Why do I get pimples?

Monday, November 25, 2013

In the simplest of terms, the cause of pimples is blocked pores.  There are a number of reasons your pores could be blocked:

-          Too much oil on the skin

-          Hormones

-          Dead skin cells sitting on the surface of the skin

-          Makeup clogging pores

-          Bacteria and free radicals

Having too much oil on the skin could be due to hormones or simply if you have an oily or combination skin type.

Your skin is constantly shedding dead skin cells and producing new skin cells which push up to form the new outer layer.  However if you do not cleanse and exfoliate regularly to remove dead skin cells, they could sit on the surface and block pores.

Heavy or long lasting makeup can potentially clog your pores.  By sitting on the surface of the skin, it can act like film, blocking your pores.  The best prevention is to: wear no foundation at all, wear a lighter foundation or mineral makeup, but most importantly cleanse twice a day to ensure your skin is clean and clear at the end of the day and before applying makeup.

Bacteria and free radicals can also clog your pores to form a pimple.  Bacteria naturally exists on your skin, but there are bad bacteria which can cause inflammation and form pimples.  Free radicals come from the environment (i.e. air pollution, u.v rays).

The best and main prevention for a pimple breakout is keeping your skin clean through cleansing twice a day, exfoliating twice a week, applying a mask once a week and using a quality oil free moisturiser.

While on holidays recently I ran out of cleanser about 3 days before coming home. Oh well that's OK I'll use the body lotion provided at our 5 star hotel, it's good quality. What a mistake.

You'd think a very mature skin like mine could take anything but by the first night the lumps had started coming up on my forehead. The next morning a few developing pimples were near my nose. It took a week after our return to restore my face to a clear status again.

For most ladies this probably won't happen but if you suffer from Rosacea like me, it doesn't take much to start a breakout.

Rosacea skins tend to have more layers of dead skin cells so must be routinely cleansed with a suitable face cleanser. Pores just have to be kept clear.

The hotel body lotion was too drying, full of chemicals and immediately blocked the pores. Bingo inflammation began.

The best cleansing solution for Rosacea and acne prone skins is a lactic acid and glycolic acid face wash. This combination is gentle but effective in removing dead skin cells thus working as a preventative of lumps, bumps, pimples and cyst type eruptions.

When we developed Daily Face Wash last year it was very exciting for myself and the hundreds of girls who started using it straight away. Feedback has been excellent and sales tell the story.

 Going on holidays - take plenty of your own skin care. You should come back glowing not with zits!
