1.Make sure your face is clean

Wash your face at least twice a day. Most convenient times are in the morning and evening in order to get rid of dead cells, impurities and extra oil on the skin.

2.Don’t overdo on make-up

Avoid wearing make-up especially during a skin breakout to avoid irritating the skin further. If you must though, wear make-up sparingly.

Also check on the quality of make-up you are putting on your face.

3.Stop touching your face with your hands

Your hands have so many germs so touching your face all the time transfers those germs to your face and those germs and dirt can greatly irritate your skin and make it more prone to acne.

4.Exercise

Exercising also does wonders for your skin. Exercising can help to relieve stress which may contribute to stress.
