How to Prevent Acne

General

 

Although you can’t prevent acne, there are steps you can take at home to keep acne from getting worse.

  • Gently wash and care for your skin every day. Avoid scrubbing too hard or washing too often.
  • Avoid heavy sweating if you think it causes your acne to get worse. Wash soon after activities that cause you to sweat.
  • Wash your hair often if your hair is oily. Try to keep your hair off of your face.
  • Avoid hair care products such as gels, mousses, cream rinses, and pomades that contain a lot of oil.
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Wear soft, cotton clothing or moleskin under sports equipment. Parts of equipment, such as chin straps, can rub your skin and make your acne worse.
  • Avoid exposure to oils and harsh chemicals, such as petroleum.
  • Protect your skin from too much sun.
