    Take care of your body. Exercise and eat right. If your insides are healthy, then it will show on your face. Exercise helps to get rid of redness and acne by circulating the oxygen. Also when you sweat on your face, your pores are releasing the dirt and impurities inside of them. Drink a lot of water. If you're dehydrated, then it's going to show in your face. You should drink eight glasses a day. Don't skip the fruits and veggies either! What you get out of your skin depends on what you put into it

    Determine what your skin type is. There is oily, dry, combination, and normal types of skin. If your skin's oily, then your facial glands are producing more oil. If your face is dry, then you're not producing enough oil. By determining your skin type you can find products that are specially made for you.

    Use a toner right after you wash your face. What a toner does is it gets rid of the residue that some cleansers can leave behind, causing acne. A toner preps the skin for the moisturizer, so your skin won't break out from the moisture.

    Get the right foundation for you. The types of foundations that you put on your skin are critical. You don't want to put a two year old foundation on your face because it is most likely infested with bacteria, making your face break out. Your best bet is to buy mineral foundation, it's natural and won't clog your pores. If you don't like mineral foundation, then replace your foundation once every 6 months, to avoid bacteria causing acne.
