Acne is a skin problem caused when oil and dead skin clog pores, causes white heads, blackheads, and pimples. The first symptoms are small, red spots that later turn into pimples containing degraded fatty acids.
What can make acne worse?
Working in a damp environment with oil, grease and other chemicals.
Squeezing or picking at the pimples.
Certain medicines and chemicals.
What can be done at home?
Wash your face twice a day with a mild cleanser. Make sure you wash your skin whenever it becomes sweaty. Do not scrub your face as this will only make your acne worse.
Avoid hairstyles in which the hair is constantly touching your face. Shampoo your hair regularly.
Do not squeeze or pick at the pimples. This makes them worse and may cause scarring.
Avoid exposing your skin to too much cold, heat and sunlight.
Use a waterbased moisturizer
If you notice that spots increase after you eat certain things, it makes sense to avoid them.
Choose a sensible, varied diet, drink lots of water and exercise regularly.
Mild acne can be treated with overthecounter medications. Ask your pharmacist for advice on products.
