Acne is the most common disease that 85% of the population suffer from at some point in their growing stages.A pimple is not something that happens due to uncared hygiene or anything. It has various reasons and sometimes simply happens and you should not feel embarrassed about it. It is curable if you treat it right.
For starters, tell me how do you feel when you wake up all prepared to rule the world and suddenly when you have a good look at yourself on the mirror you see that nasty big boy right on your face. Don't worry you're not the only one. Personally I've dealt with acne for a while and I know it reduces your confidence and self esteem.
Acne is often a common problem among individuals of any age, particularly among youngsters and females experiencing menopause.
Acne regularly happens at times of hormonal uneven changes in the body. Hormonal changes make organs create more oil than ordinary, which causes the skin pores to get stopped up and enable microscopic organisms to develop.
It is advisable to treat acne as soon as you notice as it can only deprecate if left unnoticed. White heads and Black heads can be easily treated at home using natural ingredients, a gentle cleanser and oil free products. It is cheap and not painful at all and can save you a lot of hospital bills and visits to the dermatologist. But, if this at- home treatment is ineffective, then one must immediately see the dermatologist, who would probably prescribe antibiotics to cure the infection, if any. There are many acne creams and face washes that claim to prevent and cure acne. But remember, everybody has a distinct skin type. Each and every product might not suit everybody. If there is any side effect or allergic reaction due to application of a cosmetic product, visit your skin specialist immediately. In a few appointments, you will see better result and reduction of acne, and attain the clear skin that you have been longing for.
