Wash your face at least thrice a day with a proper face wash that’s suited for your skin. Even when you are trying out our home remedies, it’s important to pick those which will suit your skin. Never leave the house without some sunscreen on your face (you can find some non-oily ones at the chemist). The last and the most important thing to remember is always, always, drink loads of water.
