Acne Alert: The Sneaky Reasons You’re Breaking Out

All of a sudden you’ve got more zits and blackheads than your 15-year-old cousin—what the hell? These surprising habits might be to blame.

What good is a clean-shaven jaw if all that smoothness is ruined by a beard of blemishes?

Dirty razors can breed breakout-causing germs, so to keep your chin free of hair and of zits, put your razor in a cup of rubbing alcohol before you shower each day. Let it soak while you get cleaned up, then shave with your germ-free razor afterwards. Simple enough, right?
