You can help prevent acne from getting worse by the way you wash your face:
- Gently wash your face once or twice a day with warm water and a mild soap or acne wash.
- Use gentle, circling motions rather than scrubbing your face.
- Always completely rinse your skin after you wash it, and gently pat it dry. Avoid rubbing your skin.
- If your face feels dry after washing it, use a moisturizing lotion. Look for skin care products that say "noncomedogenic" on the label. Read more at http://healthlibrary.com/acne.htm
