yes and amen. I recently started this method, and it's the best thing i've ever done or my skin. I've gone through lots of time and money trying to figure out why my face was breaking out like mad, and once I started just using a warm wet washcloth, all the painful acne stopped. Now I'm going to try out the ACV and different oils for moisturizing. It's cheap, easy, and IT WORKS. Our skin was never made to endure the torture of so many chemicals.
