There was a time not that long ago when bathing was a taboo. Even from a medical perspective, the idea of cleaning oneself was a suggestion that one was dirty, and a proper person would never be that. However, when a person doesn't practice proper hygiene, well, let’s just say acne is the least of their worries.
You have to cleanse your face regularly to keep it free of acne and clear. Never clean your face by scrubbing it abruptly as that can cause acne, instead using a mild soap gently clean it twice a day. Ladies, you also have to wash off your makeup at night or you will clog those pores while you sleep.
