Here's my daily routine before bed and when I wake up. Night: Splash face with warm water a few times. Use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (available at any drugstore) for about a minute. Rub face gently. Wash cleanser off with warm water. Pat face dry with designated face towel, which is changed weekly. Pop any pimples that have visible pus on the surface; this means they are ready to be taken out. Apply a small amount of 5% benzoyl peroxide, followed by 1% Clindamycin Phosphate onto any pimples. Rinse hands to get rid of any acne medication. Apply Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion to any areas without pimples. Day: Wash face again with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, then apply Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion to face/neck. http://www.amazon.com/Cetaphil-Gentl...0920147&sr=8-1 http://www.amazon.com/Cetaphil-Fragr...0920147&sr=8-3
Buy the pump over the jar version of face products so bacteria is less likely to form. Get non-comedogenic and fragrance-free products. Eucerin products are even better for really dry skin, but I like Cetaphil for non-irritating, fragrance-free products. Use Eucerin Moisturizing Lotion for the rest of your body, remember to always buy fragrance-free products.
