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. ...it 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 www.youravon.com/dhullum 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.
