Keep your skin healthy and clean. Make sure you do not leave make-up products on your skin for too long as they may contribute to clogging of the pores, which will cause more pimples and blackheads, so do not ever sleep with make-up on. Keep your hair back from your face, as hair can be oily, and leave an oily residue on the forehead.

Keep your towels and pillows washed and clean, they are absorbent and can absorb the oil from your hair and distribute it to your face.

Never pick the pimples – that will transfer dirt from fingernails, and make things worse, also will more than likely leave scars.

Eat as healthily as you can. This helps cleanse from the inside. Cut down on fatty and greasy foods. Eat foods rich in fiber.

Make a high percentage of your diet raw fruit and vegetables, and include food rich in vitamins A, B & D.

Maintaining a diet rich in beta-carotene and zinc will not only help in the prevention of acne, but will be beneficial in healing any scarring acne has caused.
