Choosing A Pimple Cream
No prizes for guessing what they are…Yes, they are called pimples or acne.
In medical terms, pimples are formed when the pores on the skin becomes clogged or infected. This usually happens when the sebaceous glands produce too much sebum.
Different people have different theories on how pimples are formed. According to some, pimples appear because they eat too much fried food or foods that are ‘heaty’ (think chocolates). The pimples are an indication that the body’s yin-yang balance is not maintained. Yet, to others, pimples form because of stress from studies or work or relationships. Whatever the reason for the cause of your pimple, there’s always a cure for them. If your pimples are not serious enough to cause you sleepless nights or a jaw-dropping response because of your pock-marked face, then forget about expensive laser treatments. Instead, stick with the tried and tested pimple cream.
As an image consultant who advises others on skincare issues, I made it a point to research some of the popular pimple cream brands in the market. Some brands are terribly effective as they are not only drying for the skin but also causes it to flake. Others cause allergies because they contain ingredients that are caustic. And yet others only temporarily cause the pimples to subside and not exterminate them completely. All three scenarios are definitely not something we want.
I always believe a good pimple cream must serve four basic aims.
We all deserve to face the future with confidence. And perhaps it shall all start with a good and effective pimple cream.
