I think facial cleanser matters a great deal. The skin barrier (or acid mantle) works best to protect us against invaders like acne-causing bacteria if we don't break it down with overuse of detergents or high-pH soaps.

Since PSF discontinued their gentle castile cleanser, I've been at a loss. Lately, I've been using the cleanser from acne.org. It's pH neutral and uses light detergents (coca betaine) and my skin seems to do OK with it.

I wish all of you would go to PSF's facebook page and tell them to bring back their castile cleanser.
