7 Ways to Minimize Acne

by Johnny Webber

1. Sleep on a clean pillowcase. You sweat a lot during the night, and all that gross stuff is going from your pillowcase to your face. If you don’t want to wash your pillowcase constantly, lay a new towel over your pillow every night.

2. Don’t touch your face. It’s a hard habit to break, but does help minimize acne. If you really need to touch your face, try doing it with a sleeve or napkin.

3. Drink plenty of water. Avoid sugar, alcohol, and other junky drinks.

4. Improve your diet. Healthy foods will treat your body better.

5. Change your make-up. Try going sans make-up for a while. You could be having a reaction.

6. Stop sleeping on your face. Rubbing your face on your pillow every night could be causing breakouts. 

7. See a dermatologist. If none of this stuff works, see a professional. Your problem could be more than the normal break out.
