I use this acne face wash on my face. How else can I get rid of acne? Does lavender soap help?

In brief: Depends on product

What's in the face wash? Is it a synthetic detergent or does it contain benzoyl peroxide? Mild detergents can be combined with other treatments such as benzoyl peroxide and antibiotics to help heal acne lesions.
Avoid harsh soaps that may irritate the skin. See your family doctor or a dermatologist to find a treatment program that is best for you.
