When we reach puberty, most people begin to experience pimples and acne. This is a skin condition that can cause several types of bumps to form on the surface of your skin.
Well, they say that you are more likely to have acne as teens if your parents had acne, too. But the good news is that, for most people, this skin condition goes away almost completely by the time they are out of their teens.
People who suffer from pimples and acne might be wondering why other people don’t seem to have them, but they do. According to medical studies, researchers have found a link between acne and pimples and higher levels of testosterone and other androgens, the “male” hormones that also exist in lower levels in females.
With higher testosterone levels appear to trigger greater activity in the sebaceous glands, resulting in more clogged pores and higher chance of getting acne. Some research shows that the food that we eat can also play a significant role in acne development.
After spending years of suffering from severe acne. This guy named, Raymond Meneses narrated his journey on how he achieved a face free from acne and pimples.
In his Twitter account, he shares his amazing before-and-after photo, including his secret or what he considered his “holy grail.”
According to Raymond, he suffers acne for 4 years. That’s why he seeks the help of a dermatologist.
They offered him something to apply and a soap, but he refused because according to him, he already tried countless expensive creams and soaps, but nothing worked.
After that, the dermatologist told him that the last resort is a pill that will reduce oil production. It’s a type of drug that requires a prescription and you also need to undergo some test to find out if it’s suitable for you. The pill also has severe side effects such as dry skin and lips, dry scalp, and everything is dry.
