A single pimple on the face and we start blaming the food, hormonal imbalance, make-ups and obviously pollution. But what if everyday things that you use are responsible for pimples on the face, back and even private parts? Here are few shocking things that can cause acne.
Helmet: Wearing helmet creates excessive humidity which can lead to clogging of skin pores on the face, increasing the risk of acne and pimples.
Mobile/Phone receiver: As the mobile phone or receiver carries a lot of germs, it is very likely that pressure due to a phone receiver on the skin can lead to localised acne.
Headband: Sweating can worsen acne in some people. If you are wearing a headband that is too tight it causes sweating to be trapped under clothing leading to clogging of pores and acne.
Bra strap: Pressure due to bra strap and accumulation of sweat at the point of contact of bra strap with skin can lead to acne, especially on the back and shoulder region.
Tight clothes (undergarments): Tight clothing such as jeans or undergarments can lead to localized acne that develops at the point of skin contact. This is the reason you can get acne even in the vagina and on the penis.
