  • 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide is the only thing you should be using.

  • You might laugh at me for this, but try olive oil. It really works, I swear! I was my face with Clean & Clear about 2-3 times a week in the mornings but I wipe all my makeup off and put olive oil on with cotton balls on my face. It has made my face super soft and break outs have gone away. Hope this helps. Also, I use witch hazel super stinks to me but great astringent. :)

  • I don't have many issues, but I use Clean & Clear spot treatment for when I do. Also like $5, and works like a charm.

  • I have not found anything good for acne over the counter and I have tried everything out there and it have broke me out even worse. All I use now is proactive, but only when a pimple pops up.
