Overcoming Nodules Such As Boils And Pimples On The Face?
Hello doctor, permission to ask, how to avoid facial skin that often appears bumpy like boils or pimples, what should I do? and to get rid of black scars on the face what to do? thanks.
Hello. Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Pimples on the face can be caused due to clogged pores, so that the oil glands and clogged sweat produce blackheads (blocked oil glands) or milia (prickly heat, due to clogged sweat glands). These blockages can lead to triggering a bacterial infection on the facial skin, resulting in inflamed pimples.
The blockage is often caused by dirt and dead skin cells that accumulate on the skin of the face. Therefore, it is very important to clean your face regularly 2-3 times a day, especially after doing activities outside the home.
Choosing facial washing soap must also be right. Avoid soaps that cause a dry and attractive effect on the face, usually those containing Sodium Lauryl Sulphate. A face that is too dry due to facial washing soap, indicates the acid mantle is also rinsed. Though this acid mantle also prevents the skin from bacterial infections that cause acne, so that soap that dries the skin can actually trigger acne. For that, choose facial washing soap that can cleanse, while moisturizing and not damaging the acidic layer of facial skin. Usually this type of soap has the same pH as facial skin, which is around 5.5-6.5. Excessive skin dryness also causes wrinkles to appear easily.
To get rid of black spots on scars or pimples on the face, materials that have whitening effects can be used, such as alpha arbutin, vitamin C, azelaic acid, hydroquinone, etc. For this matter, you should first discuss it with a dermatologist, because its use must be in a certain concentration to keep it safe to use. If the level is too high, instead of removing stains, it can cause skin irritation, or even harm internal organs.
As for what you should do to maintain facial skin health are:
Wash your face regularly, as mentioned above, with a suitable pH soap and hypoallergenic Use scrubs or masks 1-2x a week to help remove dead skin cells on the face thoroughly. Use products on the face that are suitable for your skin type (dry, oily, normal, sensitive, combination) and of course that do not cause allergies to you. An easy way to test for allergies is to apply these ingredients behind your ears, if after that you feel pain, burning, redness, then you might be allergic to the ingredients in the product. Drink 2 liters of water per day to maintain skin hydration. Enough fruit and vegetable consumption. That's all the explanation from me. May be useful
