I’ve been using a Neutrogena Body Clear scrub and it’s helped a little.  I’m goig to get the Body Clear Body Wash from them b/c I don’t like using the scrub every day.

I get breakouts on my chest and back after workouts at the gym.  I’m using Neutrogena Clear Body wash.  They’ve help me.  Also I use Proactive Facial wash for my face but you can also use this on your back.  They really clear the breakouts.

Neutrogena body clear scrub works excellent for my post workout chest breakouts.  I’ve got pretty sensitive skin and i think it works well.

Neutrogena body wash is what i use and its great but really drying at times….but does anybody have acne scarring too?

What do you use for it?  I’ve been faithful to mederma for a while but it doesn’t seem to be working…

I have acne on my face and back.  For a few months I’ve been using Acne Free.  It’s one of those three part systems.  It compares itself to Proactive.  I’ve never used Proactive, but Acne Free has worked very well for me.  I never thought it would.  And I think it is cheaper than Proactive.  (And you can just get it at Target or Costco.)

I’ve seen practically no acne on my face.  Very little.  My back has a bi more.  But honestly, it’s because it’s my back and a bigger pain to apply to my back.  So I don’t use it as often, on my back.

I think the directions are to use it at least once (maybe twice a day.)  I don’t use it that often.  I use the wash (the first step) in the shower every morning, on my back and face.  Then I’ll use all three parts (wash, toner, lotion) , on my face every other day or so on my face.

Oxy in a black bottle… 10% benzol peroxide.  My dermatologist recommended it to me.

Watch out for the benzyol peroxide, though — it can bleach things like your bath towels and bedsheets.

I use the Neutrogena scrub. I don’t use it every day because of what other posters have said about it drying skin out, but I’ll use it every few days or after a particularly sweaty workout/day.
