When your skin is breaking out, you should not stop moisturizing and using SPF products on your skin. You might think that these products will clog your pores further but remember to continue with these steps on your skin as the lack of these essentials your skin can become even drier and irritated, resulting in aggravated acne.

Well, we don't have to remind you about this! We hope you are aware that squeezing your pimples can make them worse than ever. When you are breaking out, it is suggested that you keep your hands clean from dirt and your face cleaner. It is best to keep your hands away from you as much as you can!


Do not make any major changes to your daily skincare routine

In case, you have just started using a product that has resulted in acne on your face, then you obviously must stop using it right away! However, you should not get very experimental with your skincare products as it can further increase inflammation. It is better to stick with the products your skin is used to, so there are no bad surprises for you! You can try and be creative with products only when your acne gets better.
