Cleanse your face twice a day with a gentle cleanser to prevent acne. Use non-comedogenic products that do not clog pores and cause acne. Moisturize daily to keep your skin hydrated and less prone to acne.


Diet and Lifestyle

Maintain a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to reduce acne. Avoid foods high in sugar and dairy if you notice breakouts after consuming them, as they can worsen acne. Manage stress through relaxation techniques such as yoga and meditation, which can help in controlling acne.
