You may have ninety-nine problems, and half of them might be related to your pimple problems. Pimples, also known as acne, form when your skin’s oil glands become overactive and your pores become inflamed. Some skin bacteria can aggravate pimples. Pimples can appear anywhere on the skin, but they are most common on the face. Having pimple problems can be traumatic for some, considering the harsh comments that people usually give.
Pimples on the face cause itching and discomfort that forces you to scratch them, leading to scarring. The most common issue experienced by the majority of teens is pimple scars. These scars remind you of the uninvited guests that pop up at any time. Although your pimple problems can be put to ease using home remedies, it is suggested to consult a dermatologist to get appropriate advice.
Reasons for Pimple Problems
People who have pimples are considered to be unhygienic, which is absolutely wrong! They have nothing to do with your hygiene. It is completely natural to get pimples, but it might be a problem if you have a lot of them. There are numerous reasons for getting pimple problems.
Pimples due to Heat
Heat causes pimples, called heat acne or sweat acne. The pimples due to heat usually appear as small, raised, pus-filled pimples. The sweat clogs pores that give rise to pimples. The treatment for mild heat rash is to remove yourself from exposure to excessive heat. Your rash will most likely clear once your skin cools down.
Pimples due to Mango Consumption
Summers are not complete without mangoes! No amount of mangoes are enough. But eating s lot of them can lead to pimples. Mangoes contain a lot of carbohydrates, thereby making them high in glycemic index. This means that they can spike blood glucose and insulin levels. According to research, high insulin levels are a significant cause of acne. So, does this mean that you have to cut out mangoes? Absolutely not. Limit your consumption such that your insulin levels do not rise.
Pimples due to Hormones
Hormonal imbalance is a widespread cause of pimples. If testosterone rises in females, it leads to increased production of sebum. This sebum mixes with the dirt and bacteria on the skin and clogs pores, thus, causing acne. Hormonal changes during puberty also cause pimples, especially on the cheeks, chin and T-zone. Sometimes, pimples may aggravate and become very painful cystic acne.
Pimples due to Stomach Problem
The stomach plays a considerable role in our body’s well-being. It is vital to digest foods using their acidic properties. However, if stomach acids become unbalanced, it can cause improper digestion. This improper digestion leads to acne or pimple breakout. Constipation can also cause pimples due to the accumulation of toxins in the body. In addition, people with gluten intolerance are also likely to have pimple problems.
Pimples due to Diabetes
Diabetes is a major health problem that causes acne. In diabetes, the balance of insulin hormone that breaks down glucose is impaired. This imbalance leads to a spike in blood sugar. Studies reveal that overproduction of insulin gives rise to pimple problems. Eating foods with a high glycemic index raises blood sugar which in turn causes skin problems.
Pimples due to Dehydration
You have heard a million times, but it is true; dehydration causes pimples. Many studies show that dry skin leads to the overproduction of oil that clogs pores. It is often mistaken that dry skin does not produce oil, which is quite wrong. It does produce oil and causes breakouts, especially on the forehead and near your ears. If you see the occurrence of pimples in these areas, drink water to quench your dry skin!
Pimples due to Irregular Periods
Irregular periods may point to an underlying condition of the polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is a leading hormonal imbalance in females that causes excessive hair growth, skin darkening, and acne. Increased testosterone causes pimple problems that may aggravate and cause inflammation. Hormonal therapy is used to treat this problem.
Pimples due to Impure Blood
Blood is a vital part of our body. It moves throughout and transports oxygen and nutrients. If the blood becomes impure due to any reason, it can cause a lot of health problems. A reason for impurities in the blood can be excessive consumption of junk food, according to research. Impure blood can cause pimples on the face and other parts of the body as well.
Pimples indeed are a nuisance. They can pop up unexpectedly and ruin a perfect day of yours. You can prevent them to an extent, but usually, you would need professional guidance. If you have pimple problems, do not hesitate to seek medical advice. Consult a certified dermatologist to get authentic and reliable treatment for your skin problems.
