I have had acne for a good 14 years now and have used every acne product on the market. One conclusion that I have came to for myself is that using a cleanser is unnecessary. It makes my skin much drier and makes no difference in how much acne that I get. I have been clear while using BP with a cleanser and without. The only difference is when I use a cleanser, my face is so much drier all the time even with using a heavy moisturizer.
A cleanser does just as good a job at removing excess oil off my face as water and the oil comes back shortly anyway. I am just wondering is there anything else that I am really missing by not cleansing?
