No one likes having their face marred by acne. It certainly has an effect on your self-esteem, and can impact the way you act in social situations.

However, everyone deserves a chance to have a beautiful, acne-free complexion. That’s why our team here at Kraig Jenson, PC, Dermatology Center in Orem, Utah, put this article together, to give you some tips on how to prevent acne and keep your face looking great.

Always clean your face

This is a basic tip, but a lot of people don’t know how to properly clean their face. Contrary to popular belief, you want to avoid scrubbing your skin in a harsh manner with any coarse-textured cloths. Instead, wash gently and rinse well, then clean and dry your face with a clean towel. This opens your pores and allows the bacteria that cause acne to be flushed out.

Be careful with beauty products

From makeup to hair products, it’s easy to clog your pores and cause skin irritation. Whenever you use these products, you need to take extra care to wash and clean your face afterward. This will get rid of the particle that clog your pores and help keep your skin looking naturally refreshed and clear.

At the end of the day, preventing acne is all about taking a few extra minutes out of your day to effectively wash your face and do what’s needed to keep your face free of acne.
