What type of facewash do you bees use to keep clear skin? I’m in my mid twenties and still have acne problems. Not so much pimples anymore but I have a lot of whiteheads under the skin and when I try to dig them out it leads to scarring or nothing being accomplished more often than not. I used to use a Neutrogena face wash and St Ives scrub. I still use the st Ives scrub but have switched to Aveeno since it’s natural and my Future Mother-In-Law had good results with it but my whiteheads are still an issue. I even used proactive when I was younger and it was okay but not worth the money and did not give me this wow clear skin like it says. So any tips or recommendations??

African Black Soap! Once you try it you’ll never go back. That’s all I trust to put on my face anymore.

For whiteheads under the skin, I spot-treat with Clean & Clear’s PersaGel 10. I find that I need something strong to bring them to a head. I don’t find that face wash itself does much, as you only have it on your face for a minute or so. Maybe try using a make-up remover before you wash your face, and steam your pores afterwards with a hot wash cloth? That should help keep your pores clear.

I use a generic salicylic acid apricot scrub. Then I use a salicylic acid toner and then apply 10% benzoyl peroxide spot treatment. I’ve had acne since I was 13…now I’m 29. I used to use proactive, but it cost too much and didn’t work too well.

Burt’s Bees has an acne treatmeant that works really well. I use it on pimples and they clear up very quickly. I like it because it’s natural and not too harsh on my skin. In general, to tone my skin, I just use witch hazel. It’s natural and I find it works really well.
Not directly related to face wash, but I use an oil free moisturizer as I get fairly oily in my T zone. I use the one by Alba Botanica. It’s about $15 for a jar, but it makes a huge difference for me. It doesn’t clog my pores.
