You will find a lot of information on social media on how to treat acne and hundreds of DIY treatments that sometimes are not accurate; hence we will discuss the worst mistakes you can make if you suffer from acne.
Squeeze your pimples
This can cause scarring, inflammation, and pigmentation if not done by a professional.
Try all the treatments you find on the internet
Make sure you are only following recommendations done by a professional and not everything you read online. In most cases, those treatments won’t adapt to your skin and may cause more damage.
Don’t remove your makeup or clean your face before sleeping
You accumulate dirt and bacteria that must be removed to prevent acne and skin infections during the day.
Apply products that are not suitable for your skin
Must products are design to treat specific concern and skin type, always read the label to check active ingredients and the recommended skin type; if you don’t do this, most likely your skin will only get worse, and you may end up having redness or allergic reactions.
