Resist the temptation to touch your face. This is a very important step. You can transfer countless bacteria from your hands to your face just by simply touching it. Dirt can get trapped in your pores and then it can lead to a cluster of very unattractive pimples. If you have to touch your face, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water – or alternatively, use a face towel. Oil-absorbent paper also works well, but only use it one time, or you’ll transfer the oil and dirt back to your face, which won’t do anything to make your skin better.
