          My daughter needed a simple acne treatment. She didn't want several steps so we went with just the face wash. Within a few days her skin cleared. She still notices hormonal breakouts but they are less than they were before. We will continue adding products as we need!

                  Thank you for your inquiry. For your skin type we recommend using Ultra Calming Cleanser, Daily Microfoliant, Skin Refining Masque, Breakout Control and Active Moist. These products will address your breakouts without causing sensitivity or dryness.

                  A:

                  Thank you for your inquiry. Both of these cleansers contain salicylic acid. Foaming Wash from our teen line will be slightly more hydrating and have more botanicals to sooth and calm the skin. They are both foaming gel cleansers.

                I'm 19 and my canes not terribly bad, but it's still acne, and off and on I will get several breakouts. My skin is dry, so would this be ok to use? Is there a specific age range that this product is for?

                I've literally used almost every big name brand you can think of. Except this one. Lately my breakouts have gotten worse and worse. If I'm 19 do I use the teen or regular formula and how well does this work.

                  Hello Katie,
                  Foaming Wash will help with excess oil and breakouts. It is also important to exfoliate regularly and use a clay based masque to absorb excess oil and keep follicles clear. Pore Control Scrub should be used 3-5 times a week. Massage a pea size amount on skin and then let it sit for 5- 10 minutes and remove with water. It is important to be consistent with you home care when dealing with acne.
