And the bitter reality is that you cannot get rid of them overnight by applying some magical concoction. There might be hundreds of treatments, home remedies and expensive medication to get rid of them, but nothing can help you until you work on the root of the problem.

Androgens hormones: Increased androgens in boys and girls during puberty make the skin’s oil glands larger, which increases the creation of sebum. This causes a pimple.
