  • Twice each day (and additionally after sweating), use a gentle cleanser on your face.
  • Don't use harsh soaps or rough scrubbing pads.
  • Wash face from the hairline to below the jaw, and remember to wash your hair regularly and frequently if hair is oily.
  • Avoid picking at your skin or acne lesions.
  • Protect skin against sunburn.
  • Avoid rubbing the skin with items such as backpacks.
  • Talk to your doctor about treatment options if you struggle with acne.
