^I massage my face with Almond Oil in the morning and wash it off in the shower with a washcloth. Yes, soap or a normal cleanser doesn't remove it completely. I should mention that I've started taking Zinc orally as well shortly after I started desitin. It's supposed to boost immunity and fight off acne causing bacteria from the inside. You can read some rave reviews here in Makeupalley. I haven't had a single cystic acne kind of a zit in 2 months now.

Another tip. After washing my face I dab sea salt + water solution all over my face and let it dry for 30 minutes and wash it off. Another makeupalley find. Supposed to dry up any existing zits.

I also read that Mario Badescu acne products have Zinc in them, I'm not sure what the concentration is, but I'm sure it helps a lot.
