• Do not binge on oily foods. Maintain a proper diet. Include lots of fruits and green vegetables in your diet.

• Drink lots and lots of water.

• Do not keep touching your face as you might transmit all kinds of germs and bacteria from all the books, doors, mobile phones etc, that you have touched during the day.

• Never squeeze or pick a pimple as it increases your chance of getting scars.
