1. Oily skin
In summer, people with oily skin can choose soap-based cleansers and cleansers with SLE/SLES ingredients.
And in the relatively cool spring and fall, you can choose a soap-based or amino acid-based cleanser, used alone or in combination, depending on the skin condition.
In winter, you can use an amino acid-based cleanser, which will not excessively remove oil and aggravate the dryness of the skin.
To sum up, there are 3 cleansers for people with oily skin, one for summer to remove oil, one for spring and autumn to balance oil and water, and one for winter to cleanse moderately. It is important to note that even in summer, people with oily skin should not wash their faces more than 2 times a day.
2. Dry skin
Compared to oily skin people, dry skin people are the most effortless, skin is also the most sensitive, it is best not to try the so-called deep cleaning type of cleanser.
