I currently use ProActiv but want to start getting away from the use of chemicals to help keep my skin clear...

What are some natural ways to cleanse the skin...

I was going to look into getting tea tree oil, but was wondering is just using witch hazel would help with keeping my face clear of breakouts and black heads?

I've been taking garlic for it's antibiotic properties, and that seems to help clear up my skin too. I have used tea tree oil in the past, but not regularly. Witch hazel as an astrigent works really well I have heard, but not tried personally.

I use witch hazel as an astringent, then tea tree + my lotion + raw honey twice per day and it's helping way more than any commercial products else I've tried. Especially the raw honey!

I never thought to use raw honey like that, but I bet it's awesome!

I use witch hazel, tea tree, raw honey + sugar (as a scrub) and it's really good!
