Fighting acne and blackheads with Aloe Vera
Acne and blackheads can be a real nightmare, especially for young people – in fact, around 80% of teenagers are affected. The problem affects the hair follicles and sebaceous glands, leading to the formation of blackheads, pimples. The causes of acne and oily skin can be very varied: from poor skin care, to hormonal problems, to poor diet.
But the real cause of pimples and blackheads is sebum: excess sebum, clogged pores or inflamed skin cause comedones to form, which can be blackheads or small cysts, which in turn turn turn into pimples.
