Avoiding face wash after workout session: People who have oily skin should make sure that they wash off their face after their workout session. The sweat gets accumulated around the pores and thus makes the skin more oily and acne prone. So try to have an oil free face cleanser that contains salicylic acid and glycerine.
Excess of face washing: Excessive washing of face is not a healthy practice. Though it helps your skin to look fresh and smooth, it tends to leave the pores open. Excessive washing of face leads to extracting the natural oil from the skin and the pores on the skin tend to produce excess oil themselves. Thus, it eventually leads to more acne and pimples on the face. On an average, one should wash his/her face twice a day. However, make sure you use an oil-free face wash or cleanser.
