To help control acne, wash your skin once or twice a day. If you have mild acne, you can get an acne cream without a prescription. If this treatment hasn't helped after 3 months, see your doctor. You may need different medicines or prescription medicines.
You can help prevent acne from getting worse by using these tips.
Wash your face once or twice a day with warm water and a mild soap or acne wash. Use gentle, circling motions rather than scrubbing your face.
Always completely rinse your skin after you wash it, and gently pat it dry. Avoid rubbing your skin.
If your face feels dry after washing it, use a moisturizing lotion. Look for skin care products that say "noncomedogenic" on the label.
Shower as soon as you can after any activity that causes heavy sweating, especially sports.
Try not to scrub or pick at your pimples. This can make them worse and can cause scars.
