The most important and difficult thing to do is to keep your hands off your face. Though you might be tempted to itch or meddle with the affected area, keep reminding yourself to avoid touching the face. Otherwise, it spreads infection which will only make things worst.
Make sure to wash your face with cleanser every night before you go to bed.n important step is to change your pillow cover regularly (at least once in four days). The pillow cover, if not changed, accumulates dust, sweat and dirt, which indirectly affects your skin.
It is better to choose a pillow cover that is made out of natural fabric. Try and choose white pillow covers, so it doesn’t interact with the skin and start damaging it. Fabric softener is not a great option as it leaves behind cloggy residue. In case you have been affected by acne already, then don’t use a scrub. This makes your skin even more itchy.
Though several people might suggest using makeup to cover up the acne, it is better to avoid using any chemicals on your face.
