If your pimple breakouts are limited to mainly whiteheads and blackheads, you probably have mild acne – especially if your acne doesn’t cover large areas of your face or body.
A whitehead happens when the opening to the pore is closed off and the hair follicle fills with oil and dead skin cells.
A blackhead occurs if the opening to the pore is blocked by a dark plug of oil and dead skin cells. A chemical reaction causes the surface to darken and form a blackhead.
Early treatment and a simple, regular skin care routine can help reduce mild acne.
Importantly, there’s no need to spend a fortune on expensive skin care.
You can get many quality acne-improving treatments without a prescription at pharmacies or on supermarket shelves that will help you control mild acne.
