Whether or not you already have acne, it is important that you keep your face as clean as possible throughout the day. Doing this will help remove dead skin cells as well as any excess oils that are often responsible for acne. When cleaning your face, make sure that you’re using warm water and a facial cleanser. A lot of people like to use hot water but this can be damaging to your skin. Avoid scrubbing too harshly with the washcloth. Finally, make sure that you rinse well and dry off completely.
