This mole in the back is located on the waist fold where it crosses a vertical fold.

This pimple has formed in a skin chimney created by the fold crossing.

The main types of skin defects

Your body treats fold crossings like injuries.

Open and closed fold crossing chimneys

Open and closed chimneys

Your skin closes the opening of some fold crossings with epidermis cells as part of its wound healing process.

Holes, dents and cavities

Holes and cavities in the skin

Notice how the holes follow the path of underlying folds.

Bumps and lumps in the skin

Bump in the skin

Bumps and lumps in your skin aren't always visible, but you can find them easily with your super-sensitive fingertips.

Dark or pale spots on the skin

Brown spot on the skin

Visible fold crossing
caused by the concentration of skin pigments (melanin) in one location.

How to groom away skin deformations

The only way to get rid of skin defects naturally is to crush them.

Warning
Grooming problematic cutaneous structures has not been fully tested at this point.
Go slowly, be cautious, and use your best judgment.
If the skin reacts; stop grooming the area until it heals and revise your technique.

Revised acne theory

ACNE INSIDE A SKIN FOLD

Fold crossing

The hollow gap between the two flaps of skin becomes a sealed container where wastes accumulate.

Fold crossings explain symmetrical acne locations

Acne and trapped bodily wastes

Fold crossings form skin caverns that store wastes

Sebum mines

Open fold crossing chimneys evacuate their wastes
