I hate pimples! I really don't like waking up to one and when I do, I have to resist the temptation of popping it or drying it out with toothpaste!
The worst thing you can do to pimples is popping them or scratching it. Pimples could be either painful or itchy. It can either have an "eye" or just a red bump. The best thing to do is really care for them. They take about 3-4 days to clear, but when they do, the battle isn't over. You have nasty acne scars and marks to deal with.
2 Fridays ago, I was on an outdoor shoot where we were under the sun for about 3 hours. I seeked shelter under the shade of a huge tree for about half the time but when I got home, I found that some parts of my face darkened, and parts of my legs and arms as well. I looked like a dalmatian! I figured that it would go away in time but it really wasn't nice to look at.
I did some reading and the only way to stop my skin from further darkening was to use whitening products because these products control melanin production which darken the skin when you have been exposing yourself in UV in long periods of time. I have always been afraid of these products because I was afraid to look white-pink or even gray! So that's why I avoided whitening lotions and soaps at all cost.
