Thumbs down spots wah! - March 29th 2010, 04:34 PM

Usually my spots arn't so bad, but recently they have been sore and i get alot on my chin and hair line area...i wash my hair every night so it can't be greasy hair...
I was wondering if anyone knew any good facial washes or creams that accually work?
Especially ones for everyday use..

thanks for the help

Hey,

Your best bet is to use a mild ph neutral soap - something specifically designed for sensitive skin.
OR alternatively you could just use cotton balls, and water. What you'd need to do is open up your pores with cotton dipped in warm water and then just close your pores by splashing your face with cold water.

The thing is, over the counter scrubs and stuff claim to be cleansing and stuff but they just irritate your skin further.

Good luck =]

I use Spectro Jel. It works somewhat for me..

Anything with Witch Hazel works wonders for my skin.

I agree with witch hazel being a good natural solution to spots and I find that quite affective, but for another alternative solution, I'd have to suggest tea tree oil - it's wonderful for clearing up spots. Something natural should be alright if your spots are mild, but there is also another alternative such as benzoyl peroxide which is stronger and can be prescribed from your doctor or bought over the counter in your local pharmacy.

Take care.

You can purchase witch hazel in a gel, stick or a face wash, whichever is more helpful to you. If there's a specific area which is being problematic then it may be easier to purchase it in a gel or stick. You can purchase it from Boots.
