It sounds weird but I do it and I don't ever have pimples or acne, every night be fore bed, make some really clumpy oat meal, and put it on your face, cover your face with a hot, damp rag for about 10-15 min. Then wash off with soap or acne cream. After that put a very small amount of lotion on ur face. It's sounds crazy but I do it and it works :) and it makes ur skin soft.
store bought solutions often do not work, at least this is the case with me. What I do is wash my face with saltwater before I go to bed. Just fill a spraybottle wit warm water and add some seasalt, spray your face and pat dry. It works wonders.
