Acne will be a thing of the past.

What Causes Acne?

The words acne and pimples are normally used interchangeably when there’s a difference.

Acne is a skin condition. Pimple, on the other hand, is one of the side effects of acne symptoms. But there is a meeting point for both ‒ oily skin.

Both acne and pimples are a result of oily skin. Oily skin is an accumulation of oil sebum, dirt, and toxins leading to clogging of the skin pores. The clogged pores lead to pimples and breakouts.

We have three types of pimples:

  1. The tiny ones that are flat and blackish. They are the easiest to cleat using natural processes.
  2. Pimples with whiteheads. These occur at a deeper level and are normally due to collagen loss.
  3. Pimples with red-brown marks. These are a result of hormonal imbalance and are a little difficult to fight.
