Wash it off. Twice.
We know how exhausting the idea of removing your makeup at the end of a long day (or night) can seem. But it's one of the easiest ways to make sure your acne clears up in a hurry. And you simply can't remove your makeup and clean your face in one step.
“In order for your cleansing step to work appropriately, it's important to get the makeup off with something that dissolves makeup easily, since soaps don't always work for that,” says Dr. Orentreich. This also means that you won't have to scrub so hard on your skin and irritate it.
