    Honey is mildly antibacterial and is very soothing, so it might work. When I had bad breakouts I used to use it and it seemed to help.

    Yogurt is also good, and is not drying – use the kind with live cultures (if you can’t find any so marked, use plain, unflavored, unsweetened yogurt).

    There’s lots of things to use. I use rubbing alcohol on my face everyday as an astringent. I have also used toothpaste on my face to dry up pimples, use any kind of toothpaste but not the gel type. Good luck, hopefully you will find something that will work for you.

    I used Tetracyclin, Proactive, Retina A and had many expensive facials with less than good results.
    This has worked for me and many many other happy people. Go to pharm.,Drug store, or Walmart,
    buy “PURPOSE” bar of soap – Blue box – Made by Johnson & Johnson – wash your face with this
    2-3x’s per day. Also pick up a LOW strength Benzoyl-peroxide cream, apply the cream by dabbing
    to the individual blemishes…. DONT rub it in works using a oxidation/reduction reaction…DONT over
    use this or put anywhere else on your face.. It will cause drying and make you look worse. Also, If need
    which probably will for moisture ASK FOR “NUTRADERM lotion” – the orginal not the new stuff, this works
    great and wont clog pores or leave a residue on your skin…Additonal TIPS: acne, pimples, etc are
    frequently cause by a bacteria or hormone issues…. DONT PICK POP POKE (your hands are the
    dirtiest part of your body) and will cause: infections, spreading of germs, more breakouts and scarring
    DONT EVER listen to people online who tell you to scrub your sensative skin or use harsh chemicals
    such as: Lemon juice, vinagar, alcohol, etc… DONT EVER use that APRICOT CRAP!!! DONT USE
    PROACTIVE- this is expensive and harsh it may kill the bacteria cause also Benzoyl based wash but
    will irritate skin and cause bleaching of face and neck…. Other similar treatments may work.. also
    things such as Accutane but have serious side effects…. THIS WORKS FAST AND CHEAP!!! I no
    longer get expensive facials, take oral antibiotics, or even NEED makeup… I am very happy – Have
    very good skin… and have many many other happy friends… THANKS again to my WONDERFUL
