Finally you wake up happy for the D day and rush to the bathroom to get through the day as quick as you can. But, oops you get the shocker of your life. That irritating pimple is back. The one red spot you dread the most has popped suddenly popped from nowhere and spoiled all your plans of looking hot for the day. I guess most of us can relate to it. A pimple always shows up at the worst possible time. This is the reason behind the ever growing market of over the counter pimple creams.
Nearly everyone in their life will have pimples or other facial blemishes from time to time. Especially during puberty, oil glands in the skin can become overactive, producing too much of an oil called sebum. Sebum, dead skin cells, and bacteria can clog the pores in your skin, causing them to become inflamed. We all know the types of pimples. Even your whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, nobules, cysts are dermatologically categoriesed as pimples. Approximately three-quarters of 11 to 30 year-olds will get acne at some time. But it can affect people of all ages. Experts believe the primary cause is a rise in androgen levels. However, it could be genetic as well. Acne can be affected by the menstrual cycle, anxiety and stress, hot and humid climates, oil based makeup, greasy hair and pimple squeezing.
Severe acne can sometimes lead to scarring of the skin. Dermatologists often provide special treatments not available over-the-counter that can cure infections and minimise potential scarring. In case, you don’t want to pop those pills, here are few natural home remedies for getting rid of pimples quick.
