Yes, cleansing balms can potentially cause breakouts, although it depends on various factors such as individual skin type and the specific formulation of the cleansing balm. Cleansing balms are typically oil-based and are designed to dissolve makeup, dirt, and excess sebum on the skin. While they can be effective at removing impurities, some cleansing balms may leave a residue on the skin, especially if they are not properly rinsed off. This residue can potentially clog pores and lead to breakouts. Additionally, certain ingredients in cleansing balms, such as fragrances or comedogenic oils, may also contribute to acne or irritation in some individuals. It is important to choose a cleansing balm that is suitable for your skin type and to thoroughly rinse off any residue after use to minimize the risk of breakouts.
