I have acne & can I use an Ayurvedic soap free acne face wash which contains neem & turmeric as main ingredients and it has also no harmful chemicals?
This sounds okay: Dr. Baker is one of my favorite teammates here and he's almost certainly right about when it's okay to use ayurvedic remedies as your major treatment and when they're only adjuncts.

Soap not the answer: Acne is a major chronic disease that in spite of what anybody may have told you is not the result of your diet or your poor hygiene. Topical benzoyl peroxide is the only thing you can buy yourself that can do much. Failing this, get with your physician. The oral contraceptive pill, a topical agent like clindamycin, or something stronger will be able to clear you -- depends on what's right for you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it bad to wash yourself with soap three times over in the shower? I often do this. Is it bad to be exposed to this many chemicals?
Unlikely: However, it is curious that you have a specific number of times that you do this every time.
