oil, dirt, and various makeup from the face, keeping the skin clean and fresh. For people with sensitive skin, it’s even more important to use the appropriate products, as some of the harsher cleansers (or if you use bar soap) can irritate your skin the first thing in the morning before you get anything else started.

Dermatologists are looking for mild cleansers that do not contain fragrances. Hypoallergenic products, or products designed for people with sensitive skin are at the top of the list. They generally contain fewer ingredients that the skin could potentially react to.
