I know you probably have heard it all. I found out that if you use a mild cleanser--and yes, Dawn dishwashing liquid can be used, that it clears up. I accidentally found out because I got poison ivy recently and had to use it to get the poison oils out. 3 days later I was clear. And I have the acne that hides under the skin, making my face red and sore and then it erupts. The other thing is to get as much air and sunlight on the face as possible. My dermatologist told me that I could continue using Dawn--it has to be dawn--and go tanning about 5 minutes everyday or 10 every other day. It helps dry out the skin and tone it. I also used Proactiv, but I found out that you have to use it all the time. I thought after it cleared my skin I could stop using it and a week later it was worse than ever. Keep your face clean, but don't scrub. Wash with a cleanser in the evening, and then just a clean damp cloth when you get up. Another drying technique is the paste--toothpaste. It does quick fixes and it doesn't smell bad! Hope this helps honey, I definatly know what you are going through. Please keep me posted on your progress. These are inexpensive ways to do it. If it gets worse call the derm and get an anti-inflamatory (motrin) and an antibiotic just for this. Best of luck!!

Thank you and happy halloween to you too. Remember the commercial "Dawn takes the grease out of your way". This is how we knew it would take the poison ivy oil off our skin. It dries the pores out. Best of luck to you!!

Hey Lisa :) One thing that seemed to work for me was a honey/aloe vera mask. You can either put an equal amount of each in the mix, or a little more honey. But after you make the mask, keep it on for 30 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water. And then after it is all washed off, you should spalsh some cold water on your face to tighten the pores up a little bit. Do the honey/vera mask about 2 times a week, 30 minutes each time. You can also try sleeping with the mask on, but obvisouly that can be very messy and uncomfortable!!

Yeah I don't like wearing stuff to bed either, with the exception of Aloe Vera (no honey). Aloe Vera really helps soften the skin, and if I lay on my back for a little bit while I'm still awake it seems to dry a little bit so I don't worry so much about getting it on the sheets or anything. Plus it isn't as sticky and uncomfortable as honey, it is actually really light and hardly noticable.

I've tried the Body SHop's tea tree oil products as well and though it provided temporary relief, it wasn't enough. I really got clear skin thanks to Proactiv. I used the line for three years or so before I finally stopped. When I stopped, my acne came back. I've been trying out different new products and so far only Benzac wash has worked for me. Aside from a good facial cleanser, you should also exercise and get enough sleep for your skin to look healthy. :)
