Acne cosmetica

The term acne cosmetica refers to acne caused by or aggravated by cosmetics. The mechanism was presumably a chemically induced plugging of the pilosebaceous orifice. This became a significant problem for dermatologists in the 1970s and 1980s, but with the improved formulations produced by cosmetic chemists , a diagnosis of acne cosmetica has become relatively rare daily dermatological practice.

We teens have all experienced some sort of acne problem. I have learned that by rubbing a potato's natural juice on the affected area of acne, it will reduce the redness on the face.

What is Sussle?

Sussle is the first, open visual encyclopedia. Anyone can use it.

What's a visual encylopedia?

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
  2. Help others learn in a fun way.
  3. Make someone else interested in this topic laugh or say wow!
  4. Become internet-famous as people like and share your post.
  5. It's super easy, so it won't take more than a minute.
