Use a cleanser with salicylic acid for acne and one that can deeply cleanse the skin and unclog pores but of course mild and natural ingredients is still recommended to avoid inflammation and tightened of skin. Use a water-based moisturizer and massage thoroughly all over your face down to neck. Use a toner to deeply cleanse excess oil and dirt that may be left on your pores and exfoliate at least twice weekly to remove excess oil and dirt that clog up pores this can be the major cause of breakouts.
