How to Avoid Acne

So it's your big day, the day has arrived, time to get in that suit and take your date to the prom. Wicked smokes of witchery! You look in the mirror, and you see a 2 by 2 centimeter pimple on your forehead. We must return back to time in order to make sure it never happened!

-Insert time traveling music here-

So now that we've reached the past, we must ensure this never happened! -Laughs and twirls mustache-
  1. Wash your face two times a day. Why? To clean out those evil bacterias, viruses and oils! Also, don't over-wash your face, if you do your body will overcompensate the missing oils.
  2. Change your pillow casing. Yep, sleeping is a factor too. Instead of giving up sleep altogether, change your pillow casing to avoid oil/dirt/organisms from building up on it.
  3. Basically, anything that touches your face should be cleaned. They build up oil/dirt/organisms that will attempt to ruin your day, nasty buggers eh? For example, a phone or a bluetooth.
  4. Wash your hands. That's right, "you nasty!" In all seriousness though, your hands go around all day touching door knobs, stair railings, toilet flushing handles, who knows what you touch.
  5. Calm down. When you're under stress it might lead to a break-out.
  6. Wash your hair! Oil in your hair may touch your skin (Highly likely) and clog up some of your pore's leading to deat-, acne.
  7. If you do get a pimple, don't touch it, don't pop it. You can, no, will spread the already clogged pore's oil all over your face. Unless you can microscopically remove every oil molecule then rub your greasy paws all over it, otherwise, don't touch it.
Following these basic tips I have suggested, you might avoid a breakout of acne. If you're a teenager, take a deep breath and accept the reality that you will eventually get a pimple or two.

Don't you want to just hit that smug oil-producing factory?!

Protip: The most important of all of the tips, is to not touch your gosh darn face.
