5 ways to keep pimples at bay
Our skin has its up and downs and on really bad days, we just want to hide under our blankets. And it can affect anyone – even stars with access to the top dermatologists in the world. Kendall Jenner addressed critics of her skin at the Golden Globes by saying “Never let that s— stop you.” New Zealand pop star Lorde has been opening up about her own “years and years and years”- long acne battle and is letting people know she doesn’t need any unsolicited advice, #thanksbutnothanks.

5 common skincare mistakes to avoid

But when it comes to men, they usually shun facials like the plague! Somehow, the sad excuse that “my soap can do the job just fine” has managed to survive past the millennia and into our 21st century. A little like cockroaches…
For most of us going through puberty (and sometimes even after!), pimples are THE bane from HELL. They hurt when they are forming, they look and feel disgusting once they are RIPE with pus, and they positively OOZE with yellow sulphur-like toxins when they burst! But that’s not all. After the breakout, the pimple signs off with a little parting gift: an acne scar.
