Let me share some tips I have learned over the years.
#1 Never wash your face with a washcloth
#2 Never use body bar soap on your face
#3 Wash your hands before you wash your face- and several times a day. Try to avoid touching your face so that you don't transfer bacteria from your hands to your face.
#4 ProActiv does not work long term- it might work when you start using it but as soon as you stop your face will get worse.
#5 Peanuts and dairy products will cause inflammation of your acne- try drinking organic milk to minimize consumption of additional hormones and limit yourself to one to two servings per day.
#6 Use a seperate towel to dry your face than you use to dry your body, only pat your face dry don't rub it
#7 Always use an oil free non comedogenic (spell check?) moisturizer with sun screen- apply it after you've washed your face and your face is completely dry. Make sure your hands are clean when you apply it.
#8 Keep your pillow cases clean, we put lots of conditioners and styling products in our hair that get into our pillow cases as we sleep then it rubs on our faces
