					Effectively Prevent Acne

Acne is a skin disease that plagues a majority of the population at one time or another. Some people have it
every now and then, some see it during one phase of their life and it never returns, and yet some people have
to deal with it regularly. If you have trouble with acne, the advice offered here can help prevent painful and
embarrassing breakouts.

One of the most important things when it comes to dealing with acne is to keep your face clean. You should
wash your face twice a day, both morning and night. Use a face cleanser that is formulated for use on acne.
This has medication to help effectively clean out the pores, prevent new acne and treat current acne. After
washing your face, you can use a toner that is also made to use on acne. This will wipe away any residue of
cleaner or dirt left on your skin and will further treat the skin. Next, you need to moisturize your skin.
Moisturizing is important, as it keeps your skin hydrated and healthy. If you use a moisturizer with acne
medication, it will also help your acne problem. Now that your skin is clean, you may choose to use an acne
spot treatment on any areas that break out a lot or that currently have pimples. This is usually a higher
concentrate of the acne medication found in the cleansing items.

As important as it is to wash your face, it is equally important to not over wash your face. When you wash
your face too much, you can irritate it. Irritated skin is more likely to break out. By over washing it, you
are actually harming, rather than helping your skin.

Another important aspect of acne prevention is to keep your hands off of your face. Acne is caused when dirt
and bacteria get onto your face, get down into your pores and clog them. If you touch your face, you can
introduce this irritating matter onto your face and cause acne.

Along with keeping your hands off of your face, you also need to keep other things off of your face. You may
not realize how many things actually touch your face, but throughout the day, a lot of things have the
possibility to come into contact with your skin. One thing quite a few people use is a telephone or a cell
phone. You should clean your phone quite often. Also, if you wear glasses or sunglasses these should be
cleaned on a regular basis, too.

There is no overnight treatment for acne. You have to be consistent in your treatment in order to see any
improvements. Do not give up, give it some time and you should see all your hard work pay off.

If acne is a problem for you, at times it might seem like it is taking over your life. Fortunately, there are
some things that you can do to treat and prevent bothersome acne in your life. Use the advice offered in this
article and you can have clearer skin in no time.
