How does a button form?
A pimple is a cutaneous outgrowth that appears when a substance “sebum” is produced in excess. The Sebum is an oily substance that is secreted to protect the skin from external aggressions such as cold or pollution. Normally, to protect yourself, sebum forms a kind of protective film on your skin.
The epidermis (especially that of the face) is fragile, moisturizing creams or makeup not adapted to your skin type can cause excessive secretion. Other care, too aggressive, or too stripping, will certainly damage your skin but also trigger this protection system that will make your skin even more oily. Too much sebum will clog the pores of the skin which will form a pimple.
Its red color indicates inflammation and the development of bacteria. We must find appropriate care to stop inflammation.
