Don't pop pimples
Don't pop pimples. It's tempting, but squeezing pimples can push infected material deeper into the skin, leading to more swelling and redness, and even scarring. Instead, dab on Bye Bye Blemish Drying Lotion before bedtime or Acne Control Gel for daytime.

Don´t touch your face
Don´t touch your face. Hands can spread oil and bacteria that cause pores to become inflamed and irritated. Wash hands before applying anything to your face, such as treatment creams or makeup.

Avoid leaning your face on objects
Avoid leaning your face on objects that collect sebum and skin residue, like a cell phone. Also, be sure to wash your pillowcase regularly, at least once a week.

Remove your makeup before you go to sleep
Remove your makeup before you go to sleep. When buying makeup, make sure you choose products that say "non–comedogenic" or "non–acnegenic" on the label. Throw away old makeup that smells or looks different from when you first bought it.

Try not to wear tight clothes
If you get acne on your body, try not to wear tight clothes that don´t allow skin to breathe. Remember that headbands and caps often trap dirt and oil, too.
