Where did that pimple come from?
Acne is caused by the acne gene, which you have if you have acne, and it is activated by inflammation, which is caused by stress, low thyroid, and the foods you eat. Gluten is the #1 food to stop if you have acne. Particularly if you have significant acne and no one with acne should have cow’s milk or cow’s milk cheese. Choose sheep and goat cheese instead. Avoid ALL sugar and carbs (carbs turn into sugar in the body) because they just feed the acne. For all of you, chocolate lovers choose raw cacao over regular chocolate because it is packed with Vitamins A, C, and E.
Why you should NEVER pick a pimple
Popping a pimple is something you should AVOID. Picking at a pimple can cause a hair follicle to rupture, forcing the contents of the pimple into deeper tissues. This can lead to skin inflammation, scarring, discoloration, and the formation of new pimples in nearby areas. In some cases, the damage caused to the skin may be permanent.
So PLEASE at all costs avoid picking!
