Pimples

What are Pimples?

A pimple is a small pustule or papule. Pimples are small skin lesions or inflammations of the skin. They are sebaceous glands (oil glands) which are infected with bacteria, swell up, and then fill up with pus. Pimples are also known as spots or zits.


Treatments

To get rid of pimples and keep them away, you need to fight the factors that lead to breakouts by removing excess oil, dirt and impurities from your complexion, dislodging debris from your pores, preventing dead skin cells from lingering on your face, and killing any bacteria present within your pores. Always check with your dermatologist.

All about Pimples

Pimples go by many different names, including zits, blemishes and breakouts. No matter what you choose to call the red, inflamed lumps that appear on your skin, pimples are an uncomfortable and often embarrassing problem.

Having pimples is also incredibly common. Almost 85 percent of all Americans will develop pimples at some time in their lives. Acne, the broad term for the skin condition that is associated with pimples, is the most common skin problem in the United States, affecting the lives of 40 to 50 million people every year.

The reasons for the prevalence of pimples lie in the factors that contribute to their appearance. Pimples form when debris becomes trapped within your pores, forming clogs. This debris may consist of excess oil or sebum produced by your sebaceous glands, dead skin cells, makeup residue and droplets of sweat.
