Facial Flaws

When you talk about acne we’re talking about clogged skin pores, or deep lumps on our face, chest, back, neck, shoulders and upper arms. These may be called whiteheads, blackheads, cysts or nodules. If you are a teenager you’re probably going to get acne. In fact, you could get it even if you’re as old as 40 something. While it won’t threaten your life, it could upset your life by disfiguring you permanently. Even acne that’s not severe could end up doing that. Hormones that change during the start of puberty are the reason you get acne. Sebaceous (oil glands) work overtime during this time in your life. They are generally reacting to androgens, a male hormone. Females have androgens too, though not as men as guys. A sebaceous follicle – a hair shaft inside your sebaceous gland – is the culprit. When you are in puberty the cells of […]
