These foaming cleansers or chemically laided creams will not strip natural oil from from your skin, but also kills the good bacteria which protects your skin from erupting acne.
Contrary to many commercial skin products, organic and natural home made products really help in clearing the acne from the root and gradual use may also help to eliminate it completely. Unlike those chemical creams, if you stop using these natural products after it clears away your acne, you are not affected by it again. That’s the power of nature.
