Best Products/Face washes to clear acne??
[ Edited ]
Hi everyone, I'm 18 and I have acne mostly on my forehead and some on my cheeks. I have pretty oily skin and I use the Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Cream Cleanser and the Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner. They work okay, like some days are better than others, but they have never really gotten rid of my acne. I recently ordered the St. Ives St. Ives Blemish & Blackhead Control Apricot Scrub and the St. Ives Green Tea Scrub to see if they would be any better. I'm not sure it would help though, any thoughts? Thanks everyone! xx

UPDATE:
Hi everyone,
Thank you so much for all the feedback! Much appreciated. I found out that Sephora carries the Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Overnight Repair Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment Pads. Is that a type of product that would help? xx

If your into making things yourself, you can try using Ubtan. Its a face/body mask Indian & Pakistani brides apply to their skin about 10 days before they're wedding, to get clear glowing skin. I've started using it since the new year as a part of my organic new years resolution, and so far it's been clearing up my skin! Its made of turmeric powder, sandalwood powder, wheatgerm oil, rose water, chick pea flour, honey, yogurt, lemon juice...theres different recipes you can use with different ingredients, as long as you include the turmeric powder! Turmeric is ant inflammatory, anti bacterial, and will even skin tone too! Its worth a shot and it beats using face washes full of chemicals..

Hi houseofdiorxo, 

 

I'd suggest you mainly stick to a gel cleanser (creamy or milk cleansers can be too intense and hydrating on the skin if you have acne), avoid any scrubs that are too abrasive as these can make acne worse or spread it around to other parts of the face, and try an oil absorbing toner that can help with breakouts.
