Closed | #FridayFreebie: Get your pimple problem sorted with Pond’s

People have been attempting to fight pimples for centuries. Despite the multitude of anti-pimple products available, the condition still afflicts an estimated one in ten people, making them the eighth most common skin problem worldwide.

Common myths about pimples

* Washing your face multiple times a day is the best way to fight pimples. Not true, washing your face too much will rob the skin of its natural oils and cause it to produce more, increasing the likelihood of breakouts. This can also be said of using harsh scrubs, exfoliators, and toners.

* Your make-up make is the reason you break out. Wrong, not if you’re applying and removing it properly and remembering to take off your make-up before bed. Also, remember to clean make-up brushes regularly. They could be collecting germs and dirt, which ends up on your skin!

* The Banana Peel myth is just that a myth. Bananas are good for your health, but not for your pimples! They are known to clog your pores, creating an unhealthy breeding ground for germs!

* The Toothpaste Myth. You think that tingling sensation is the toothpaste drying out your pimples? You’re wrong. It’s actually the harsh toothpaste irritating your delicate skin!
