Acne is a common skin condition that can make your skin look red, swollen, and irritated. It can show up on your forehead, cheeks, back, chest, and shoulders. When it doesn’t clear up over a few weeks or it gets worse after starting treatment, don’t panic. There are things you can do to clear up acne and help it stay away for good.

Skincare should be a part of your daily routine, from 10 years old onwards. So that the skin can regenerate and rejuvenate on its own, you have to have a healthy lifestyle too. You should drink plenty of water, exercise regularly and eat a balanced diet containing foods that are rich in antioxidants such as berries, green tea and nuts.

Give it some time
A common misconception about acne treatment is that switching products will lead to a quicker cure. However, using different products often leads to more breakouts and an increased chance of developing side effects.
