Acne prevention is a bit of a misnomer if it implies
there's a cure. There isn't. Acne prevention
actually means preventing outbreaks, and there's
plenty you can do to avoid the recurring pimple.
Outbreak prevention covers a wide range: from the
day-to-day preventive measures you can take to the
acne products and remedies on the market.
Follow a gentle approach. Wash gently, and dab your
skin clean. You're trying to remove excess oil
produced by your skin pores; scrubbing hard will
actually force the oil and dead skin cells back into
the pores. You can use the assorted acne products
that clean the skin, but avoid those products that
claim to dry out your skin. Your skin needs moisture
and, without it, your pores just produce even more
Left my skin feeling much softer with a healthy glow, and existing spots
began healing immediately. My skin is now completely clear of acne and
has been for over a year and a half! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"

Avoid hand to face contact
It's so tempting to roll up your sleeves and take
the battle to the pimple, squeezing it into
submission. Trouble is, picking and squeezing zits
often leads to more problems: you spread the
infection over the surrounding area when the zit
bursts, and you can even wind up with scarring.
