Best Answer

You can use it if your skin is non sensitive but not a lot it may cause burning or irritation. It can be used for making pimples dry out and basically going away. But you do have to MOISTURIZE because alcohol does dry out your skin.

Rubbing alcohol will remove your face's natural protective layer and may burn or irritate your skin. If you have sensitive skin then do not use rubbing alcohol. Use a sensitive skin product.
