  • What are pimples?
  • Why do pimples occur?
  • How can we treat pimples

First, let us see what these tiny, little bumps are and what causes them.

Ummm.. So What are Pimples?

A pimple is a small inflammation or swelling of the skin that may or may not be filled with pus. Pimples are usually caused by acne, a skin condition caused by clogged or inflamed oil glands, or an increased presence of pimple-causing bacteria on your skin.

Pimples are not the same as acne. They are one symptom of acne skin condition. There are different types of pimples that occur on the skin. 

Now, let us look at the reasons for getting pimples.

Why Does Pimple Occur?

Hormone imbalance

Hormonal imbalance in our body is the main reason for pimples popping up on our face.  Hormonal factors affect the skin when there is a rise in androgen levels. 

Rising androgen levels cause oil glands to grow under the skin, which produces more sebum. Excessive sebum can break down the cellular walls in the skin pores, allowing bacteria to grow. The result? Pimples, of course!


Did you know that constant stress can affect skin health? Stress has a direct impact on our skin, which causes many problems such as pimples, acne, and  even wrinkles. This is due to the release of hormones such as androgen and cortisol, which in turn, release excess sebum —  and BOOM! Pimples start dotting your face..

Poor diet and lack of exercise

Appearance of pimples can also be linked to our diet and physical activity. Too much junk and oily food can cause breakouts due to their inflammatory properties. Lack of physical movement and exercise can also affect our skin, since the blood circulation around the face reduces. This leads to other skin complications.


You heard it right. Makeup is a definite enemy for our skin, if not properly removed. Chemicals ] in our makeup products can often trigger breakouts. It is essential to remove makeup before going to bed, otherwise, the residue on the skin can be lead to clogged pores and acne.

Next, let us move to the treatment for pimples.

How Do we get Rid of Pimples (through use of products)


Cleansing your face is a very simple, yet effective, technique to get rid of pimples. Wash your face with a mild cleanser twice a day and see the difference for yourself. Cleansing unclogs the skin pores and keeps them clean. It also removes dirt, dust and bacteria that stick to our face when we get exposed to the air outside. 

Use a mild cleanser that is free from harsh chemicals to soothe your sensitive skin. 

Use mild face wash

Since pimples occur when the skin gets oily, we have to remove the excess sebum from the skin by washing our face regularly. A simple, mild face wash goes a long way. Use it at least twice a day to avoid shiny, sticky skin. You can even use a mild, acne-clearing soap, which does the same job.

Pimple patch

Are you looking forward to an important meeting, but have pimples in your way? Fear not. Pimple patch comes to your rescue. Instead of popping those pimple bumps with your bare hands and causing more infection, you can switch to these patches that are very effective. 

First clean and moisturize your face. Then place the pimple patch sticker on the pimple and leave it overnight. You can even keep it on as you shower, as they are waterproof. Then, remove the patch sticker and wash your face normally.  These patches absorb liquid from the pimple and prevent further swelling or inflammation.

Anti-acne serums

When nothing works, serums are your angel saviors. If you have acne-prone skin, use these golden grails to get rid of pimples and prevent new ones from coming. Serums are formulated to clear and purify acne-prone skin. 

Serums such as hyaluronic acid or Vitamin C, promote collagen production and improve the overall texture of the skin. They contain actives packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties to fight ] pimples and whiteheads. Go for products with niacinamide or salicylic acid — these unclog the pores and clear the skin. 

Apply a pea size of the serum on your forehead,cheeks, chin and acne pits and slowly massage in a circular motion. Let it rest on the face to get absorbed completely. If you have extremely sensitive skin, you can try acne creams instead of serums as they are milder. 

Include vegetables and fruits

It is important to not only treat the exterior skin but also treat the body from within. Pimples are mainly caused due to inflammatory foods. Try adding more veggies and fruits in your diet as their antioxidant properties balance the skin pH levels to keep the skin clear. Drink sufficient water to cool down the body, and exercise regularly to improve blood circulation.

PS: Reduce sugar, salt and milk intake as much as possible.

In a nutshell, take care of both your skin and body for long-term skin benefits. Follow a proper skincare routine to keep bacteria and other pollutants away from your skin. Don’t forget your SPF and moisturizer wherever you go.
