Acne can sometimes be a result of PCOS/PCOD or low water consumption. Our skin becomes dry during winters. Hence you must drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated and flush out the toxins.
Keep your face clean

As we talked about it before, you must moisturize your skin as much as you can. If you have oily skin then you must use a water-based moisturizer that will keep your skin hydrated. However, oily skin doesn’t mean that your skin is moisturized. Fruit packs and facial gel are also good for your skin.
Avoid removing too many dead skin cells
It is necessary to remove dead skin cells but don’t be rigorous about it as excessive exfoliation can remove the essential oils from your skin and make it dry.
Exercise and Rejuvenation
