How does acne affect daily life?

Acne can be embarrassing and stressful. It can cause pain and irritation. Be sure to:
 
  • Clean skin gently. Use a mild cleanser in the morning, evening, and after heavy workouts. Scrubbing the skin does not stop acne. It can even make the problem worse.
  • Try not to touch your skin. People who squeeze, pinch, or pick their pimples can get scars or dark spots on their skin.
  • Shave carefully. Try electric and safety razors to see which works best. It helps to soften your beard with soap and water before putting on shaving cream. Shave lightly and only when you have to.
  • Stay out of the sun. Many acne medicines can make people more likely to sunburn. Being in the sun a lot can also make skin wrinkle and raise the risk of skin cancer.
  • Choose makeup carefully. All makeup should be oil free, but some people still get acne even if they use these products.
  • Shampoo your hair regularly. If your hair is oily, you may want to shampoo daily.
