Acne control begins with taking good care of your skin. Many people mistakenly believe that washing your face excessively can prevent acne. However, overwashing can actually work against you because your skin can dry out, which increases the inflammation and aggravates the acne.
Instead, wash your face twice a day with a cleanser specific to your skin type, moisturize accordingly and treat any potential acne early with the correct product based on skin type and the type of acne you have.
