It is very rare to find someone who didn’t go through “pimple problems”. Pimple breakouts usually begin during the age of puberty. This is because there is same surge in hormones that cause changes in a teenager’s body trigger acne breakouts too. The main acne-causing hormone is testosterone.
Increase in testosterone levels cause the skin’s sebaceous glands to make more sebum or oil. This excess sebum tends to combine with dead skin cells which clog the pores and cause pimple breakouts. In adults, hormone-related acne persists.
This is especially true for women who get acne whenever their testosterone levels goes up before menstruation period and during pregnancy. Adults who take steroid supplements or are under hormone therapy will also get acne as a side effect. That is why some dermatologists prescribe birth control pills for acne to counteract the effects of testosterone.
The more it swells the more possibility of getting acne scars. One way to get rid of these scars is to use ice cubes. You can press the ice cubes for 2-3 minutes and then you can apply also some grounded aspirin on your skin.
The ice cubes will help reduce the swelling of the skin and the aspirin will help get rid of acne. It can be a little painful but it is worth it since your scars will eventually disappear with this treatment.
