Question face wash or soap? doctor told me to use simple soap or baby soap......

was thinking of trying a face wash instead of baby soap I am using, simple soap seems ok but makes me break out in spots on my cheeks and on my nose/under my eyes

all though it does seem good soap to stop break outs on my neck, I was thinking of trying simple face wash instead as thats !00% natural...

anyhows any feedback on if you people on here think a face wash or a bar soap is best? would be appreciated.................

Hey beatboxkid, do you have super sensitive skin? If you can handle it try this: I have been using the Zap It soap that has 10%BP in it 2 times daily. Seems to really help, but can be a bit drying. One catch, you have to be sure to rinse well or it bleaches everything just like the cream BP.

I was also using the Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser with good results for several months. However, it seems a few times a year my skin get used to a routine and I end up having to switch up to something else. Hense the Zap It soap bar.

I have also tried a bar called Pan Oxyl too. It also has BP in it and is much more drying (in my opinion) than the Zap It bar. However, I'm not sure off hand - what the strength of BP is in the Pan Oxyl bar. Great if you have super oily skin though.

Good luck!

Falcone - I did the ACV in the shower for years on my skin. I did find it very helpful when I was younger. I also took/ingested a few tsp. daily and it helped me have control over the breakout etc. with a great turn over rate. But for some reason as I have gotten older it seems that I couldn't get those old dark spots to fade as well. Plus it kind of made my skin a bit 'leathery' looking. I suspect I was being too aggressive and dried it out too much...

How often do you use it? How are your results? I think it's a great natural choice to balance out ph etc. especially if one can get it to work long term.

Your thoughts?
