How to prevent acne
It’s impossible to prevent acne because it is caused by the hormonal surge that occurs in puberty.

However, you can prevent it from getting worse by:

  • Not scratching, squeezing, popping or touching your pimples, as this can maintain the acne and cause scarring;
  • Gently cleaning the affected areas with mild soap twice a day;
  • Taking a shower every day and after any major exercise;
  • Washing your hair frequently if you have oily hair;
  • Avoiding sun exposure;
  • Shaving your face only if necessary so as to avoid irritating your skin;
  • Removing your makeup before you go to bed;
  • Avoiding the use of thick, oil-based makeup foundations or cosmetics;
  • Using non-comedogenic, water-based cosmetic products;
  • Avoiding tight-fitting clothing or sports equipment that could increase perspiration and irritation (a combination of sweat and sebum can contribute to acne outbreaks);
  • Avoiding prolonged contact between your skin and such items as the telephone, your hands, your hair (a haircut that leaves hair covering your face), etc.
