Pimples can be a brutal reminder of our skin woes. These come through as a nightmare and do not go away quickly.
While conventional treatments might help you eliminate the pesky pimples, it is crucial to understand the root cause of the problem. We have sebaceous glands in the skin that generally provide moisture and hydration, but when our body is subjected to stress and hormonal changes, the glands can get clogged. The bacteria in this process causes inflammation in the skin, leading to acne formation.
While acne is a skin condition, pimples come as a side effect. Oily skin is the most affected when it comes to acne and pimples as the sebum collected in the pores causes the skin to breakout.
So how do you free yourself of pesky pimples and inflammation?
There are many remedies recommended for this, but only a handful are scientifically proven to help.
We are here to help you out with a few remedies to get rid of the stubborn pimples.
