Use the Right Products

Fiction: Acne is a sign of poor hygiene. The only way to get rid of it is to use facial scrubs and astringents.

Fact: It is important to wash your face twice daily with a gentle cleanser. Excessive washing and scrubbing can irritate the skin. Facial scrubs, astringents, masks and skin abrasion may irritate the skin and cause or worsen acne.
