Anyone know a good cream to exfoliate the face? Does it even help with acne? I get pimple about an inch below my lower lip on each corner of my chin, no where else. 

 

Looking to purchase something at wal mart. 

 

Thanks

AHA is a great chemical exfoliator. Besides that, a Clarisonic brush helps tremendously with exfoliating. Oil of Olay also has a cost efficient version that I've heard many good things about... Hopefully that helps.. :)

Baking soda is an awesome CHEAP and effective exfoliator. Make a paste with water or with your regular everyday cleanser.

 

I will also second the endorsement of AHA.

I started using mineral fusion's enzyme scrub and it's the only scrub so far that hasn't irritated my face. Sometimes I spot treat with it as I wash my face and it helps big bumps go down. You won't find it at walmart, but it's available in some health food stores and online, and it's pretty cheap.

I tried salt scrubs before but after a few days my skin gets worse.


Edited by WishClean, 14 June 2013 - 09:03 PM.

Supplements: inositol, DIM, digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3.

Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials... (although I have been slacking lately)

** Find the cause, find the cure **
