We can all agree on this, I’m sure nobody feels happy when they see pimples on their faces. I don’t like that too. But to resolve an issue from its roots, we have to go deeper to understand it well.
This is quite a long and educational article, but it will be worth the time to read and understand the problem deeper and better so that we can resolve it for good. Resolve it once and for all.
Pimples can occur at any age, although it is more frequently seen in the teenage years and lesser after the age of 25. However, due to reasons such as diet or wrong/lack of skincare, it could still happen after 25.
I am over 25 but I could still see pimples every now and then, especially days when it’s too hot, or I’m eating overly heaty, etc. Don’t you wish there is something, maybe a quick pop of pills, and somehow we’ll not have pimples for the next 10 years?
Now that I think again, maybe I should have studied science instead of business. Hahaha.
But let’s go back to the basics.
Honestly, what causes pimples?
There are a few reasons for this. To put it simply, there is a blockage when the pores are clogged so the things inside accumulated and erupt like a volcano.
For most people, it happens during puberty when the hormone production in the body changes. Our body is growing so meanwhile, the face could be more oily, and when we are young, we don’t really know much skincare knowledge. Coupled with a lack of knowledge and bad practices, those little volcanoes start popping out one by one.
For ladies, around or during menstruation, some might have pimples too due to the same reason above, hormonal changes.
But for the most part, it is mostly due to the clogging. It can be clogging or dirt (lack of skin washing) of our sebaceous glands, also known as oil glands. These oil glands are found in the pores of our skin, secreting small amounts of oil to keep our face moisturized and healthy. If the oil glands are not working well, resulting in more oil being secreted, this increases the chance of clogging.
Have you noticed that when you’re stressed, the face is slightly oilier too? Being in a stressful environment messes with our bodies.
However, the outer layer of our skin sheds on a monthly basis, and sometimes not all dead skin is properly shed. It remains on the skin, clogging the pores.
Imagine a car blocking the road, cars behind will be forced to stop there and wait. That is what exactly happens in the pores too. The dead skin clogs the pores but the oil is secreting as normal, slowly accumulating and accumulating, and eventually turns into a pimple, waiting to erupt.
As the cycle continues, there will be more blockage on the skin, and that affects a lot of things. It starts with a less ideal visual appearance, followed by your confidence, and it could affect your life too.
And without proper understanding, we tend to buy products just to “try and see” and the condition worsens instead. I have to admit this, that happens to me. Having undergone this, now I understand that proper knowledge of skincare is extremely important.
Rather than taking a risk and “try”, we should understand it from the roots and resolve it from the roots too. That is a much better, safer, and permanent solution.
To help our clients resolve issues from the roots, we are using a traditional and well-known chinese technique, if you are involved in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), you might have heard of this extremely beneficial technique, meridian bojin.
It comes from the word Meridian and Bojin. Meridian, in a chinese acupuncture definition, is a set of pathways in the body along which vital energy is said to flow. And Bojin is a deep acupressure facial massage that stimulates pressure points, using special tools such as this below.
It’s a facial massage stick made from jade that stimulates different points and pathways of the face. It’s an extremely good and beneficial tool that has helped a lot of our customers’ bloated faces to become tighter and younger.
Similar to body and foot massage that relieves and solves the pain of many, such chinese technique also applies to facial massage.
Real usage, real people, real results
Imagine the canal near your home is blocked, and water is not able to flow properly. Dirt and rubbish will accumulate near the blocked area, resulting in even more blockage.
The same thing will happen for our body and face too, when an area is blocked, something has to be done to clear it, in order to feel and look better.
