What Causes Pimples?

Sometimes it might seem that puberty is the worst time to get zits. After all, your body's going through so many other changes already. Unfortunately, zits are a result of those changes.

 

You may be wondering, "What causes pimples?" As your body changes and matures during your teenage years, hormones like testosterone are produced in your ovaries and adrenal glands. Testosterone stimulates oil production. So basically acne is a hormone problem. As you mature and your hormones calm down, your acne will most likely go away.

 

You're not alone: Unlike periods, zits are a puberty issue that boys have to deal with, too!

There is a simple, and very easy remedy that helps relieve my pimples: honey. It's an antibacterial, and it's gentle, so it works awesome. I use it as a pimple preventer, and in one month, my forehead is almost pimple free (i previously had a lot) How to use: before bed, dab honey on tender, red, bumpy spots that you know will turn into big whiteheads. The next morning, it will be gone, there will be less redness, or it will be a small whitehead that's almost unnoticable. Try it, and you will love it. It might not be a cure-it-all, but it keeps it under control.
