Question Acne science fair project

Hey! I'm in ninth grade and I want to do a science fair project on acne.

I would like to test how efficient different over-the-counter acne products are in fighting acne.

I wanted to use the bacteria and test the products directly on it, but it is too expensive.

So I thought I could use ping skin or some other kind of model and get it dirty with dirt, sweat, polluted (unclean) water, expose it to dirty air, maybe? But I don't know exactly what I should expose it too.(any ideas for this?)
Then, I thought I could have a few different products and see which ones are good and which ones arent. Any feedback/ideas?

This is what I need help with:
1st-Is the pigskin a good idea? or should I do something different?
2nd-What should I expose it too?

Thank you so much

These are very original and good ideas. However, the one thing that contributes most to acne, is oils on the face. You should try using some sort of oil and go from there.
PM me if you have a question.
