If you have acne, then you should know some of the basic acne care tips. Caring for your skin the right way will keep acne at bay and result in clearer skin. These five tips are all easy and affordable options to prescription medications.

1. Keep your hands off your face at all times. Touching your face can introduce all kinds of bacteria and result in more outbreaks or even an infection if you arenít careful. Scarring is also caused by squeezing pimples. Scarring can have a big impact on your self-esteem and confidence, so keep your hands off your face unless necessary, and wash your hands before touching your face.

2. Wash your face regularly using soap designed for acne care. Over-washing does not reduce breakouts but can easily dry your skin out. For those suffering from moderate to severe acne it may be best to use a soap or wash prescribed by your dermatologist. This is especially true if you have been using over the counter treatments without success and want to see clearer skin quickly.

3. If you have long hair try wearing it back, away from your face. The same oil that causes acne can be in your hair in addition to pollution and dirt from the environment. If you do wear your hair down make sure to wash it beforehand.

4. Wash anything that touches your face on a regular basis, including pillowcases, blankets and glasses as part of your acne care routine.

5. If your acne care routine doesnít seem to be producing results talk to your doctor or dermatologist. They can provide you with tips for reducing acne as well as prescription medication to use on stubborn pimples. Thousands of people suffer from acne, so donít be embarrassed to ask for help.
