If you are an acne sufferer you may experience that different parts of your body or face display different kind of acne and pimples. Both which you wish would disappear forever. But are acne and pimples the same? No, they are not. So how do you differentiate them and how can you tackle each?
Are acne and pimples are the same?
No acne and pimples are not the same. While acne is a condition that affects you hair follicles and oil glands, pimples are only one of its symptoms.
So how can you tell the difference between acne and pimples?
Acne’s caused by the production of excess sebum. Which is an oil that stops the skin from drying out. This oil clumps together with dead skin cells within your pores, causing an acne lesion or spot.
These lesions vary in size and severity. Pimples appear when the clogged pores become infected. The bump you see on your skin is due to an infestation of bacteria, and a single pimple is born.
While a pimple is usually a singular infected bump, acne is the presence of several pus-filled breakouts spread across the skin.
If you are experiencing frequent breakouts, you probably suffer from acne. Having persistent breakouts can affect your self-esteem massively, but there are plenty of effective treatments on the market to help keep your acne under control.
