actually soap can irratate acne, stripping skin of its natrual oils which it needs, then causing an excessive amount of oil to produce which will make the problem much worse.
** Try this-
Half a cup of tumeric
A garlic clove or two
A tomatoe/ and or a couple of strawberries
Half a lemon
Crush and blend these ingredients together to make a paste.
The tomatoes/ and or strawberries contain natrual enzymes which will dissolve excess oils and skin cells, harmlessly.
The lemon is a natrual astrigent and also has a mild peeling effect.
The tumeric is wonderful for spots and helping to get rid of superficial scarring.
** On thing though, I would recommend you do this over night as the tumeric does leave a temporary yellow stain but it the most effective remedy I know.
People in India have been using it for hundreds of years.
If you like , I can give more remedies:)
