Any Kind of Face Wash, Scrub or Soap aggravating ACNE.

Hi,

I am 22 and havin inconsistent acne since I was 16. I used to be clear most of the year except for few occasional mild breakouts every few months. But since the last 6 months I am havin this severe form of Acne.. I did not actually care abt it untill the last month coz I thought it would go away by itself... But I was alaramed to see those ugly scars on my face.. I started using BP, and quit Whey Protein and most of the dairy products. It seemed to control it to an extent..

But a few days ago I noticed that whenever I wash my face with a Face wash or a Facial scrub or a face soap, the pimples got redder and during the day they turn white and also new pimples appear.

I started washing my face only with water since the last 4 days and was surprised to see they actually decreased. {Pics included}

The problem is I cannot keep on washing my face only with water all my life :P.. Has any1 here been through this situation..? DO u recommend something with which I could wash my face.. :P

Thanks in Advance

I wanted to try cetaphil.. But looking at the results I am getting without using anything on my face, I am actually scared to try anything chemical :D..

I used a homemade Honey+ACV today, it felt good.. Can it be a good replacement for a regular facial cleanser..?

Thnanks for the Inputs

Have you tried Purpose? Purpose is as close to water as you'll get, but yet it removes all of the yucky stuff you don't want on your face. There aren't any harsh chemicals or anything that would clog pores in it either. Clean & Clear also has a face wash that has the SAME exact ingredients, but that is a bit cheaper. It's Clean & Clear Foaming Facial Cleanser for sensitive skin. The only differnce I've noticed that is that Purpose lathers a little bit better. Other than that, they are the same. You can buy either one pretty much anywhere. I bought mine at Wal-Mart.

I bought Purpose last week and it worked pretty well, no new breakouts..

Now my next concern is to get rid of those nasty scars like holes on my face..

I know exactly what you're going through, warm water is the most forgiving cleanser on earth, most acne products actually make things worse especially for your type of acne. Keep doing the water thing, your skin looks healthier and you probably notice your skin is less irritated after just using warm water and a clean towel. If it aint broke dont fix it, you will probably still find that you get acne when using just water but the amount has decreased significantly. I would strongly suggest you get a moisturizer to combat the acne you already have and prevent from getting anymore acne. I strongly recommend skin MD natural 'shielding lotion', it's done wonders for me, i had a few large nodule acnes on the ridge of my brow it got so big it looked almost dime sized.. so i put a heaping amount of skin MD on and it significantly decreased in size in 24 hours! literally it shrunk half it's size in 24 hours no joke. Skin is about 70% water, and when your skin is dehydrated like your you see the white flakes in your skin, it looks dull and un-appealing. You need to put the moisture back in your face so your skin can begin to repair itself, you will notice your skin will repair it self faster when you have moisturized the heck out of your face! keep your head up man, your acne isnt THAT bad but you are in serious need of moisture. peace.

You could always try Dan's AHA. It helps even skin tone and exfoliates. Might be worth a shot.
