  • how to prevent from having pimples?

    Posted by Anonymous on August 18, 2015 at 2:34 am

    Since my face is really oily and has pretty big pores, I often have some pimples on my face even though I always try to take care of my face not to have them.

    What should I do to stop having skin troubles? Are there some products that would really work well on pimples?

    How do you do your skin care routine for the skin troubles? Are you doing proper exfoliating, cleaning the pores clearly, and providing enough moisture on your face? Beside these processes, using proper skin care products that are fit to your skin is really important. What skin care products are you using? Aren’t they even bother your pimples?

    I think it would be better for you to use products that are good on cleaning pores and controlling excessive sebum to prevent your face from having pimples on the pores. There are many products that have these functions, but you should find that work the most on your face. In case you want to try a few, I have been using IASO Purifying toner and emulsion (http://go-iaso.com/collections/bundles/products/iaso-starter-kit) for about 2 months and I am satisfied with their functions of controlling sebum and keeping my skin refreshing and moist.

    @Biancang: I don’t think your at the correct forum to ask this questions.Most of the participants in this forum are chemists behind the products but not dermatologists. We can give advice based on our experience and that experience does not include medical so it would very wrong of us to provide medical advice!!! 

    Also, not to mention our opinions are certainly biased towards our brands and personal experiences.

    Don’t put comodegenic things on your skin, watch your diet. Apparently nutrition has a lot to do with acne according to what I read in Dermatology Magazine.

    I did some research on this a while back, when I was making anti-acne products. But, as @AuroraBorealis said, we’re not doctors, and aren’t qualified to give medical advice.

    That being said, I’m going to use this as a teaching moment, so I’m going to ask you questions instead of giving you answers. Being able to look things up on Google is a valuable life skill, so remember that doing this will help you later in everything, not just for this moment.
    1) What is a comedone? How is an open comedone different from a closed comedone?
    2) There are three things that have to be present on your skin in order for pimples (whiteheads) to happen. What are they?
    3) What causes open comedones? How can you remove them safely? What are the pros and cons of each method?
    4) What are the treatment methods for closed comedones? What are the pros and cons of each method?

    5) How does your body regulate sebum production?

    After answering all these questions, you will hopefully be in a position to answer some of your own question. If not, you are welcome to come back here and ask again.
