Zits


 Zits:  Zits appear on the skin mainly because of an infection or an inflammation in the sebaceous glands. At times you may notice a single bump or zit. In most cases zits appear in a group or in clusters. You may experience an outbreak of zits. Studies indicate that zits are a lot more common in teenagers and young adults as compared to most others.

In most cases zits are not a serious problem as they never really cause any complications or scars. Moreover there are many ways in which zits can be prevented. You can do so by making a few simple dietary or lifestyle changes and by following a skincare routine. Zits mainly occur in those parts of the body, where the number of functional sweat glands is higher. This usually includes your neck, back, chest and shoulders.
