Since 2000, I have been washing my face with Benzoyl Peroxide 4% Creamy Wash. Sounds worse than it actually is. The creamy wash has the key ingredient that the acne industry is going crazy with--Ha, you guessed it--Benzoyl peroxide. I ceased usage for about a year and a half because of insurance issues, and my face broke out like no other. Benzoyl peroxide is manufactured by Global Leader in Dermatology: Stiefel. Unless I am using a facial scrub (something like St. Ives Apricot Scrub), I will only wash my face with BP.
I am prescribed this creamy wash. Most of the things I use on my face are prescribed by my dermatologist. I have sensitive skin, so I have to be careful as to not use something that will irritate it *cough*PROACTIVE*cough*. If you can't afford to go to a dermatologist, look for a face wash whose active ingredient is Benzoyl peroxide. Just be careful when using the product. BP has a tendency to dry out your skin, so it's best to use it once a day at first. You want your skin to get used to the intense drying that will occur. Once your skin is used to it, then use the face wash twice a day.
What do you use to wash your face?
