For normal to dry skin, bacteria and UV rays can strip the skin’s moisture barrier causing it to become drier. Use a cleansing milk or balm that provides a deep clean without over-cleansing such as Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser or Mario Badescu Cleansing Milk.

With normal to oily skin, bacteria and UV rays can increase oil production and damage skin’s moisture barrier. Opt for a gentle gel based cleanser like Neutrogena Hydro Boost Cleansing Gel or L’oreal Paris Foaming Gel Cleanser.
