According to About.com, the Obagi Clenziderm M.D. Daily Care Foaming Cleanser is a great product to use on acne-prone skin. This cleanser contains 2 percent salicylic acid, which eliminates the bacteria on the skin's surface and prevents new blemishes from forming. The Butyl Avocadate keeps oil production at bay.

Use salicylic acid products sparingly when beginning an acne cleansing regimen. Before this ingredient can be used daily, the skin needs several weeks to get used to it. Apply a light moisturizer that contains at least SPF 15 on skin after cleansing with salicylic acid products to reduce dryness and peeling.
