Since then I've been using rubbing alcohol on my face 4-5 times a day. People warned me that my skin would end up looking like old leather -- but, after 35 years, my face is as soft and wrinkle-free as a baby's. I'll be using rubbing alcohol until the day I die.

Many people get great results from washing with Hibiclens twice a day. Google it and read the reviews on Makeupalley and acne.org. It is more for cystic acne than a few occassional pimples.

I would ask first off what is he eating ? if he is on cows milk get him off of it (this is a drs opinion ) and put him on almost milk or coconut milk . cows milk is very bad for teenage boys ...lots of natural snacks such as celery with hummus , carrot sticks , not alot of fruit . No fried foods especially french fries those are horrible for acne .Good luck .
