Question: I have pimples and black marks on my face. It looks very ugly. I request you to give me a solution for recovery in a week or 15 days.
Answer: Acne or pimples is a very common skin disorder, which is manifested in the form of blackheads, whiteheads, pink or purple pimples, and cysts.
Invariably pimples occur due to imbalances in the hormonal profile. An upsurge in the level of testosterone causes the sebaceous glands to enlarge and produce large quantities of sebum. Also, keratin formation increases. Consequently, the pores get blocked and this leads to the formation of blackheads.An infection and inflammation of this blackhead leads to pimple formation.
