Here are the top five tips for managing acne. Tip one, it's really important to make sure you clean your skin. If you're wearing a lot of products on your skin to actually hide your acne, they can promote the formation of blackheads. So it's a good idea to make sure you take all your makeup off. Tip two, clean your mobile phone regularly. Your mobile phone pressed against your cheek generates heat. Mobile phone surfaces also tend to carry a lot of bacteria. So heat from the phone, bacteria on the surface of the phone, can promote formation of spots on your lower face. So it's a good idea to keep handy wipes in your bag, that you can use to regularly clean the surface of your phone. Tip three, get enough sleep. It's really important to get a good eight hours sleep at night. The reason for this is, it's recognised inflammatory skin conditions like acne can be aggravated by stress. And not getting enough sleep may contribute to this. Tip four, don't pick your spots. Picking your spots will lead to scarring, and it can also result in pushing your acne inflammation deeper. So stay away from picking anything. Tip five, make sure you take your makeup off. It's really important to make sure your sin is properly cleansed, and that anything that can promote the formation of blackheads is wiped away from the surface of the skin, particularly at night time before you go to sleep.
