Acne is a skin condition. Sebaceous glands lie just under the skin's surface, and these glands produce oil to keep the skin smooth and supple. Due to many contributing factors such as hormonal changes and bacteria these glands can become blocked causing spots, pimples and sometimes cysts to occur.
Your daily routine can also have a massive impact on your skin's health. You need to be able to provide the correct nutrients for your skin to thrive. Sleep can also have a big impact. We sleep to let our bodies regenerate. Getting the correct amount of ‘shut eye’ can help our skin to rest and also reduce stress levels which in turn can rejuvenate our largest organ, our skin.
Toothpaste can dry up pimples. Place a small amount on the infected area only.
If your acne is moderate-severe, you should be seeking advice from a medical professional. Acne Clinic UK have a directory full of advanced acne specialists.
