I can show you how to clean clogged pores. Use boiled water to steam over your face to wider them up, then clean them with lime juice or your cleanser. It should help. http://healacne101.com/

Most topical acne treatments (both over-the-counter and prescription) are a waste of money... I've suffered from acne for 8 years and tried it all so I can attest to this personally! The best treatments I've found are complete systems, not stand-alone creams or cleansers. There are some great reviews of these @ http://dermahealthreview.com/blog
