The Truth About Acne

Tips to control zits

If your acne is bothering you, it makes sense to talk to your doctor about a solution that may be right for you. In the meantime, you can also follow these simple tips to help keep your skin healthy and pimple-free.

KEEP IT CLEAN

Use a mild, soap-free, fragrance-free cleanser like Cetaphil® DERMACONTROL™ Oil Control Foam Wash and apply gently, morning and night. There's no need to wash more than twice a day and you don't have to scrub hard. Also, avoid alcohol-based cleansers, which can actually cause irritation and aggravate acne.

BE SMART ABOUT THE SUN

Too much sun is bad for your skin, and it's even worse when you suffer from breakouts. Try to stay out of direct sunlight as much as you can. When you do go out, use a non-clogging sunscreen (it might say "non-comedogenic" on the package) that's specifically formulated for your face, like Cetaphil® DERMACONTROL™ Oil Control Moisturizer SPF 30.

DON'T SQUEEZE

When you squeeze or pick at pimples, you can actually push the infection deeper into your skin and make matters worse. It can even cause scarring, so try to leave them alone.

THINK LONG TERM

Don't stop after you see short-term results. Acne is a commonly recurring condition, so it's important to continue your treatment. Epiduo® Gel works below the surface to prevent new breakouts from forming where you can't see them.
