They always appear at the wrong moment, are unsightly and mostly in the middle of the face - we're talking about pimples. It has happened to most of us that a pimple is discovered or felt at the most inopportune moments. But what exactly is a pimple anyway? How does a pimple develop and, above all, who belongs to the group at risk of getting pimples? Everyone affected has certainly already asked themselves how to counteract the pimples and are there also possibilities to take preventive measures?


What are pimples?

Pimples are the most common and most widespread skin disease, which, contrary to what many people think, not only occurs during puberty, but can also occur regularly in adulthood. A pimple is a clogged pore that becomes inflamed. It is not only bacteria and dirt particles that are responsible for the inflammation of the skin in everyday life. Significant inflammation of the skin is caused by sweat, increased sebum production or dead skin cells, which contribute to the development of pimples.

A large number of pimples or a significant and mostly extensive inflammation of the skin, especially on the face, is referred to as acne, which must be treated professionally to avoid scarring.


How do pimples form? Who gets pimples or acne?

The main reason for pimples is impurities. The pimples develop in the course of the body's own process, which transports dead skin particles to the surface and renews them. However, if they are prevented from doing so, for example by bacteria, impurities in the skin or overproduction of the sebaceous glands, this leads to constipation. The sebaceous glands usually ensure healthy skin that regenerates itself, but overproduction does the opposite. Basically, regular thorough cleaning and care of the skin with the right products is important. Those who clean their skin and keep it free of dirt and dead skin particles significantly minimize the risk of pimple formation.

In general, anyone can get a pimple. During puberty and pregnancy, the inflammation of the skin is favored by the hormone changes and the resulting increased sebum production. There is also a genetic predisposition, especially for the severe form of inflammation of pores, acne, so the genome of the parents can already contain a susceptibility to acne. But also daily environmental influences, especially pollution in the air, can lead to blockages of the pores, which then become inflamed. However, the daily stress on the skin can be prevented and thus often prevent the development of new pimples.
