head wear and even jewelry. Maybe you’re taking the lax look to a whole new level, and try to wear sweatpants to work? Don’t fall behind, read this week’s fantastic roundup!
For the third time, IFB has featured my post: The Ultimate Acne Face Chart and I have been bursting to share with you this interesting and top-notch link roundup from the best bloggers in the IFB community.

The Ultimate Acne Face Chart


Acne, I know, is never an interesting topic. Let alone the behavior of its growth. Acne is a skin condition that causes pimples or zits, including both black and white heads. But we'll focus more on zits, these are the product of nasty oil and dead skin cells clogging up our pores; moreover a lump of dirt and a reflection of the unhealthy general hygiene practices - inside and out. And as far as I'm concerned, all we ever want to understand about zits is how to get rid of them. Right?

But to win the race isn't possible without learning the map. Likewise, to utterly understand pimple's cure isn't possible without getting a grasp of the factors that contribute to its growth, most especially if they diverge from our diet to personal hygiene practices. No one wants to be constantly stuck on the self-same pimple fighting don'ts that clearly aren't beneficial.

Now, let me ask you. Have you ever wondered why do pimples grow on different area of your face? Well, if you have and still do, I'm definitely with you - except that I don't anymore. Let me enlighten you with some reasons why and how to win your not-so-sober battle with acne!
