What can I do if I have acne? 

page 32 what

The self-help techniques below may be useful:

Don’t wash affected areas of skin more than twice a day. Frequent washing can irritate the skin and make symptoms worse.

Wash the affected area with a mild soap or cleanser and lukewarm water. Very hot or cold water can make acne worse.

Don’t try to “clean out” blackheads or squeeze spots. This can make them worse and cause permanent scarring.

Avoid using too much make-up and cosmetics. Use water-based products that are described as non-comedogenic (this means the product is less likely to block the pores in your skin).

Completely remove make-up before going to bed.

If dry skin is a problem, use a fragrance-free, water-based emollient.

Regular exercise can’t improve your acne, but it can boost your mood and improve your self-esteem. Shower as soon as possible once you finish exercising, as sweat can irritate your acne.

Wash your hair regularly and try to avoid letting your hair fall across your face.
