If I've ever have dry patches of skin, scratched, scars, or sun burned- the best thing to use is Aloe Vera. Bought mines from the company Aubrey Organics, a liquid not crème. If I missed up on my acne medicine by putting too much or combining other acne medicine or if your face turned so red from the acne medicine quickly put only on Aloe Vera. Then the next days, keep putting Aloe Vera, your face is too sensitive to put anything on, needs to heal after all the products you put on. Aloe Vera used on patients with severe burns!

The sulfur I’d used in high school was from De La Cruz 10% sulfur, (Pomada de Azufe)bought mines in Rite aid but don’t know if it’s in everyone else’s, because the ones in L.A bring Latin acne medicine as well. Downside is smells horrible!

Another product I don’t use or tried to use was Alcohol Free Stridex - salicylic acid 0.5% with Aloe company Blistex. Just really dried my skin with the acne medicine I was using.

Another Latin or African acne crème is Nixoderm - a white cream, smells good by Johnson family Company. This is if I every get a big pimple that looks ready to pop, I only use this for my big pimples for only for emergencies. Don’t really use it much anymore because my acne on my face no longer has big pimples anymore more like tiny whiteheads around my face, which I can cover with a concealer. Benzoic Acid 6% Titanium Dioxide10% Salicylic Acid 2.5% Menthol 1.1% Precipitated sulphur. Downside is had to order mines on the internet or try to find in stores, it will be hard but most Latin friends use this product.

Avveno crème used for day time is smart essentials with southernwood SPF 30 Vitamins A, C, E-oil free, hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic Downside is expensive! For me anyway usually 15-20 bucks.

Crème for night time Cetaphil good for dry skin. My mom uses this, she only has a dry face, never had acne in her life! My entire family from cousins as well don’t have acne.

Facial mask- I use only for a week is a Clay Mask from Botanics. Makes my face squeaky clean without the harmful chemicals. Use moisturizer afterwards.
