This cleanser contains the maximum amount of salicylic acid permitted in at-home products—2%—to treat current acne and prevent future breakouts. However, despite its strength, the foaming formula is quite gentle. CLENZIderm M.D. Daily Care Foaming Cleanser also contains menthol, which adds a soothing cooling sensation to your daily cleanse—a bonus for inflamed, acne-prone skin.

- Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid, a unique exfoliant that can treat skin both at the surface level and deep into the pore, to reduce breakouts.
- Unlike harsher blemish-fighting ingredients, which tend to dry or irritate skin that’s already sensitized, salicylic acid boasts hydrating and soothing properties.
After wetting your face, apply a thin layer of cleanser and massage into your skin for 30 seconds, avoiding the eye area. Once you’ve rinsed your face and patted it clean, wait 10 to 15 minutes, to allow the active ingredients to fully penetrate your skin, before applying other products.
If you’re prone to sensitivity and dryness when using salicylic acid, start with one application daily until your skin adjusts to the formula.
Salicylic acid makes your skin more sensitive to sunlight, so be sure to complete your morning skin-care routine with sunscreen application.
