Wash face w gentle cleanser 2x/day & use oil free products.
No oily hair or heavy foundations. Exfoliate occasionally. Try not to pop pimples. Avoid touching face (cradling chin in hands). Remove makeup before bed. Shower after strenuous exercise. Consider otc products (salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide). If > mild acne see dermatology (discuss meds, comedone extractor, pore strips, etc.).
