I have acne problem as its clearing more and more are coming out and apart from using clean and clear & aveeno, (oatmeal) what else can be used?

Benzoyl peroxide 5: Acne is a very common skin disorder in teenagers and young adults. It is due to hormones and genetics. Benzoyl peroxide gels are over the counter, cheap, and work to kill p.Acnes and reduce the inflammation caused when hair follicles are ruptured. If this doesn't work, go see a dermatologist who can prescribe oral antibiotics and topical retinoids. The soap you are using is of lesser importance.

Aveeno (oatmeal) on dry face with acne?

Aveeno (oatmeal) on dry face with acne?

Better options exist: When you have acne, you do not want to dry out your face, as it leads to compensatory oil production. Gentle cleansing is best. A foaming or gel cleanser with therapeutic amounts of compounds like salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid or beta hydroxy acid. Stay away from scrubs or buff pads. For thorough cleansing, use your cleanser with the clarisonic skin care brush.

Would you recommend aveeno (oatmeal) products or tea trill skin line from the body shop for acne and oily skin?

Would you recommend aveeno (oatmeal) products or tea trill skin line from the body shop for acne and oily skin?

Your choice: Aveeno (oatmeal) has some pricey, relatively weak salicylic acid glamourized with soy for some reason. Tea tree as an oil that's an estrogen and has made guys grow breasts. How abut getting serious? If topical benzoyl peroxide (dirty-cheap) as tolerated hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength rx.

Dry skin/eczema: It's recommended to use plain white moisturizers two times a day, use less warm wate for bath or showers, use soaps or bath gel for sensitive skin (better to go with in colored and non fragrant or non scented, also gently tapping skin to dry than rubbing with towel is also recommended.
