A beautiful face attracts everybody. A beautiful face not only means sharp nose, sharp jawlines, big bright eyes, full lips but also a flawless skin. The physical structure of the face is a gift from nature, but the outer beauty of the skin depends a lot on how much we take care of them. Some of the beauty problems of the face starts from a very young age.
Pimples , uneven skin tone, white & black heads, marks and wrinkles are some of the common problem and can happen to both boys and girls. However it has been seen that they usually occur in the age group of 12-30 years. According to experts, eruption of pimples is associated with hormonal changes in the body. Boys and girls by the age of 12 undergo many hormonal changes. In girls it is the age when they get their first period, and it has also been observed in many cases pimples occur due to irregular period.
Pimples may also occur due to constipation and eating too much chocolates and sweets.
There are many oil glands on our face, back and chest which release oil and keep our skin soft. But due to hormonal changes during adulthood they are stimulated and excrete more oil than normal. At time they can block the skin pores.
In some people these glands secrete more oil, which gets accumulated on the surface of the skin in the form of white heads. As time passes by due to oxidization the skin cells turn into black heads.
Black heads can be removed, but this is not a permanent solution since the glands will continue secreting the oil.
It is important to keep the skin clean as far as possible.Dirt & oils accumulated on the skin can cause infection and these closed pores can develop into pimples.
It is important to consult a doctor if you have an excessively oily skin and have been getting pimples quite frequently. Some doctors advise antibiotics or sulfa(sometimes called sulpha drugs) based remedies which not only lessen the swelling, but also control the oil secretion. Take Vitamin A supplements and avoid milk, cheese & butter.
Avoid using oil based cream and avoid being in places where there is a lot of dust. Wash your face 3-4 times a day. When you have pimples, it is a good idea to keep you finger nails short, since these pimples can cause irritation and we can avoid scratching these pimples with our nails. Scratching the pimples can make the situation more painful.
For women try to consult a doctor if you have irregular periods.
Avoid tension and stress as recent studies have found that tension and stress can stimulate the oil glands to secrete more oil thereby increasing the chances of getting pimples.
Uneven skin tone is mostly due to some internal health problems such as stomach disorder, constipation, infection in blood or liver disorder. Uneven skin tone can also result from sunburn. It is important to use sunscreen lotion with SPF 15* (based on recommendations by doctors in your country) everytime you step out and reapply after every 6 hours.
For skin marks it is advised that you consult a skin specialist. Some home remedies can work if used for a prolonged period. Rubbing lemon juice mixed with honey is very effective.
