We can also try some homeopathic medicines as they do not have any undesirable side effects. Another proactive acne medication is regular exercise like walking, jogging. This speeds up the blood circulation in our body and also gives us ample amounts of fresh air. But you should avoid excessive sunlight as it can cause harm to your skin.

You should never pierce or squeeze the pimple as the material inside may come out and spread and thus infect other areas of your skin.
