Q. How should I care for my skin to prevent Acne?
A. Washing your face more than two or three times per day may only promote acne by irritating the skin. It is best to use a mild cleanser or acne soap. There are several over the counter topical medications which may help control mild acne. If there is no improvement after a couple of months, more effective prescription medications are necessary. Finally, in choosing a facial moisturizer, it is important that it does not cause acne (noncomedogenic).
