Is there any side-effects to washing you're face with normal soap? I think i heard somehwere that it dries your skin and increases oil production... but i'm not sure. After i heard that i stopped washing my face with soap.

:boohoo:

But isn't that the point though, for your face to be dried? Because pimples/acne are caused my oily skin and dead skin cells trapped so having dry skin would stop acne from forming?

Currently Im using Neutrogena Transparent Facial Bar... Its pretty good.. Ive been using it for about 1, 1/2 weeks.

Well as I understand the drier your skin gets, the more oil your face has to produce to make up for it as the natural oils are stripped away from your face... So maybe a little dryness is ok, but excessive will give you new breakouts.
