I'm currently using Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash (tea tree oil and other good stuff; about $14 on amazon for a huge 32oz bottle), and cetaphil on a daily basis. Keeping it simple and cheap. I do have AHA+ lotion, 2.5% BP wash and gel, but I'm going to cut them out as I wasn't happy with the results from the month I used them.
I exfoliate and wash with the desert essence in the shower, dry off and wait 5 mins, then moisturize, making sure to rub the moisturizer into my skin thoroughly. I started this "regime" a couple days ago but haven't noticed much of a difference yet. I also keep my shirt off as much as possible when at home (no solid reasoning for this other than to avoid irritation). Other things to consider: I eat pretty well, work out 3x a week, drink lots of water, use fragrance-free detergent, and generally don't have a lot of stress in my life.
Anyone else using Tea Tree Oil or have other recommendations? I'll report back periodically with pictures to see if it clears up. It'd be nice to keep my shirt off in public this summer!
