Acne is a very common problem among adolescents as well as some adults. People who suffer from acne use various medicines — both oral and topical, to cure their problems. In addition to medicines they should also follow certain skin care tips to cure acne.

The following are some basic tips:

  1. Never use strong detergent soaps on your skin and avoid scrubbing. It will make the problem worse. People with acne must wash their skin twice — in the morning and in the evening. They should gently wash their skin with some mild cleanser, advised by the doctor.
  2. You should wash your face thoroughly after heavy exercise. Never use a rough scrubbing pad. Astringents should be used only when the skin is very oily. It should only be used on the oily spots and not on the entire skin. You should shampoo your hair regularly and if your hair is too oily,shampoo it daily.
  3. Never squeeze your pimples. People who have the habit of squeezing and pinching their pimples may develop scars on their faces.
  4. Men who have acne on their faces should be very careful while shaving so that they don’t hurt the acne affected skin. If they use safety razors,then they should use a sharp blade and should soften the beard by using soap and water, before applying shaving cream.
  5. Suntan or sunburn should be avoided as far as possible. It may make the skin dry temporarily but has other side effects.
  6. Women who suffer from acne must be very careful about the cosmetics they use. Cosmetics like foundation,moisturizers,blush etc. should be oil free. When people suffer from acne or are undergoing treatment for it,they should totally avoid the use of cosmetics or use as little as possible.
