Now you have the Solution but what the reason behind your Acne

There are various terms that describe different forms of acne, such as comedones, papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts. Basically, comedones  are the name given to plugged follicles: an open comedone is called a blackhead because the surface is visible and turns “black” when it’s exposed to air. A closed comedo is a whitehead, which is like a blackhead, but is closed at the surface. Plugged follicles can become irritated and swollen enough to burst, thus affecting surrounding tissues. If a plugged follicle erupts above the skin’s surface, it becomes a pimple; when it erupts below the surface, it forms a red lump, such as a nodule or cyst.

How bad can acne get?

There are basically three levels of severity:

Mild acne consists of a few lesions that are close to the surface, and not deep or inflamed.

Moderate acne is marked by deeper nodular lesions and some redness.

Severe acne involves many lesions, multiple cysts, and a great deal of redness and inflammation.

What can trigger acne flare-ups?

There are a number of factors that can make acne flare up or lead to “breakouts”, although triggers can vary from person to person. Avoiding the things that you notice may make your acne worse is a good way to help control your acne. For example,


Make-up and hair care products can clog pores. When shopping, look for the following acne-friendly terms on product labels: “oil-free”, “non-comedogenic”, or “non-acnegenic”.  

Physical pressure

Pressure due to a chin strap, phone receiver, sports helmet, headband, guitar strap, bra strap and other tight clothing can lead to localized acne that develops at the point of skin contact.


Sweating can worsen acne in some people. Most likely, it is because sweating helps to clog pores, especially if trapped under clothing.


Washing your face twice a day with a mild cleanser is recommended for acne-prone skin. Cleaning it more often, scrubbing/exfoliating, or using strong cleansers or astringent products (i.e. toners with alcohol) can actually strip the skin and irritate it, which can lead to more acne.


Certain medications can cause acne to flare up, such as oral corticosteroids, some contraceptive pills (progestin only), and anti-convulsives, to name a few.  

Menstrual cycle

Many girls and women may notice that their acne flares up as they are nearing their monthly period.

Picking or squeezing

Touching acne lesions can make them worse and raise the risk of permanent scarring. Squeezing or popping pimples can cause an eruption of sebum and bacteria into surrounding skin tissues leading to more swelling and redness and possibly infection.  


Specific foods or dietary habits can cause or worsen acne. If you find that a certain kind of food seems to aggravate your acne, try removing it from your diet.
