When my children began to get acne, I took them to a dermatologist and he said to wash their face twice a day with Dove bar soap and a clean washcloth. For an astringent he said to use Witch Hazel to suck up all the oil. Most of the major brands are only after your wallet. His best advice was to keep the children from touching the acne, as that is how it is spread. Don't try and pop any of the whiteheads or blackheads, let them come to a head by themselves and with the daily washing and astringent use, they would open on their own without leaving a pock mark. He also said to smash up 1/2 of a very ripe avocado and add regular oatmeal into a paste and use that as a facial once a month. After the first couple of weeks, we saw dramatic reductions in pimples, and we did not have to break the bank to do it.

I find it cheapest at organic food stores, but you can pay an extra buck or two and get it at safeway, there is also a website
They have a acne care line but honestly it's a waste of money, the bar soap is the same thing, less pay

Here is how my teen handles her acne: wash your face twice a day with a very mild soap (like unscented baby soap) and a soft wash cloth; follow with a light, oil free moisturizer (like Just Tomatoes or Lush). Once a day, before you wash your face, put on a honey mask (just honey, a great anti-bacterial). Every three days add a pinch of baking soda to the honey to exfoliate. Check back with me in two weeks and tell me how this worked
Several CafeMoms have let me know that this works for them, too.
Also, make sure that he drinks lots of water, and eats vegetables and whole grains.
