hello prajkta
first of all your acne is not due to dust and night studying.
you can use Acnesol lotion for topical application.
Wash your face about twice each day. Do not wash it more often. Use a mild soap made especially for people with acne, and warm water. Do not scrub the skin. Experts advise the use of an OTC lotion which contains benzoyl peroxide.

Don't try to burst the pimples. You may push the infection further down, causing more blocking and worse swelling and redness. Popping pimples makes scarring more likely.

If you have to get rid of a pimple for some event, such as a wedding, or public speaking occasions, ask a specialist to treat it for you.

Try to refrain from touching your face with your hands. When you are on the phone try not to let the receiver touch your face - there may be sebum and skin residue on it.

Keep your hands clean, wash them regularly.

Always wash your hands before touching your face. This includes before applying lotions, creams or makeup.

Glasses should be cleaned regularly. They will collect sebum and skin residue.

You skin needs to breathe. If your acne is on your back, shoulders or chest try wearing loose clothing. Tight garments, such as headbands, caps and scarves should be avoided - if you have to wear them make sure they are cleaned regularly.

Don't go to sleep with makeup on. Only use makeup that is nonceomedogenic or nonacnegenic - you should be able to read this on the label. If you cannot find it, ask the shopkeeper or pharmacist. You should use makeup which does not have oil and does not clog up the pores.

Hair collects sebum and skin residue. Keep your hair clean and away from your face.

Too much sun can cause your skin to produce more sebum. Several acne medications make it more likely that you will be sunburned.

Hi ! to prevent acne without taking powerful long term medication you should avoid fatty meal and fast food, intake adequate amount of water at regular interval, consume large amount of green leafy vegetables and fruits, take atleast 7 hour sleep at night and do yoga and aerobics exercises regularly, avoid cosmetics as much as possible.

Hai,
Dust or night study are not a cause for acne.
Iwould like to advice you, apply aloe vera gel. Aloe vera has moisturing, anti- inflammatory and wound healing properties. It can be used to sooth the skin when having active acne lesions.
Apply Pimple cure cream.for permanant remedy.
