things stop doing when you have acne

Blaming Yourself

Don’t blame yourself for something you didn’t do!!! You can’t cause your acne because the only important factor that really “helps” you to have acne is your genes. So, instead of blaming yourself, try to find an acne treatment that works for you.
2. Squeezing Pimples

As hard as it may be, don’t pick at your skin when you have acne. I know it’s very tempting to pop the zit and make it go away, but this is not the solution. Constant picking and forceful squeezing a pimple will definitely do more harm to your skin. So stop it!

Scrubbing Your Skin

Constantly using really abrasive exfoliating pads and too much cleansing is NOT a good idea. Vigorous scrubbing can irritate the pimples and aggravate inflammation. However, gentle scrubbing your skin is usually okay, as are soft facial brushes and washcloths.

Buying Into the Myths

There are a lot of myths when it comes to acne, that’s why you need to know the truth about acne if you want to keep it under control. So here are some acne facts to keep in mind:

You don’t have acne because you touched your face with your dirty hands.
Acne is not caused by sex or masturbation.
You don’t have acne because you didn’t wash your face.
It doesn’t exist a proven link between acne and diet, but Chocolate, pizza or French fries definitely don’t affect acne.
Acne can be treated, so don’t wait for it to go away on its own.
