WindyCityMom, sorry to hear about your skin! i hope it gets better! Isn't it lovely to have fine lines and zits at the same time?
I was having similar problems - horrid acne bumps all over my skin and pores that get clogged at the speed of light. If I miss even one night-time face washing I have pimples the next day. The most annoying pimples are the ones cropping up on my shoulders. I use body scrub to wash those away.
I use castille soap to wash my face, because it has essential oils and gentle cleansers that don't irritate my skin. Then witch hazel for the toner. I decided to invest in a Clairsonic Mia facial cleansing brush and it is SO worth it. Scrubs the funk out of my pores and keeps pimples at bay - but if I miss a day or two using it and just use my hands to watch my face the pimples start to come back. Ick! But, when I use it every day my skin glows and looks fantastic.
When I get desperate, I dab a little but of my Murad Sulfur acne stuff on a bad pimple, but I've been very sparing with that as it has a small amount of salicylic acid. I only use that in the case of icky painful pimples.
