Most of us face this problem during the teens. For some it becomes a nightmare, while others are spared to some extent. But only a handful can dodge the issue completely. If you are a teenager, be afraid … be very, very afraid of it. The mighty Pimples.
I am sure everyone, who is in their teens, or have passed it recently or otherwise, should agree with me on this. Pimples can trouble you at any age, but during these days, it becomes our prime opponent. It ruins all our plans and everything seems to go wrong just for them.
To begin with, they are painful. You accidentally touch it and Ouch! That girl, you wanted badly, tried to be close, and Ouch! They make your life hell. You want to scratch them all off your face, but somehow they keep growing more and more. And when the heads start turning white, its the worst your face looked in years. Oh! no, just wait till the head bursts. Your face have turned nasty with small spots and gunk oozing out of them. Oh! God! Why me? Why do my face have to look that bad?
And then, when you discover those small red devils on the morning of that special day, just before going for the shave? Firstly, no matter how much care you take, you wont be able to keep the blades of the razor away from them. It will hurt and then you will have hard time stopping the blood and in the end you will be left with those ugly spotted cheeks.
I can go on writing about the problems I faced during my teens just because of pimples. They irritated me, frustrated me, and forced me to start learning more about them. I spend hours and came to know, that though the exact cause is not yet proved, it is believed that during adolescence, the oil glands under our skin grow and produce more oil. This breaks down the cell walls of the pores and helps growth of bacteria.
So the main reason was an excessively oily skin. And also the bacteria that is produced due to it. So next I tried searching for remedies. I found our very own Neem leaves have great medicinal properties. They are used widely as anti-bacterial, anti-fungal agent and in removing skin parasites. I got quick results after applying Neem leaves pastes on the pimples. That was how I got out of this huge problem.
But today when I chanced upon a tube of Garnier Pure Active Neem Face Wash, I felt jealous. Only if this product was there when I needed it. It would have saved me loads of time, which I spend boiling the leaves and making pastes. This face wash contains real Neem Leaf and Tree Tea Oil extracts which –
1) Fights germs: Washes away problem causing germs.
2) Fights Pollution: deep cleans pores to remove impurities caused by pollution.
3) Removes Oil: Washes away excess oil which attracts dirt & germs.
Today’s teenagers are really lucky!
