The best cleansers for dry skin under $50

Flaky, chapped skin be gone! Here are the best cleansers to heal dry skin.

Just like combination skin and oily skin, dry skin has it's pros and cons. It's great being able to go through the day and not need to touch up your makeup or worry about your forehead looking as shiny as patent leather. But then again, dry skin can make the signs of ageing (like wrinkles) look more obvious and without proper nourishment, dry skin can age faster.

This is why buying cleansers when you have dry skin is a tricky business. Your skin needs extra hydration and nourishment, not the deep-cleaning and oil-banishing cleansers that will only dry your skin out even more. People with dry skin need to look out for cleansers that are gentle, non-drying or specially formulated for dry skin.
