I recommend Neutrogena Products...pore refining cleanser, transparent clear soap bar and for red marks use their multi-vitamin acne treatment. Also, st.ives apricot scrub is good. For big cyst use queen helene mint jelup on the zit. good luck

Cleansers :

- Cetaphil Gentle cleanser – this is gentle but it can leave a film on the skin if u do not rinse really good , if this happened (sp?) stop using it. (I use it in the mornings and I like it) (10 cdn for a huge bottle)

- Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser – this cleanses really good, no residue behind but it can be drying. (7$ cdn)

- Alpha Hydrox Moisturizing Cleanser – thins washes good, no residue and it is less drying then Neutrogena FFC, great stuff IMO. 98-9 cdn )

- Topix Ultra Gentle Cleanser – this is great, gentle (it’s made for people that are on retin a or has laser resurfacing) . ( 9$ but only online)

Moisturizers :

- Jason 98% Aloe Vera Gel - this stuff was great for me, it gives me enough moisture but no pimples and it’s cheap and natural, helps heal the wounds and red spots from previous pimples.

Treatments :

- Alpha Hydrox Oil Free Formula – this was great for me , it healed my acne in weeks.

- Neutrogena Night Clear Por Gel – if seems to work for me, it has 2% salicylic acid but I keep reading that the ph is too high or the ph it’s right, well , it worked ok, it’s cheap (10$) so I am still using it.

Masks :

- Green Clay – I get half a kg. of natural green clay and I use it once a week in combination with water, aloe vera gel, honey , tea tree oil etc. I have tried a lot of clay masks but all irritated my skin a lot (Queen Helene MJM burned me , I had a burn wound for a week !!!) like this I eliminate the preservatives and other unnecessary oils and irritants that the manufacturer uses in these masks.
