Rihanna’s acne troubles
Rihanna is a flawless musician and singer. She has risen to the top of fame with her great talent. She also looks beautiful and all glam up.
But Rihanna too had problems with her skin, especially on her face. She too is a human being and has suffered from acne which in simple terms are pimples.
In one of the interviews, Rihanna admitted that she too takes her days off due to her pimples. It is laudable that she took the courage to speak about her skin problems in public.
She had once told a Star Magazine reporter:
“I have an ugly day every month; pimples on my face, I’m fat and in a bad mood. It’s more like an ugly week.”
Her coming out about her acne issue would assure those suffering from this problem that they are not alone.
Celebrities too suffer from the common acne and feel like hiding their face during those times. But instead of worrying, it is best to accept it and take steps to minimize the coming of the pimples as well as the scars due to the healing process.
The root cause of acne
Acne is a skin condition common during adolescence when there are spots and pimples that appear on the skin of the face, shoulders, upper back, chest, and upper arms.
It is not a life-threatening condition but could leave skin scars. The causes of acne are genetic, the use of oil-based makeup or cosmetics for the face, stress, hot and humid weather, menstrual cycles, and repeatedly touching or squeezing the pimples.
The red spots which are seen are actually the inflammation of the sebaceous or oil-producing glands in the skin.
Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) are the bacteria that start the infection. The resulting skin lesion could be blackheads, whiteheads, papules, pustules, nodules, or cysts.
Topical and/or oral medications are used for the treatment. Washing the face twice to remove the accumulated oil is beneficial.
Avoid popping the pimples as these could lead to bad scars. Choose cosmetics properly. Avoid sun exposure. Avoid stress. Try to keep dry and cool.
For refractory and severe cases, medical assistance is to be sought. Bad scars would also need surgical intervention or laser therapy.
