Ive read on so many websites that rubbing alcohol does not work for acne, but i am living proof that it can and does. My acne was horribly bad. Im 29 and still had the acne of a 15 year old. I got tired of the breakouts and the constant oiliness and so i started cleaning my face with face wash then i would scrub my face with alcohol then apply benzoyle peroxide. Now my face looks and feels alot better. So my vote? YES rubbing alcohol does work!
