Natural acne cleansers(cheap)

I used to have great skin and lately it's been horrible. I tend to break out a lot when I'm stressed and I am getting those big, red painful pimples. Any cheap cleansers and moisterzers. Or even ideas to get my skin clear again? I've thought about putting breastmilk on my face, but I don't produce enough with the pump to be able to do that. =[.

  • baking soda. it helps suck the grease and dirt off your face and yet also softens your skin. it's the only thing i use now. ...and you cant get much cheaper then baking soda. 6 dollars for a 12 pound bag at Costco.

  • Do you make it into a paste? How do you do it?

  • yea. just a little bit goes a long way. i just put a little in a cup and add a little water to make it smooth paste and then rub it on my face. feels a bit gritty. takes a few times to get used to it. ...but i used to have dry skin when i used any kind of commercial product and oily skin if i didnt use a face wash at all. Now my skin is nearly perfect.

  • Just don't rub it too hard as it can be quite abrasive. Google homemade facewashes. There are tons. :) We did homemade scrubs with sugar and essential oils. Have fun

  • plain Oatmeal (yep the kind you eat - the long cooking type is the best) use it as a facial scrub. mix with a little water or a very mild soap. then apply lemon juice to the acne areas. old fashion...but works great.

  • Avon makes a line up called Clearskin for acne that is cheaper than the generic stuff you'll find at Walmart but it works really well. You can get it at use code fsany for free shipping too. Good Luck!

  • I really doubt the questionnaire is wanting to buy Avon. Sounds more like she wants a more natural cleanser.
