about everyone. It's the most widespread skin condition in the world.

Discover the most effective clear skin tips here.
Acne is a skin condition that causes spots. Most people affected by acne
are aged between 12 and 25. However, men and women in their 30s and 40s
can also suffer. There are many treatments available to help deal with
the condition.
5 the most important clear skin tips:
1. Clean Skin Gently
If you have acne, you should gently wash your face with a mild cleanser,
once in the morning and once in the evening, as well as after heavy
exercise. Wash your face from under the jaw to the hairline and be sure
to thoroughly rinse your skin.
Using strong soaps or rough scrub pads is not helpful and can actually
make the problem worse. Astringents are not recommended unless the skin
is very oily, and then they should be used only on oily spots.
2. Avoid Frequent Handling of the Skin
Avoid rubbing and touching skin lesions. Squeezing, pinching or picking
blemishes can lead to the development of scars or dark blotches.
3. Shave Carefully
Men who shave and who have acne should test both electric and safety
razors to see which is more comfortable. When using a safety razor, make
sure the blade is sharp and soften your beard thoroughly with soap and
water before applying shaving cream. Shave gently and only when necessary
to reduce the risk of nicking blemishes.
4. Avoid a Sunburn or Suntan
Many of the medicines used to cure a pimples can make you more prone to
sunburn. A sunburn that reddens the skin or suntan that darkens the skin
may make blemishes less visible and make the skin feel drier. However,
these benefits are only temporary, and there are known risks of excessive
sun exposure, such as more rapid skin aging and a risk of developing skin
cancer.
5. Choose Cosmetics Carefully
While undergoing acne treatment, you may need to change some of the
cosmetics you use. All cosmetics, such as foundation, blush, eye shadow,
moisturizers, and hair-care products should be oil free. Choose products
labeled noncomedogenic (meaning they don't promote the formation of
closed pores). In some people, however, even these products may make acne
worse.
There are a vast variety of clear skin tips or ways to clear up acne, but
not all are effective. Acne soaps and cleansers are the most important
products, but people ignore its importance. Although soaps and cleaners
are common, they eliminate root causes of acne breakouts.
