Hi bunny,

I was obsessed with washing and toning....I still kind of am, and have to remind myself that this condition I have is from NOT washing and toning with the wrong stuff.

Basically the idea here is to wash with something gentle. Toning I have come to realize, is something to avoid. Lots of them contain alcohol which can be irritating.

There are lots of non-soap gentle cleansers out there, and it really is a matter of personal preference. Some choices: Purpose gentle wash or moisturizing version of the wash, Cetaphil for oily skin, Eucerin gentle hydrating cleanser, Olay foaming wash, Alpha hydrox gentle foaming wash. I stay away from washes that contain BP or salicylic acid, not because these are not effective ingredients, but because I am on prescription topicals that could be drying if combined with those things.

I recently was given a prescription wash called Plexion that has sulfer in it that I wash with in the morning, and I am using Purpose gentle wash in the evening.

Hope this info is helpful and good luck. :)
