Wash problem areas with a gentle cleanser. Twice a day, use
your hands to wash your face with a mild soap and warm water.
If you tend to develop acne around your hairline, shampoo your
hair every day.
Avoid certain products, such as facial scrubs, astringents and
masks, because they tend to irritate skin, which can worsen
acne. Excessive washing and scrubbing also can irritate skin.
And be gentle while shaving affected skin.
Try over-the-counter acne products to dry excess oil and
promote peeling. Look for products containing benzoyl peroxide
as the active ingredient. You might also try products containing
sulfur, resorcinol or salicylic acid. Nonprescription acne
medications may cause initial side effects — such as redness,
dryness and scaling — that often improve after the first month of
using them.
The Food and Drug Administration warns that some popular
nonprescription acne lotions, cleansers and other skin products
can cause a rare but serious reaction.
Avoid irritants. You may want to avoid oily or greasy cosmetics,
sunscreens, hairstyling products or acne concealers. Use
products labeled water-based or noncomedogenic, which means
they are less likely to cause acne.
Use an oil-free moisturizer with sunscreen. For some people,
the sun worsens acne. And some acne medications make you
more susceptible to the sun's rays. Check with your doctor to
see if your medication is one of these. If it is, stay out of the sun
as much as possible. Regularly use a nonoily (noncomedogenic)
moisturizer that includes a sunscreen.
Watch what touches your skin. Keep your hair clean and off your
face. Also avoid resting your hands or objects, such as telephone
receivers, on your face. Tight clothing or hats also can pose a
problem, especially if you're sweating. Sweat and oils can
contribute to acne.
Don't pick or squeeze blemishes. Doing so can cause infection
or scarring.
