Why must you get rid of oily skin and acne right away?
Acne is common during this age and is often a matter of concern for most individuals who want to start their new school fresh and clean. Usually, the first symptom of acne is visible as a small pimple which may aggravate and damage your skin if not taken care of. Some acne may also leave scars for a lifetime. So, it is always important to act sooner to keep your skin flawless.
The main cause of acne is excessive sebum that is released from the sebaceous glands present in your skin. If proper cleaning is not done or you have a skin that is too oily, the sebum can mix up with dirt and grime clogging your skin pores. As a result, bacteria find a suitable place to grow and cause an infection that shows up as acne.
