Pimples.. who is immune to them? Nobody. We all have them, but few seek to know what they are, why they appear and how to prevent them from happening. During my pre-adolescence, my skin became a minefield formed by acne. Since then, I haven't given up on skin care, because it was simple habits that eliminated the pimples from mine. Our skin is full of sebaceous glands that produce an oily substance that has the function of lubricating our skin, this substance is normally eliminated by the pores present in our skin. When our pores are clogged or when there is an increase in the production of the oily substance by the glands, blackheads appear. When this carnation suffers from an infection by bacteria that are common in our skin, this carnation turns into the famous and dreaded pimple.

Taking care of your skin is simpler than you think

It's a fact: many people still believe that to take care of the skin it is necessary to invest horrors in expensive products and aesthetic treatments, but in fact, taking care of our skin is much simpler than we think. We don't need countless products, nor do we need to spend a lot of money to be able to take care of our skin, including affordable products and small changes in the habits I had that made my pimples disappear. It wasn't like magic, but it was a process that made me understand the importance of putting my skin care first, instead of trying to camouflage what I didn't like about it.

Change habits to do your skincare everyday

One of the biggest habit changes I had was that before I didn't moisturize my skin at all, because as it is oily I thought that moisturizing it would make it even more. However, when we don't hydrate the skin, our body understands that this is aggression and sends more oil as a defense, thus intensifying the appearance of pimples. In addition to the moisturizer, we can also use the serum, which is a liquid compound that prevents signs. In addition to also acting as a moisturizer, a few drops in the morning and at night are enough for you to notice the difference.

It may sound cliché, but water is one of the skin's main allies, because when we drink water, we keep our body hydrated from the inside out. So drink at least 2 liters of water a day. You will not only see a difference in the skin on your face, but in your entire body. Another ally is sunscreen, few people know but there are two types of sunscreen: chemical and physical. The first is easy to apply and, despite not causing damage, it allows the sun's rays to penetrate the skin. Already the physique has minerals in its composition, such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which are easily absorbed by the skin. The physical protector, even though it is more difficult to spread, works as a blocker and helps in the prevention of acne. Don't leave it out of your skin care routine!

As important as it is to clean your face, you also need to pay attention to how many times you do it a day. If you wash your face two or three times a day, using a special soap, your body will understand it as an aggression and will develop oiliness as a form of defense, causing the famous rebound effect. Wash your face once a day with an acne-friendly soap. Oh, and don't forget to remove your makeup before bed, it's important that you do this before bed to avoid clogging your pores.

As tempting as it may be, don't pop your pimples. When you squeeze your blackheads and pimples, you spread the microorganisms present in the region to areas that are healthy, that is, without acne. With that, new points of infection may arise and there are great chances of marks that are very difficult to get out.

What are the best skin products?


 Opt for products that are oil-free, non-comedogenic and for greater safety, hypoallergenic. The quality of the products you use directly interferes with your skin's health, as certain acne-triggering compounds may be in the formulation. Therefore, it is essential to pay attention to the origin of the cosmetic, and this applies to make-up or treatment creams. Also, you should opt for tools that you maintain your skin free of dirt and oil, like Facial Cleaning Scrubber which has ultra-hygienic silicone bristles paired with a deeply enjoyable ultrasonic vibrations that gives the skin a gentle but deep exfoliation, which expertly removes 99.5% of dirt and oil from the skin while providing a pro prep for enhanced absorption of your favorite skincare.

It might not make a lot of sense, but wash your hair regularly. When you go many days without washing your hair, it is natural for the scalp to produce and accumulate oil, which will consequently affect the skin, as the oil tends to “spread” across the face. If you apply makeup frequently, it is also important that you give your skin a rest day. Take moments just to let her breathe, without foundation, concealer or any other makeup item.

Although carnations and pimples appear naturally on the skin, there are also other factors that can influence their appearance or cause more inflammation, for example. If acne is a problem for you, it's important that you know a combination of factors that includes your day-to-day habits, but that should be analyzed by an expert. Thus, the indication if you want to avoid pimples is to visit a dermatologist. Only a professional will be able to tell you if the best thing is to do a treatment inside the clinic, such as peeling or exposure to lights, or if the best thing is to follow procedures at home with the products that he indicates according to the needs of your skin.
