Pimples, Causes and Natural Remedies
Pimples are a great cause of concern to both men and women. These are cause by excess oil getting trapped beneath our skin. Our skin cells are shed at regular intervals, to rejuvenate the skin. Sometimes the dead cells may be left behind and mix with sebum to block the skin pores. The sebaceous glands produce more sebum, which gets trapped behind the blockage. Bacteria like propione bacterium acnes now form in this trapped sebum causing infection and pimples.
They frequently occur on the face, neck, back, and shoulders.
