Acne usually begins in adolescence, when the hormonal changes start to take place.

A „boil‟ is a red, painful, raised area of the skin surrounded by swollen inflamed tissue, usually the result of bacteria (especially staphylococcus variety) that invade through a microscopic break in the skin and infect a blocked sweat gland or hair follicle.

These can occur in any part of the body and are of different types, e.g., ischaemic ulcers, venous ulcer, neurogenic ulcer, tropical ulcer, malignant ulcer, tubercular ulcer, syphilitic ulcer, soft chancre, infective ulcer, etc.
If you are growing in your eyebrows, and need to fill in sparse, or thin brows, keep the eyeliner pencils away from the brows. Why? The wax in regular eyeliner pencils can make eyebrows look too dark, heavy and easily smears in warm weather. Eyeliner pencils are made to glide on, while specially made brow pencils are a bit stiffer, and harder in its application, so you get a longer lasting look.
