True/false: showering twice a day is probably best for someone who is acne prone or has lots of acne ?

    False. Stripping all the oil from the skin by washing actually prompts it to make more oil.

    Body acne is common in teens. Here's what our son did to make his all but disappear:

    Clean sheets at least once a week, washed in hot water. More frequent change is better. If this is more than the laundry-doer at your house can handle, wash 'em yourself.

    Clean towels, same.

    Shower once a day, soaping affected area gently but thoroughly with Neutrogena soap formulated for acne.

    A back brush with fairly soft bristles to help reach the middle. No hard scrubbing!

    Second quick shower soon after any serious sweat-producing activity, using any antibacterial soap. If you didn't get sweaty, don't shower again.

    Scrupulously clean shirts. No second wearings, and change it if you sweated in it. If the shirt can take it, hot or at least warm water laundering. Again, wash 'em yourself.

    If you’ve got long hair, keep it very clean, pulled back so it covers only a part of the back when not in public. In heat, a braid. Overnight, a braid.

    Short periods of exposure to sun, not enough to show a tan line. (15 minutes a couple times a week helped a lot.)

    WAY FALSE. That's not how acne works. Many people get acne because they are constantly stripping away their natural oil with oil free crap, causing your skin to create MORE oil and become MORE clogged. All you're doing is making things worse by constantly washing your face.

    False. All that soap and agitation of their skin could actually make their acne worse. They should make an appointment with a dermatologist.

    True. Especially if that person is greasy
