Salma had a very soft and smooth skin


Salma had a very soft and smooth skin during her childhood. As she entered adolescence, she developed pimples on her face. The skin

specialist advised her to wash her face at regular intervals. Can you explain the reasons for the appearance of pimples on her face and

suggest ways to prevent them?


During adolescence, the secretion of sweat glands (sweat) and sebaceous glands (oil) increases. The excess oil and sweat gets collected in the tiny

pores of the skin blocking them.

Bacteria grow in these blocked pores causing swelling and redness which leads to the formation of acne and pimples. Regular face wash keeps

the face clean and dry and helps to reduce the pimples.
