ok, acne sucks and i know what your going through. Mine was so bad my face hurt! For me it was not so much a food or washing thing, though i must sugest the use of Ivory soap, the plain one. You can wash your face 4 times a day without dryness. If dryness is not a problem and you have really oily skin try the green Irish spring (black box) very tough on dirt, any way acne for me was in the blood, and i mean this, my acne was linked to a blood compond. just go to a skin doc, have a blood test and then when he saw well try this and this and this, tell him you want to save 4 years of $$$ and a face of zits so just give you the accutain from the start. It is the only thing that will really work!
