What is Acne?
Acne is a common skin condition that affects most people at some point. It causes spots, oily skin, and sometimes skin that’s hot or painful to touch. Acne commonly develops on the face, chest, and back. Acne is commonly linked to a change in hormone levels which can happen in puberty and menstrual cycles, as well as to genetic factors.

Other than Zineryt solution for acne, how can I prevent acne?
Some ways that are recommended to prevent acne flare-ups include:
Not washing the affected area more than twice a day
Use a mild soap or cleanser and lukewarm water
Do not try to clean out blackheads or squeeze spots. This can make them worse and cause permanent scarring.
Avoid using too much make-up and cosmetics. Use water-based products that are described as non-comedogenic.
Completely remove make-up before going to bed.
If dry skin is a problem, use a fragrance-free water-based emollient.
Regular exercise cannot improve your acne, but it can boost your mood and improve your self-esteem. Shower as soon as possible once you finish exercising as sweat can irritate your acne.
Wash your hair regularly and try to avoid letting your hair fall across your face

If you want to apply make-up, use the medicine first, and let it dry. Zineryt solution comes to you in a special bottle with a special applicator pad protected by a cap which you should remove just before use and replace firmly after each use. The pad makes it easy to apply the solution to the whole of the affected area of the skin to be treated.
To use Zineryt solution for acne unscrew the protective cap, hold the bottle upside down, place the pad against the skin, and spread the solution over the whole of the affected area (including the surrounding skin).
The flow of solution can be increased by pressing the pad a little more firmly against the skin.
If you use the applicator properly, just the right quantity should be applied. But if you do put too much on, blot it off with some tissue, and make sure it does not run into the eyes, nose or mouth. If it does, wash well with plenty of water.
