  • I have the same problem. I use a mixture of witch hazel and rubbing alcohol, about 4 parts wh to 1 pt. alcohol, on a cotton ball all over after I shower. Make sure you moisturize super well, if your face isn't moisturized it'll make it's own and we don't want that oil!

  • Look for a facial cleanser and lotion for acne. Use as directed when you wake up and before you go to bed. I recommend using neutrogena and make sure the facial cleanser and lotion goes together as in don't get neutrogena facial cleanser and then a different brand of facial lotion. Make sure your hands are clean before cleaning your face. Also limit greasy, fried, sugary foods in your diet. Drink lots of water to keep your skin hydrated.

  • well sometimes acne is caused by not enough moisture in the skin so that would probably clear up both problems if you used something like Mary Kay velocity cleanser and moisturizers which are for acne prone skin and you could get a Mary Kay acne treatment gel to help with the extra problem areas....all 3 would total to $29 and as a first time ordering discount you would get 25% off which would bring your new total to only $21.75 . I give the discount because i know you might hesistate to try something new and I know you will love the mary kay products once you try them.
    I can also send you samples of the products before you decide if you'd like to buy them or not

  • Murad!!!! It's a miracle skincare system that cleared up my severe adult acne in a matter of days, while nothing else worked.
