There are many reasons people have acne or harsh breakouts. A lot of the time, acne is worsened by using the wrong types of cleansing materials on our faces and bodies. Using the wrong types of cleansers can irritate our skin, causing breakouts to happen. I used to have pretty bad breakouts and I hated it. Then I was informed I needed to do three things to help keep my skin/face from breaking out. I had to cleanse my face, apply an acne treatment, and then moisturize every night. But that was only half of it, I had to find the right products to do this. I used to use an Aveeno type of facial cleanser on my skin, but I didn't like it because I felt like my face wasn't clean after using it. I soon switched to the basis skin bar. It looks like a bar of soap, but it's not. Soap usually doesn't contain ingredients, but skin bars, like basis, contain ingredients to help cleanse the skin and fight breakouts. Some of the ingredients in the basis bar soap are almond oil, aloe vera extract, beeswax, etc. I use this bar of soap every morning and night and it really helps out. The skin bar should be found in the acne isle of whatever store you go to. It comes in a white box with a green line going across it, a very simple and minimal design. If you're having issues with whatever cleanser you're using, I suggest you try the basis skin bar and see if it works for you.
