Trying to put layer upon layer of concealer on our face to cover that bump, well I say no more.

Here are some of the easiest and quickest remedies to get rid of these little monsters.

Causes and types of acne:

First, it is important to understand what causes these things to plague our skin:

The first one and the most common ones are the blackheads and the whiteheads which are usually found on the nose and nasal area, however, in some cases, they might affect the outer part of your cheeks.

The blackheads are caused when bacteria, dead skin and harmful substances clog the follicles and reach the surface and by coming in contact with the air they make their presence noticeable, as for whiteheads they caused due to the presence of excessive oil, the glands are clogged with oil and covered by skin. Therefore, the oil does not reach the surface and is trapped between the skin layers.

The second type of acne that appears on our skin is pustules they are hard to touch and are usually filled with pus, they mostly appear as white spots on the surface but the centre is mostly pale yellow, it is usually advised not to picking or bursting. They are caused mainly when the pores of your skin become clogged with oil and dead skin cells.

The cyst is the type of the acne that is deep, appears big, and is pus-filled. It is actually painful to touch and needs immediate attention from a doctor.
