[Giveaway] Things you should know about Acne/Pimple by Avène Cleanance

I believe acne or pimples are every girl's concern because it gets pretty annoying to have a reddish spot sticking out on your face as you go out to meet your friends or go on a date. When there is a pimple on my face, sometimes I just can't help it by putting two of my index fingers together and try to squeeze it, forcing the white-ish liquid to break out. After that I would have a sense of satisfaction believing that I have conquer the pimple.

However, little did we know that squeezing the pimple doesn't help much but instead would worsen your skin condition. All thanks to the Avène Cleanance Workshop, I have had a better insight of the growth, properties of acne, pimple on our skin. Do scroll down to find out more and I also have a giveaway for you guys...

Things You Should Know About Acne/Pimple

#1 Do Not Squeeze the Acne/Pimple

First thing when you have an acne or pimple growing on your face, DO NOT try to squeeze it. This is because by squeezing the pimple, it will burst and the white-ish liquid will spread all over the surface of your face if you didn't clean up properly, and eventually creating more pimples around that area. 

#2 Acne Occur Due to the Block Sebaceous Duct

The formation of acne started off with the increase of sebum production on our skin surface, then the block of sebaceous duct and eventually followed by the presence of bacteria that will cause inflammation aka the reddish acne on skin. So it's important for us to keep our skin hydrated to reduce the over secretion of sebum that will block the sebaceous duct. Below is a diagram for you to get a better grip of what the sebaceous duct is all about.

#3 Acne Occur Due to the Male Hormones

Yup it's because of the Male Hormones! Everyone will have male and female hormones in their body but when the male and female hormones are imbalance, like when male hormones are higher than the usual amount, then the acne will start growing. That's why most men will have severe issue with acne and pimples while women will only have it occasionally.

Anyways, it's always Prevention Is Better Cure. So take some preventive steps like using suitable skincare products to target the growth of acne. In Avène, they have Cleanance Oily & Blemished Skin Series which is designed specially to cater for Shiny skin, open pores, comedones and acne.

Tho I don't have severe acne but I do fancy the Cleanance K Cream-gel in the Avène Oily & Blemished Skin Series. I have been using it for two weeks and my oil secretion on my Tzone has reduced dramatically. I need not to touch up my make up to cover up my shiny Tzone as often as I do. Besides it eliminated not all but most of the blackheads on my nose too.

Hence in order to share my wonderful journey in using Avène products, I am giving away a set of the
