Which is the best facewash to use for men?

Which is the best facewash to use for men?

Soap and Water: For most men, basic soap and water is the best cleanser. Many prefer ivory, because of the lack of additives. Avoid deodorant soaps. If you have a particular problem with oily skin or dry skin, then one made specifically for oily or dry skin might be preferred.

During the day, some men will use a damp cloth or just water to remove any build up of grime. Over washing can also cause trouble. ...Read more

Neat and clean with: A pleasant disposition is the way to go. That will bring more light to our world than a lighter face. Please don't measure your self-worth by skin color. One day your opinion may reverse and you may want to darken your face.

What is the best product or facewash and ointment I could use to remove excess oil, acne and acne marks? Tnx

Meds: Many patients do well with over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid preparations. Some patients require topical or oral antibiotics or retinoids as well. If the over the counter meds alone don't control your acne after a month of daily use, see a doctor for additional treatment options. It is important to be persistent, and some patients 'get worse before they get better'. ...Read more

I use klinface-a and facewash which is use to remove oil from my face is it really helpfull for me to remove acne qiquly?

Good choice: This is salicylic-acid based, and works through this chemical rather than removing oil. I see you are also on clindamycin; this should not be used as monotherapy but the combination of salicylic acid and Clindamycin is a great start for tougher cases. If you're not clear in a few weeks, your physician will probably try a systemic rx or topical retinoic acid derivative. ...Read more

Do laxatives work against acne? Which is the best facewash gel and medicine for persistent acne?

Laxatives do not hel: I do not think there is a"best"acne wash for medicine. It varies from person to person which is best for them. Sometimes you have to try more than one till you find one that works for you. You need to see a dermatologist and start with one or two and see how it works out. Remember all acne medicine are meant to prevent pimples. They all take several weeks for maximum effectiveness. Good luck! ...Read more

Facewash either drys face giving acne or if it doesn't dry it out, clogs pores giving acne. If I don't wash, feels oily. How do I find right balance?

Dry not the target: Your face should have a certain amount of oil. Drying it out only causes the sebacious glands to start secreting more oil. Proper professional cleansers should help. Visit an esthetician to get proper guidance. Avoid cleansers with any alcohol in them, including astringents. ...Read more

Dermatologist: You need to see a dermatologist about this. Already you've had a serious adverse reaction to an over-the-counter topical medication. Please don't try another skin whitening product. Also, don't use any creams or scrubs that may cause irritation. Inflammation & irritation will only make things worse. Best wishes. ...Read more

For prescription treatments you may be prescribed antibiotics, retinoids or vitamin a derivatives, azelaic acid, oral contraceptives, or spironolactone.

I have running nose n sneezing all d time n whole yr specially after facewash. Which medicine should I take?

Depends: You may have sinus disease or allergies. If "over the counter" dose of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) changes your symptoms, this would guide you to seek help with allergies. Read the ingredients on your facewash and try something different. If the problem is worse with your head down, think sinus, tonsils, or dental problems. ...Read more
