We all have one of those days when we want to just aggressively make our face smoother just like those IG beauty videos we see and then we wonder WOW how they have such clean and beautiful and plain skin. Do they have a 10 step skincare routine, 1 super effective product? Do they maybe use face wash for pimples? Or is it just their genes?

We battle so many thoughts in our head to get that lovely, beautiful skin and for once not have the pimples and deal with the marks. Such a task, right? Just like anything else in life, there is a process and a journey and you have to follow that to slowly understand your skin and deal with those stubborn pimples. Ready? Let’s get started. 

Key to beat the pimples and not get beaten by them - 

Define pimples, please!

Before we get into how to treat pimples, it’s important to understand what exactly we are dealing with. Pimples develop when the sebaceous glands in your skin become clogged and infected, leading to swollen, red lesions filled with pus. Also known as spots or zits, pimples are a part of acne. 

Wait, acne is pimples too? 

Acne is a skin condition that has multiple symptoms such as pimples, marks, whiteheads, blackheads, small-red tender bumps (papules) amongst others. Acne and pimples hit you first during puberty when the hormone production in your body changes causing the sebaceous glands to become overactive. 

Adult acne is a thing 

Even though acne is most common amongst teenagers, it can also linger on till well into adulthood. Pimples most often develop on the face, back, chest, and shoulders. This is because there are many sebaceous glands in these areas of the skin. 

Hormonal roller coaster

Androgens are hormones that increase during puberty and cause the sebaceous glands to enlarge and make excess sebum. Hormonal changes during midlife, particularly in women, can lead to pimple breakouts too.

Medicinal backfire

Some pharmaceutical drugs may contribute to the development of acne as a side effect. Particularly medications that contain corticosteroids, Anti-convulsants, Androgenic steroids testosterone, or lithium.

Now let's move to the actionable and see some preliminary steps to start dealing with pimples. Shall we? 

There are plenty of home remedies that you can try for example; applying a honey-cinnamon mask to your face, applying green tea to your skin, and moisturizing your face with aloe vera. You can also try taking fish oil and zinc supplements. 

You could also try anti-acne face washes. . AcneStar has the power of 5 ingredients that ensure you get clearer, and acne-free skin, and also prevent future breakouts. The power of 5 ingredients in AcneStar includes glycolic acid and salicylic acid which makes the dead skin cells get washed away along with the properties of Aloe Vera, Calendula Chamomile flower, and Basil which ensure you get clear skin. 

The key to beating acne is regularity. It is recommended that you wash your face twice every day with AcneStar.
