- Keep Your Hands Away from Your Skin
Although it is against your instincts, you must learn to keep your hands away from pimples and other acne lesions. Squeezing pimples is NOT an acne treatment. It is a bad idea, unless performed under sterile conditions by a doctor.
- Stay out of the Sun
Yes, a suntan would look lovely on you, but you should learn to do without for a while. The risks of sun exposure are not acceptable when you realize that the sun does not cure acne. UV rays simply dry the outer layers of your skin and cause it to peel away. However, once you are away from the sun, acne will return. Prolonged exposure will also make you a certain candidate for skin cancer.
