Acidophilus  has the ability to protect your digestive tract from parasites and fungus. Your body actually needs “friendly bacteria” to work and taking antibiotics can kill those good bacteria as well.

Electric Shavers and razors

Although electric shavers and razors provide quick and fast way to shave your body, but using multiple head razors (especially when you have large bumps and cysts) is a big no-no. Not only will it leave your skin damaged and dry but also severely irritated.

Skin picking

No matter how tempting and safe it may sound, but never ever touch (let alone popping and squeezing) acne affected area. You might be aggravating your skin condition by pushing that puss deep into your skin. If your blackheads sound very tempting to you to pop it out, make sure to get it done from a professional.
