  PIMPLES ON THE BACK - by Editor

Hi, I have a problem with my skin. I have pimples on my back and also have pimple marks. Can you please suggest something to cure my problemNULL
Thanks and regards,
Piyu

Every minute our skin sheds millions of dead cells. Instead of simply falling off and giving way to fresh cells underneath, these dead cells hang on, causing innumerable skin problems. The solution to most of these problems lies in exfoliation.

Often, when we apply soap to our bodies, it is not sufficient to remove all the layers of dirt, oil, dead skin cells and sebum blocking our pores. Although it is easy enough to clean the face well with a face wash as we tend to spend a minute or so scrubbing it, the same does not hold true for our entire body. Most of us just layer on the soap and wash it off. While we may spend more time cleaning our hands and stomach with the soap, we tend to neglect our back. This leads us to develop unsightly pimples and boils on the back, and if you live in a warm and humid climate, you will be especially prone to such pimples. Readers often write in and ask me what they can do to cure such skin problems. The answer lies in exfoliation. All you need to do is to scrub your back with a loofah or washcloth when in the shower. Apply soap, scrub your entire body well, concentrating on your back, and wash off. Your soap will also foam up much more, with the result that you will need to use less soap while bathing!

Scrub your entire body, not just the back. Remember to scrub towards the heart, which means up from the legs and stomach, and down from the shoulders.

The benefits of scrubbing are many. Not only does it clean up the skin completely, clearing out pores and enabling your body to pump out toxins more effectively, but it also reduces the likelihood of developing unsightly cellulite. In addition, scrubbing pumps up blood circulation and aids blood flow to the heart.

Treat your body to a wonderful spa-like salt scrub. Salt scrubs are famous for their ability to transform even dry, coarse skin into soft, glowing skin. You will need:
1 cup sea salt
Enough water or oil to form a paste. Oil is preferable to water.
Loofah

Dampen your entire body and then massage this mixture all over. You should enlist the help of a masseur or your spouse to do this. Once you have applied this mixture on your entire body, take a loofah and start scrubbing in a circular motion, working the mixture into your skin. Work upwards, beginning at the feet. After a half an hour massage, take a shower with warm water, and towel dry. Your skin will feel incredibly soft, and will be glowing with richness! For maximum benefit, do this on a weekly basis, and if that is not possible, do this at least once a month.

Comments:   In this scientific age there has to be some scientific explanation. This is a form of ACNE and the cause lies with circulating sex hormones and the glandular cell response of the skin at different places ( face, neck, chest and back ). No amount of salt bath with turmeric paste mud-bath or even dermatological treatment cures it. All are temporary measures.

Comments:   Since Indians have had to deal with chickenpox, Indian doctors probably know more about acne scars than American dermatologists-I think the cucumber/lemon juice combo is the best therapy for acne scars and I am a esthethetician.Many products in America that are commercially sold are pie in the sky treatments

Comments:   since i become 14 year old i start having pimples and now im 15 i still get pimpels and ma face looks soo horrible i tried some cream's for face bt still doesn help..and i have 1 question ! Does watching porn reducess pimples??? i really need help thank you

Comments:   Dear Anoosh, Watching porn doesn't cure pimples, actually watching porn won't cure anything. (Fortunately.) Be sure to keep washing your face regularly, and this above article should certainly help you. Pimples are mostly cause by blackheads, you should remove them yourself regularly. Pimples are caused by your skin to remove these blackheads. If you remove them yourself before it turns into a pimple, your skin will be much more clear. Hope this helps. P.S. you are too young to be watching or thinking about porn, don't do it for any reason. Be a good girl. Resh

Comments:   watching porn doesnt help u at all, itll only give u problems in other parts of your life. i suggest bring a water bottle with you everywhere and excercise and try to expose the pimples to a little bit of sun sometimes, its healthy... but DONT EVEN TOUCH the porn!

Comments:   Anoosh, there is nothing wrong with watching porn and/or mastorbating; it can even be a great stress reliever, and thereby reduce the amount of the stress hormone Cortisol which has been found to have negative long term effects on the body. There are also other stress relieving techniques you can do such as getting enough sleep, meditating, exercising...etc. Feeling urges to watch porn is completely natural. Relax and enjoy life:)

Thanks for the tip because its so hard not to be able to wear homecoming gowns without covering up. And I would really like to go to prom next year but am thinking about not going because of this problem. So thanks again and hopefully it'll work for me.
