And once the deed is done, they go in search of a cure for the same. If you notice acne on your skin, wash the area multiple times with plain water and then with a mild soap or face wash. There are times when unconsciously you might run your hands across the acne, and as soon as you realize it, wash your hands well. You would not want to run the risk of spreading the germs.

Some of the most basic acne care rules for an individual are,

Rule 1 - Touch

Do not under any circumstances touch the affected region or the acne. If you do see a boil appear, let it be and wait for nature to take its course. If you are not able to bear looking at it, meet a dermatologist and make sure to follow the regime they recommend.
