the "active" parts of your acne should be thought of as any place on your face that has had a pimp/has pimples.

this is a way of judging what part(s) of your skin have the bacteria.

The way to kill the bacteria is put it over all the active parts of the skin, killing the bacteria and thus not having acne.

did that help?

Yes that person is right ^^... just putting a topical on active acne only stops the problem at hand depending on the topical you're using. Applying it all over the parts you break out is a preventative measure to stop breaking out all together.

I really don't there would be a difference. If you dab then most likely you're going to using more and depending on the topical that could be bad. I think as long as you're gentle it'll be ok.

how is a person supposed to put in on every spot where they have gotten acne? wouldnt that dry out and irritate the skin if it was clear, but potentially a breakout spot? it doesnt sound too good for the skin...
