Like a good many people I have been victim of acne vulgaris (what an appropriate name for such a vulgar disease) medical term for pimples.
My acne problem has made me aggravated, made me cry, and made me angry. Thousands of people each year are afflicted by an acne problem, and their acne problem makes recluses out of way too many teenagers and even adults.
Your acne problem is caused when your pores get clogged and fatty material made by sebaceous gland accumulates, and a "bump" appears under skin-or perhaps a whitehead or a blackhead (a comedone).
Blackheads are not caused by dirt but by discoloring effect of air on fatty material in clogged pore. If this substance becomes infected a pimple results.
That is medical explanation for pimples but what people really want to know is "How do I get RID of my acne problem!?"
As anyone can tell you worst thing to do is to push or "pop" a pimple. Because this will not only cause your acne problem to worsen, but can result in life long scars.
No matter what you see on TV and no matter what a friend tells you, DON'T pop that pimple.
I speak from personal experience, my acne problem was so bad I couldn't stand it so I popped pimples trying to be proactive in getting rid of them.
