Dont squeeze your Pimple!

As most of my readers keep asking me "whats the harm in popping a pimple?", I thought of putting up a whole article on it here.Let me begin by asking you why you squeeze your pimple.most common reason is that it disappears fast if you squeeze it....right?

Now let me tell you what happens when you squeeze a pimple.
Pimple(acne) is a skin infection caused by propionibacterium acnes predisposed by oiliness of face and increased androgen secretion in the body.Because it is a bacterial infection squeezing it causes thousands of bacteria to spill over your skin and pass into the blood circulation promoting pimples over other areas of your face.So this simply means if you have one pimple and you squeeze it then you are likely to get some more.

Moreover a pimple has associated inflammation with it.Squeezing a pimple promotes inflammation and also causes darkening of the skin around the pimple as you step out in the sun.This is called hyperpigmentation.It may take a while for this pigmentation to go.

The blackhead or the white head that you squeeze leaves the area injured that heals with a scar often making the pore bigger with poor elasticity making them look larger.It is one of the reason of having large pores on skin.

Now next time you see an ugly pimple on your face be patient to get consultation from a dermatologist and don't squeeze it right away.

What you did not know about Shampoos!

Here are some interesting facts about shampoos.Most of the hair problems you are facing may be due to the wrong choice of shampoo or your way of using it.

1.The most common ingredient of a shampoo is a detergent base.This is how it cleans your scalp and hair.The main function and in my opinion the only function of a shampoo is to clean your hair.

2.Many herbal shampoos sold in the market have just 1-2% of herbal ingredients. Hence most of them are still synthetic.

3.Do not change your shampoo very frequently if you want to prevent hair fall.Once you find a suitable shampoo for you hair stick to it!

4.Even if you have a big bottle of shampoo with you ,don't use more than required amount because it will wash off the natural oils from your hair making then rough and dry.Hmm now you know why you got those split ends on your hair tips :(

5.Do not shampoo your hair too frequently.It will promote dryness and split ends.
