Pimple or acne is something that everyone encounters at some or the other point of time, regardless of gender. Stress or anxiety is the major reason which leads to acne. They can appear at any part of your body but are more prominently found at face, neck, back, chest, shoulders and upper arms. Even though the average age for the occurrence of pimples is 13 to 17 years i.e. teenage years, it can happen to even adults. Adults in their late 40s can also suffer from severe pimples or acne. You might suffer from comedones (i.e. whiteheads and blackheads), nodules, papules, cysts or pustules types of pimples so one type of treatment does not work for everyone. However, this does not mean that there is no acne treatment available. With a proper acne treatment regime, you can easily get back your flawless skin.
Pimples or acne are formed due to overproduction of oil in the skin along with the build-up of dead skin cells that tend to clog the pores and the opening of hair follicles which then leads to bacterial infection. However, it can also be caused due to over oil production. Some of the other reasons for acne include stress, use of cosmetics, pollution, hormonal changes, unhealthy diet and some medications like corticosteroids.
