I have acne an its been getting worse. I was using proactive face wash only at night an either clean an clear sensitive skin in the morning or morning burst clean an clear an my face was getting dry.So I have been using clearly natural soap the unscented one for maybe 4-5 days now an my skin as been pretty oily an I seem to be getting more break outs.I seem to be having trouble finding a regimen that works for me. Is clearly natural good for acne an oily skin?If not could someone give me some suggestions for my skin its sensitive,oily,inflamed pimples and black heads.

The following two links are to websites that list comedogenic ingredients. You can research the ingredients in your product(s) and determine if any might be problematic. The second link is to a PDF so if your computer is old or cranky, your computer might freeze. Remember that the further down on the list of ingredients, the less percentage of that ingredient is in the product. So a comedogenic ingredient that is in the last half of an ingredient list may or may not cause you problems. http://www.zerozits.com/Articles/acnedetect.htm#inglist

You can try soaps like Neutrogena transparent facial bar (castor oil, coconut oil) or some soap with Tea Tree oil. Also, you can use your soap/gel and put some drops of tea Tree Oil or other essential oil that kill bacteria (naouli, geranium, research on that, TTO is the best). You can also mix it with a moisturizer that is non comedonic (Avene, Effaclar, Vichy Normaderm, Garnier, Neutrogena ... test and see if it fits you). Research and find what is best for you.
