Clean and Buff: Clean: start with conservative measures for whiteheads and oily skin. A cleaning routine is necessary. Consider soaps with dead sea salts which provide a drying effect. Benzoyl peroxide is the main stay for topical therapy for acne. It can be purchased over the counter. Keep your hands off your face. Buff: microdermabrasion along with exfoliants. If these measures fail, physician review.
