Acne responds best if treatment is begun early in the course of the disease. Treating your acne before it becomes severe may also help to reduce permanent scarring.

  1. Using ordinary hygiene on affected areas
  2. Wash your face once or twice daily with your usual soap or cleanser
  3. Do not scrub or use a loofa
  4. Friction makes acne worse
  5. Do not pick or squeeze, this may worsen scarring
