As we try to keep our face “clean” and smooth, we don’t realise that these acne mistakes are damaging our faces instead. Pimples aren’t just for teens. You can still get acne well into your 30s, 40s, and beyond. There are many ways to treat acne, but in the journey to getting better skin, do avoid making these common acne mistakes.

Some common acne mistakes

Overdoing Washing or Scrubbing

Washing or scrubbing too much can irritate the skin. Be careful of some skincare products as some acne scrubs can aggravateinflammation, and some cleansers strip the face of its natural oils.

Squeezing Pimples

It may be tempting to pop that zit, but never. Squeezing pimples can cause long-term redness and a permanent depression in the skin. If you just cannot leave that pimple alone, try a warm (not hot) compress on it to encourage the pimple to heal faster.
