Some acne creams aren't like regular creams that add moisture. Sometimes they're more of a drying agent, which dries the skin because it's fighting the acne and removing all the dirt and oil.

Use gel based creams for the love of god. Never use anything that has any kind of oil in it, oil is what causes most kinds of acne. Hope thi

I'm not sure how much this may help, but you could try witch hazel. My skin isn't prone to pimples, but when I do breakout, I've found witch hazel helps eliminate the redness and swelling. Hope you find something that works for you! xx
