What is better face wash and witch hazel or face wash and benzoyl peroxide?

What is better face wash and witch hazel or face wash and benzoyl peroxide?

Multiple: Skin specialists recommend face washes based on the condition of the person's skin and what they want to achieve. Using witch hazel will dry out the skin because it has alcohol (not great for the face) and benzoyl peroxide is drying, has some antibacterial action, and is helpful for acne. If your face is dry, you may want a less drying cleanser; if oily, you can try salicylic acid. ...Read more

Never ending pimples. Tried everything from pills to benzoyl peroxide,  salicylic acid, tea tree oil. Wash face twice a day w/ moisturizer. Plz help!

See a dermatologist: If you have been consistent with topical acne preparations which include a benzoyl perioxide produce and a retinol such as Retin A, (tretinoin) Differin, or Tazorac along with oral antibiotics and are not seeing progress, I recommend that you consult a dermatologist.

Got a sunburn and now my face is peeling. Any home remedies to heal/speed up peeling process? Tried face scrubs & Cetaphyl & Aveeno (oatmeal) face lotions

Avoid face scrubs: for sure as this will just irritate your healing skin. I would be very gentle using only cetaphil like non-soap cleansers, and vaniply cream. Skin will heal but if you remove peeling skin you can have scarring. ...Read more
