The Best Facial Cleansers For Dry Skin

These won't leave your skin dry and tight.

Pinays with combination or oily skin are common here in the Philippines because of our hot and humid weather. However, there are still those who suffer from dry skin—which, tbh, is just as annoying as having oily skin. 

One of the best ways to treat dryness is finding the perfect facial cleanser to include in your skincare routine. The right facial wash will nourish your skin and prep it for your other skincare products, ensuring your pores will be able to absorb them all. This is why when searching for the best facial cleanser for dry skin, you should look for one with a rich and emollient formula—which is usually oil-based or cream-based—that's gentle enough and won't disrupt or destroy your skin's moisture barrier. 

To score a cottony-soft clear complexion, check out our roundup of facial cleansers for dry skin!
