Pimples are caused when the sebaceous glands(microscopic glands in the skin) become overactive. It usually appears on face, back, chest and shoulders. Pimples are also known as acne. It occurs when there are excessive blemish on the skin. Well, the causes are very long to describe and u may click here for a better explanation.
It is normal for a teenager to have pimples especially on the face. What if it still occur when we're like 20 something? Women are usually worry more than men when this happened because they think face is an asset of a woman. I know how it feels because I used to have the same problem and Alhamdulillah I manage to overcome it. I started to have pimples when I was in Form 4 after I went back from camping at Langkawi. My face was burned badly plus pimples are started to grow. At first, the pimples showed up like 1 or 2 but they appear more on the mid of the year. I was so upset. So, I've been using so many products and spending a lot for buying those but they do not work on me. One day, my friend suggested a clinic that can treat the pimples as she also having the same problem and even worse but at that time her face is having a healing process and the pimples are gone slowly. So, I went to the clinic and the doctor gave me Tidact acne gel.I've been using it for quite a long time. I juz stopped using it because I'm now trying a new product which I'll tell u later. I used the acne gel along with Aveer 2 Care Soap for cleanser. I juz used both of them and eventually the pimples are gone. But, it took me a long time to heal. I started to use them when I was in Form 5 until at the end of last year. Well, it is within 3 years time. Actually, I stopped using Aveer Soap because of the founder's death and the product is not in the shop anymore. Anyway, the founder is a good friend of Sosilawati.

I feel stressed out because it's hard for me to find a new cleanser that really suit me as I've been using Aveer for a long time without trying other products. I've been searching for what product that suitable for my sensitive skin and I found that Cetaphil is the one. I did some 'research' on Google. Then, I asked my cousin who is a pharmacist about the cleanser and he said that Cetaphil is good for all types of skin and blah blah blah. So, I decided to try it out and after 2 weeks the small acnes pop out. I was afraid because it suddenly appear and it reminds me when I was in school. I dun want the same thing happen again. But after 2-3 weeks, the acnes are slowly gone and my skin feels moisturized and clean. I replacing Tidact with Acne Serum from Garden of Eden as advised by a pharmacist and she said that the serum can act as a toner as well. I've been using them for almost 2 months and I think they suit me well.

So, if any of u are having the same problem, I would recommend this 2 products. Recently, some of my friends asked me how to treat the pimples and I told them from the very beginning. Fyi, my friends in UIA order Tidact from me since we're in CFS because it's hard to find around KL. So, I juz buy for them when I get the chance to go home and they usually order for quite a lot hehe. Ok, that's all I wanted to share so far. Lastly, I put the pic when I was in Form 4. Believe me, I have a serious pimples problem at that time.
