Hello Anwar, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Acne that never goes away will certainly interfere with appearance and make it uncomfortable. Acne is a skin problem that is quite complex because it involves the hormone system (especially testosterone), excess oil production, piles of dead skin cells, and also bacterial infections. Some things that make a person more prone to acne are age factors, where in adolescence, a person will produce more testosterone which results in excess oil in the skin; dirty face (for people who rarely clean their face, especially after using makeup); people with sensitive facial skin types; and so forth.
The form of acne itself is different for each person. There are some people whose pimples appear only in the form of blackheads (keep in mind that blackheads are included as a form of zits, both white head blackheads or black heads). However, in some people with a large number of skin bacteria (acne-causing bacteria: Propionibacterium acnes), blackheads can be infected so that pimples appear in the form of bumps or even filled with pus. This inflammation causes pain in pimples.
Acne can be prevented in several ways, for example:
always clean your face, choose facial soap that suits your skin type. You can do a mask + scrubbing on facial skin to remove dead skin cells, more leverage if done 2x a week (too often is also not good). It's better to consult a doctor before trying. consumption of nutritious foods (fruits and vegetables) and avoid foods that are high in fat and oily drink enough water (at least 8 glasses / day) do not scratch or tamper with acne avoid using makeup too thick for a long time, and make sure to use make up up which is non-comedogenic. For the treatment of acne, this depends on the severity of your acne. If it's still mild, maybe you will be given medicine to remove dead skin cells only. But if it's heavy enough, your doctor can also prescribe antibiotics for you. The use of salt water to deal with acne to date has not yet been determined for its effectiveness, and its effects for each person may be different. My advice, if acne is really annoying, check yourself with a dermatologist so your doctor can do an examination of your skin and estimate the cause of your acne, and the appropriate treatment options.

That's all, hopefully it's useful.
