What helps with body acne especially on back and shoulders ? I’ve tried the neutrogena body wash and African black soap and it’s still so bad #skincare #bacne #acne #bodyacne

my acne has always been a huge insecurity of mine, until recently I started forcing myself to see it as normal rather than a disease. I’ve tried many products but they never have really cleared me up. I’ve heard that raw African black soap is really good for acne (which I have quite a bit of) my skin used to be a lot worse years back but never to the point of cystic acne, as of right now it’s very controlled but I break out easily. Any advice on what brand has the best raw black soap or any good cleansers to clear up acne? I don’t have much acne but I do have the little tiny bumps that won’t go away and a few acne bumps here and there.

Does anyone know anything about skin care? I need suggestions for a routine to stick to. Nothing works for me (sadly including African black soap)and I’m beginning to run out of hope for my skin. I have combination, but more oily skin. I don’t get big breakouts (besides the occasional “under the skin” pimples) but I get EXTREMELY bad blackheads which turn into bad acne. I also pop them sometimes which I know is bad. I don’t have a big budget to keep buying things only for them not to work. I just need a routine of products I know will work. I’ll take any suggestions because I have never had a bad reaction to anything.
