Author: Dr. Bobby Buka

Alcohol can paradoxically dry out skin by stripping the natural oils from the surface. This is the last thing you want from a facial cleanser! The natural oils found within the skin have been shown to contain beneficial antibiotic, antifungal and antiviral properties. Next time you are choosing a cleanser, pick one that’s alcohol-free in order to keep the skin’s natural protection undamaged.
