Hand Sanatizers

I was wondering if anyone here uses hand sanitizers on thier face. Since bacteria cause pimples, and antibiotics help with acne, I figure anti bacterial hand sanatizers must kill all acne causing bacteris on the surface of the face. I'm starting this myself and wonder if anyone else has tried this?

I know bacteria causes acne under the skin in a clogged pore, so I guess BP absorbs through to the infected area, and I read that Neosporin does a similar thing so I wonder if hand sanitizers will kill bacteria through the skin. I mostly have acne under my chin, so I'm going to try using hand sanatizer on my face, after washing, then applying BP. If that doesn't work I don't know what will.

Yes, it would technically help.

But they are so irritating and drying, you'll probebly just make your problem worse.
