Are you faithfully treating your acne but still seeing new breakouts? Your skincare routine could be to blame. Here you’ll find 10 skincare habits that can worsen acne and dermatologists’ tips to help you change those habits.
10 habits to stop:
1. Try a new acne treatment every week or so.
This approach can irritate your skin, which can cause breakouts.
What to do instead: Give an acne treatment time to work. You want to use a product for 6 to 8 weeks. It takes that long to see some improvement. If you don’t see any improvement by then, you can try another product. Complete clearing generally takes 3 to 4 months.
