Skin Care and Diseases
It says here to use a "use a waterless cleaner to cleanse your face several times a day" for oiliness. Can you give me an idea of what those products would be? I don`t know what to buy. Thank you.
Waterless cleaners are mixtures of water and surfactants, preservatives, and occasionally long-chain alcohols. They vary with manufacturers. Your drugist can give you a list. Commonly used ones are Cetaphil waterless cleaner, Purpose waterless cleaner, Aveeno waterless cleaner. Your pharmacist can direct you to the right one and give you advice.
