    OK, challenge. :D

    I am almost 40, but still have a tendency toward acne and blackheads. I'm looking for a basic soap recipe with goats milk that would be good for acne plus exfoliating properties. I cannot use Witch Hazel, Tee Tree oil or Aloe Vera as I'm allergic to all 3.

    So, does anyone have a recipe I can try to make to help my skin? I like lots of bubbles if that helps. LOL I don't want it to be too drying as that just makes things worse too.

    Any ideas or recipes I can use or tweak would be greatly appreciated!

    Have you tried adding Dea Sea mud to your soap. It is supposed to be good for acne prone skin. Neem seed oil is also good for the skin, but many people hate its smell.

    Thank you for the tips. Any oils I should avoid?

    Not a soap but a suggestion for a mask. After you get out of the shower, when your skin is warm and pores are open, smear fresh egg white on your face. Let is dry, then add another layer. After that dries, splash with warm water to rinse. The cool water to close the pores. This should help remove black heads.
