Today’s question: “What’s a good face wash for me?”

Hey...I have a query...I have pimples and which face wash is good for me?

acne face wash

Answer from the POPxo Team

Dear X,

Pimples and acne-prone skin are a direct result of oily skin. It’s important to use a face wash that will control oil, wash away grime and unclog pores to prevent future breakouts. The following cleansers are our top recommendations when it comes to dealing with your problem:

Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser (INR 499)

Cetaphil Cleansing Lotion (INR 345)

Clean & Clear Foaming Face Wash (INR 98)

Himalaya Purifying Neem Face Wash (INR 150)

Wash your face twice a day to prevent pimples. There are a few at-home exfoliators to try for treating those marks - like mashing fenugreek leaves (methi) and applying the paste on the affected areas till it dries. You can also apply sandalwood (chandan) and rosewater mixed together in equal amounts on your face and wash off when it dries. We tell you a few other home remedies here - use them regularly for results.

Also remember that prevention is better than cure, so be sure to never pop those zits to avoid marks.

Good luck!
