I completely changed my cleanser routine ever since i got to college because i know i need to clean deeper now. The best to use to is a cleanser that contains Salicylic acid, which is a BHA. Unlike AHA, BHA can actually penetrate your pores to clean deeper. But when you are buying a cleanser, watch out for the ingredients, that are some that make your acne worse. For example, i used Clear Pore with Tea Tree Oil by ST.Ives. After i started using it, i began to broke out more, despite the fact that it contains Salicylic acid. So i started doing some research on it. I realize that the second ingredients in it is Sodium Laureth Sulfate. Even though it is just a foaming agent, it cause blackheads, damages your skin and could cause cancer. I had these huge bright red pimple, and i would have a new one everyday. After i stopped using that and which to a different cleanser with BHA, my skin started to clear up again. So watch out for Sodium laureth Sulfate and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, they are both bad. I would suggest using BHA only at night, because it kinda makes your skin peel a bit, so time for you skin to heal at night. Also you don't want to over exfoliate your skin. In the morning i use a gentle herbal soap. The one that i use, and swear by, is Kiss My Face Herbal or Chamomile soap. They are wonderful. They are organic so they dont' have any potential harmful ingredients, natural moisturizing. When i was a home, they were all i use to keep my acne away, and they did a great job. Chamomile, Thyme, and Calendula are great for treating acne. They are only $3.00 for an 8 oz bar, they will last you forever. Well, i hoped this helped.
