An active ingredient is one that is like active against fighting acne, such as salylic acid (sp!?). I think the regimen suggests you get the most basic cleanser possible, and that would mean one without any active ingredients :)

If it hasnt got any ingredients that are actually acne fighting and could mess with BP then it should be okay. I would try it and see how it goes, and I imagine it would be fine- just try not to change your products so much as this is likely to make the regimen less effective! :)

Just read your quote - I use simple wipes but then use a cleanser in the shower - do you think this is too much? I then use CSR and Eucerin. My spots seem to be worse and I am about 5 1/2 weeks into the regime and I seem to be getting more spots than I did befoe I started it - is this normal?

Thanks

Thank you - I am going to try and just use my simple face wipes and skip the face wash in the shower as i think that may be too much and see how that goes. I have been religiously putting on CSR and Moisturiser so my skin is not dry anymore but still the spots keep on coming.

I need to get rid of these soon as it has seriously affected my life over the last few months and I have hardly gone out. I am trying to not let it affect me and I suceed some days but other days it is just too depressing.

Thank you for responding!

Hey Lara

I think its probably best that you do cut out the second face wash and just rinse with water when your in the shower, you don't want to over irritate your skin. Also you could check here to make sure your not making any mistakes that could be stopping your progress http://www.acne.org/biggestmistakes.html. And make sure you're extra gentle when you cleanse, apply BP and moisturise- its these things that really make the difference, along with giving it time to work- some people don't see results up to even the 3 month mark!

Good Luck and I hope things start improving for you soon, keep us posted on what happens! :)
