Adopt a Daily Routine—good skin is a daily commitment and should be part of a morning and evening routine. Adults should cleanse their face twice daily and after perspiration, and get regular fresh air and exercise.
Know Fact from Fiction—there are many acne and acne scar myths. While tan skin may hide the redness of acne, it does not help clear it up and exposure to UV rays can cause skin cancer and premature aging. Another misconception is that stress causes acne. Stress and hormones may be a factor in acne occurrences, but there are no clinical studies that have been able to definitively prove this link.
