  • Make sure you drink enough water daily. Because lack of water in the body leads to dehydration which causes pimples.
  • Don’t go out in sun too often. Because sun rays cause the skin to produce more oil which leads to pimples.
  • Do not use too much makeup. Chemical products lead to pimples.
  • Wash your face at least 2 times a day with a mild face wash. Face washes help in keeping the dust, oil and dirt away from your face.
