Life Cycle of A Pimple – The Happy Skin Care

Life Cycle of A Pimple

#MakeReadingAHabit ‼️

For the most part, Pimples don’t just pop out of nowhere! They can start forming weeks (sometimes months) before you see a red bump errupt on your skin. It doesnt happen when you use a skincare product for 2-3 days.

Keep in mind, this general guide and NOT all pimples take this EXACT course. Sometimes a papule doesn’t turn into a pustule because maybe you use a certain product (like acne spot treatment / serum / toners) that help to calm the inflammation and dissolve skin cells like salicylic acid which helps kill bacteria.

What causes acne?
There are a number of factors that can contribute to the development and worsening of acne, but there are only 4 biological causes:

* Increase Oil Production
 Solution: Balance hormones

* A build up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin
 Solution: Exfoliate / increase cell turnover (Retinol/AHA/BHA those can be found in Starter Kit & Clear Bomb)

* P. acnes bacteria
* Inflammation / Immune response to bacteria
