How to create a great acne fighting cocktail

I do like this acne treatment gel because of it's balance of acne fighting acids and redness calming licorice and chamomile however i can't use it straight out of the bottle. It is very drying and irritating on it's own. I have combination/sinsitive skin with very small pores. I get occasional breakouts, blind pimples are my enemy and my skin scars easily. Years ago I discovered Bio-Oil at my local drug store and about 3 years ago I began tinkering with various skin care products in my bathroom to see how I could tailor a solution for my combination + aging skin. I'm 37 now and am constantly complimented on my complexion. I'll keep this review just for how to battle annoying acne breakouts: Use equal parts of Murad Acne Gel, Bio-Oil and ProActive's repairing treatment (the smaller white bottle). Mix just enough of each to treat your face,( i do this in my hand) and apply to your face avoiding the eyes of course. I use enough to leave my face feeling damp. I only use this combination when I see a pimple or two pop up and I only do it at night. By the following morning, the difference is amazing. I also add Bio Oil to my BB Cream or my favorite SPF 30 moisturizer if just going to the gym and you'll find in time that just adding this little bit here and there will pay off huge in your skins appearance.

This product will irritate and dry your skin. It dries it out and causes even more issues. Perhaps if you experience cystic acne this product will be more effective, but if you have an occasional breakout or are normal or sensitive skin type, do not use this. I also would not recommend the Murad cleanser, moisturizer, or spot treatment because they are all drying (yes, even the "moisturizer", which is essentially water). These products, including the exfoliating acne treatment, will strip your skin and disrupt the PH balance, causing more acne and skin issues such as dryness, irritation and even more oiliness.
