Pimple

(En español: Granos)

Say: pim-pul

Your skin has many tiny holes called pores. When you go through puberty, your skin makes a lot of extra oil that might clog up those pores. Too much oil may combine with dead skin and bacteria to create a pimple. But don't worry because everyone gets pimples. And once you're past puberty, there's plenty of smooth skin ahead!
