  • Noxema...the old fashioned one..put it on and leave it until it dries, then soak it off with a warm washcloth..

  • I really like Neutrogena with Salicylic acid. I have even tried the wal-mart brand and it worked just as well.

  • alright here is my lil secret and i have also pass this along to a few of my patients we all love gonna buy some phillips milk of mag the orig kind will use this at night will wash your face with a gentle cleanser, like cetaphil pat the face dry do not rub because it will just make it will apply the milk of mag with either clean finger tips or cotton balls you will apply this all over the face or just the effect area. you can sleep with it on as well don't worry it will not mess up the sheets, he will feel it tighten like a mask after it tightens you can wash it off or like i mention before just sleep in it ( i do) with a day or two you will notice a difference in his complexion. it can also be use as an on the spot treatment as well....if you have fair skin ladies can put it on in the morning and apply her liquid foundation for a matte look.

  • oh yea NOXEMA is great!!!! it dissolves oil but also moisturizes your skin, i LOVE that stuff
    i also love anything thats foamy when it comes out. i also love scrubs because it gives you shine almost looking like you had microdermabrasion. if you are really serious about it, you can order from because their products are all natural. a bottle is about 16.50 and it does more than just wash your face! salycillic acid (cant spell) is not always the answer! products without alcohol work best :)
    also, try dabbing diluted tea tree oil to your blemishes, they should clear up great!
