User :   ok
Doctor :   Wash the skin twice a day using a mild soap, especially after exercise

Doctor :   Avoid putting any oily or greasy substances on the face. Oily and greasy substances make acne worse by blocking oil glands. If unavoidable, use water-based cover-up cosmetics, and wash them off at bedtime.
