Post College 2 Day Camping Trip- Help Me

To start off my first year off college I'm going on this school hiking/camping trip for 2 days with other freshmen. The problem is that I will not be able to wash my face and that'll lead to a breakout. There are no showers, sinks, etc. Does anyone know if theres a good portable cleansing wipe or something like that on the market that won't interact with my other topicals (retin-a micro, triaz, clindamyacin)? Thanks for your help.

find a cleanser toner that doesnt need to be rinsed off. witch hazel or teno six lotion. get some cotton rounds and soak in plastic baggy that seals like a zip lock then you can keep it in a pocket or something to cleanse whenever you need.

Neutrogena's Alcohol-Free toner works very well. It's a clear solution for sensitive skin. It has orange writing on a clear bottle. Try it and see if it works. It's pretty decent stuff.

they never made me do anything like that as a freshman...thank god!
Believe it or not, baby wipes work really well. Just check the ingredients for any irritants and you're good to go. If baby wipes freak you out a bit, Basic brand makes a decent cleansing cloth that's nice and gentle and comes in a nice airtight container. Just use a couple to wipe, and you don't need to rinse.

I use Ponds Make up removing towelettes. They work good for me on those nites when I get home late and don't feel like washing my face. Plus they seem to make my skin less oily.
