Acne is a multi-factorial problem, and usually requires a multi-factorial approach. Meaning the best treatment is usually a series of treatments, including an appropriate facial wash, toner, treatment (e.g., benzoyl peroxide, tretinoin, etc.) and use of non-comedogenic moisturizers and sun-screens. Mild acne can often be controlled with just one step of such a regimen, but moderate or persistent acne often needs the full spectrum. Facial washes have different ingredients -- some are exfoliants (salicylic acid) and some have benzoyl peroxide in them as part of the treatment. Most acne I see has not been controlled by OTC products, so I often have to add an antibiotic (topical or oral) or a prescription treatment step.
