What do you use on your face???
I was just wondering what you guys use for face wash/acne cream etc... I am beginning to get zits again, not many, but they do show up when I am very active. Right now I use cetaphil face wash and I dont use any acne meds/creams. The face wash kinda sux and I wanna switch to something else. Only problem is that most other face washes dry my skin out..any help is appreciated

What about pro active solution, it worked for jessica

Nivea has a line for men that might work for you...also Aveeno is a good product.
Clean skin followed by a light moisturizer will help.
I've known people that have used Proactive and it seemed to work well for them.

I hate proactiv.
Apricot medicated face wash, along with Noxzema Super clean.
After the shower use astringent with a cotton pad. Then put clean and clear spot treatment and follow with cetaphil lotion.

stick with the cetephil as a cleanser it is cheap and good for washing then pick up a clear nighttime face treatment neutrogena has a blemish mask (salasylic acid) then you can spot treat with persagel used to be by prescription only.

OK DUDE you need to get one of these face sponges they sell them like at kmart and **** and a face soap and then follow it with some face cleanser because scrubbing your face with the scrubber tears and rips the dirt and **** away and then when you put your treatment or preventer it allows it to work better and ive done 3 cycles and my first one i had bad acne second one i learned what to do and my face is fine and i dont use anything specials i have some clearisel stuff and thats it! well i use stridex pads sometimes at work too!

If you cannot get Shisedo where you are Lab series is okay (the blue stuff). Retin-A will help with you acne.

for spot treatment of zits, JSN highly recommends toothpaste.
for washing tree tree soap (i believe by paul mitchell) has treated me great- cuts through oil but very gentle.
dish soap really can be good if you're having major problems, but try to moisturize like it's your job (after rinsing in really cold water) with lots of aloe vera after.

If you dry out your skin too much (washing too much, or using something harsh like detergent for DISHES) your skin will sense this ph balance shift, and produce MORE OIL to compensate, thus making your skin problems worse!
I cleanse twice per day, and use Clearasil 3 in 1 face wash (salicylic acid) and then follow with Oil of Olay age defying renewal cream (salicylic acid also) and I haven't had a zit since............well, I can't even remember! You must moisturize.
Drinks lots of water as well, flush those toxins out from the inside too.
