What is a good product for your face to keep it clean. Any brand? What about some natural stuff?

My mom and also a friend use proactive and say it works well for them.. I think boiling a pot of hot water and let the steam go in your face helps. it opens the pores, when your done just wash with a gentle soap..

That proactive is a load of sh*t look at the ingredience ,, you can make your own . dont let the big fancy names put you off go to your pharmasy and they will have the stuff or they will tell you how to get it ... you will be amazed how little it costs .. if you work with lables whats on top is the most in the product and work your way down .. easy ... you can even make your own perfume ...

I think hot water would be the safest way, if your alergic to cream etc. I'll probaly try it out tonight before I go to bed.

Wash your face with a gentle, oil- and fragrance-free cleanser; preferably a nondetergent one labeled pH balanced. If you have oily skin all over your face, use a cleanser that contains benzoil peroxide or salicylic acid. Don't scrub - irritated skin swells around the pores, which can cause breakouts. Skip toner unless your face is very oily, otherwise it might dry out the skin. TREAT! Apply a topical acne treatment containing benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, or salicylic acid over your entire face, not just where blemishes have already erupted. At night, use a drying spot-treatment product and dab oil-free moisturizer on dry areas. In the morning, apply an oil-free sunscreen gel over the entire face. CONCEAL! Use a small makeup brush to dab concealer or cream foundation Evangeline Lilly (in the exact same shade as your skin) directly onto the blemish. Use a fingertip to wipe away excess concealer around the blemish and, if necessary, apply another coat of concealer. If the makeup becomes cakey, carefully wipe it off and start over. gently brush powder (in the exact same shade as your skin) on top of the concealer.

just wash your face with warm soapy water .. when we were young we used to soak a face washer in hot water and put it on our face [ but dont burn yourself ] once youve done that while your pause are open wash with warm soapy water and rinse then dry your face then put face cream on .......
