There are probably many people who have suffered from acne during their teenage years and there are certainly many who also suffer from it in adulthood. Acne is a chronic skin disease that mainly affects boys and girls in the puberty period, i.e. from the age of 12/13 years up to 18/22 years in the most severe cases. Depending on the individual, this disease may appear earlier and then disappear completely or, on the contrary, it may not appear at all during puberty and then appear in adulthood.
But what does acne consist of? Acne is manifested by the appearance, very often on the skin of the face, of so-called pimples.
WHAT ARE THEY?
How to recognise skin pimples. They are
caused by inflammation of the follicles and appear as bumps, which are red in colour and swollen. These are called closed comedones or deep whiteheads, otherwise known as pimples under the skin. In other cases, pimples appear as a kind of relief at the top of which is a yellow spot containing a purulent inflammation called pus.
There are many causes of pimples. There
are many causes that can lead to the formation of these annoying skin blemishes, pimples, which derive from different factors. These are listed below:
- hormonal imbalances;
- excessive sebum production;
- use of cosmetics containing comedogenic substances;
- poor skin cleansing by not purifying it of impurities;
- Unhealthy lifestyle: bad diet, alcohol, smoking and bad habits
First cause of pimples appearing in adolescence and adulthood
First and foremost, pimples appear on the skin due to hormonal issues: this occurs mostly in adolescence, during the period before the menstrual cycle or during its course and, finally, during particular periods of life such as pregnancy.
Excessive sebum production causes pimples
Secondly, pimples appear on the skin due to excessive sebum production by the sebaceous glands, perhaps because one is naturally predisposed. Having oily skin, in fact, is the main factor that leads to the formation of pimples on the skin.
COSMETICS WITH COMEDOGENS
Check the INCI of your cosmetics It is also
very common for pimples to appear due to the use of cosmetics containing comedogenic substances, i.e. containing substances that contribute to the occlusion of pores. Using creams and, in general, cosmetics containing moisturising substances is also a contributing factor to the formation of pimples. They only cause the skin cells to swell, clogging the pores and thus preventing sebum from escaping to the surface.
POOR SKIN CLEANSING
Cleanse your skin of all impurities Poor skin cleansing causes a build-up of impurities and debris inside the pores, which become clogged, resulting in inflammation of the follicle. This is why it is so important to remove make-up from your face at night, before going to sleep, allowing your skin to breathe.
An unhealthy lifestyle increases the chances of having pimples on the face and body
Other factors that encourage the appearance of such skin imperfections can be stressful conditions that are somatised in that way, the consumption of alcoholic beverages, smoking both active and passive, an unhealthy diet and finally excessive
WHERE THEY ARISE
Which areas of the skin are most affected by the appearance of pimples? The appearance of
the infamous pimples can affect every inch of skin but, in most cases, they appear more frequently in certain particular areas, such as the T..
This is the area of the
face most affected by the formation of pimples Among the
latter is the face with the famous T-zone, which includes the chin, nose and forehead, i.e. parts of the body where the concentration of sebum production is high.
Back, chest, scalp and armpits
Pimples can also form in other areas of the body besides the face
Other areas of the body that can be affected by the appearance of pimples are the back, neck, shoulders, chest, armpits, groin area and even the scalp is not immune to this annoying blemish.
Pimples and remedies: how to get rid of pimples
With the emergence of the Internet, information now travels at lightning speed, and it is possible to find really anything: in the case of pimples, there are many natural remedies, the so-called grandmother’s remedies, but also medical cures to be used and implemented to prevent the appearance of pimples.
First tip: consult a dermatologist
Before proceeding with the illustration of the best methods to use, it must be emphasised that the right choice is always to consult an expert and, in this case, a dermatologist.
SECOND PIECE OF ADVICE
To get rid of pimples, you have to know how to choose between pharmacological cures vs. natural remedies With
regard to the remedies to be used in order to get rid of pimples, a first distinction must be made between natural cures and real cures using drugs.
I advise you to intervene with the first manifestation of acne As for
drug treatments, they are considered when acne occurs in adolescence and, therefore, it is assumed that the causes have to do with hormones. In that case, topical, or systemic, treatment with antibiotics and retinoids is recommended, and considered sufficient, as it is assumed that the problem goes away with growth.
When to use them to get rid of pimples
As for natural remedies, they are not recommended in cases where acne occurs aggressively, while they are excellent in conditions of oily skin or when the appearance of blemishes occurs infrequently.
USE THE MASK EVEN IF IT IS NOT CARNIVAL
Green clay masks for oily skin and white clay masks for combination skin
The most frequently used natural remedy for eliminating pimples from the skin
In order to eliminate pimples, a popular natural remedy is to apply a green clay mask to the skin of the face, which is very suitable for oily skin, and a white clay mask, which is suitable for combination skin.
Essential oils and green tea mixed with cream, among the best known and most popular natural remedies Essential oils and green tea are
also excellent to apply to the affected area, but should never be used purely but mixed with cream or other types of oil. If you want to get rid of pimples, zinc oxide cream is very useful. It helps to soothe the skin, reduce inflammation and also to reduce the red spots that remain after the pimple has appeared and healed.
