It’s easy to avoid skin problems like acne by taking simple precautions. Drink sufficient water everyday and keep your phone a little away from your face for starters, suggest experts.

Uma Singh, Medical Consultant for Ozone Organic Advantage, and Shikhee Agrawal, Head Trainer at The Body Shop, have shared a few tips:

* Have a glass of water every hour. For glowing and acne-free skin, drink eight to 10 glasses of water. This water therapy will help you remove toxins from your body and clear the body system, accelerating a healthy blood flow and boosting metabolism.

* Add healthy food like fresh fruits, green vegetables, nuts and omega-3 fatty acids to your diet. Avoid oily snacks and trans-fat food.

* Exercise regularly as it reduces stress, delivers more oxygen to the skin cells and keeps skin healthy and acne-free.

* Touching your face now and then invites infection. Avoid touching your breakouts. Follow a regular regime of washing your hands with anti-bacterial soap or hand wash before touching your face.

* Make sure that if you wear caps, headbands and scarves, they should be regularly washed.

* Wear sunscreen every time you go out in the sun.

* Shavers beware. Your high quality razors or blade or electric shaver should be thoroughly cleaned and maintained. Make sure to soften skin with lukewarm water, shower or soapy water.

* Do not poke your pimples. If you burst your pimple, the skin gets irritated or inflamed causing serious swelling, scarring and redness to the skin.

* Don’t use another person’s towel as using the same towel may carry infections, thus increasing the risk of acne, redness and skin inflammation.

* Keep your hair clean and dandruff-free to avoid occurrence of acne.
