  • Cleansers and Moisturizers: Also, as part of the measures to reduce the growth of acne while at the seaside, you could also rely on the use of moisturizers or cleansers depending on your skin type.

This is because asides the part where you encourage the growth of bacteria and spread germs across to your face via your hands, when you pop them, they will also spread further on the face and not help the healing process fast enough.
