    Hibiclens for face may not be a good idea

    Saw a post telling ppl to try to use Hibiclens for acne prone skin as a face washer since it has great antibacterial properties. Although the company concent sounds great, I don't know if that is a good idea. I suffer from acne as well am an MRSA carrier so the combination of the two can be just bad sometimes. What people are failing to realize is that hibiclens is used to rid the area of bacteria. But it's something that is used when you are preparing for surgery or used to clean and open wound. It's awesome, but it's also very potent. The problem with beginning to use it every day is that when you need it, like if you end up having surgery, it may not work because you have become immune. It isn't intended for daily use indefinitely. Sure, a few days in a row won't hurt. But not twice a day every day. I read some ppl starting breaking out. That's probably because there is something in it that clogs the pores and causes the breakout. Like I said, it's not made for every day facial use. I would just be cautious because once your immune to certain things, that can really cause a problem once you need them and it does work.
