Myth And Facts About Acne
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Acne is a very common skin problem and in fact you or your friends would have experienced it. There have been many sayings going around about acne and which are the real facts or myths? Here I am going to dispel the myths and reveal the facts.

Myth: Eating Chocolates Will Cause Acne

No food has proven to cause acne. Chocolate and acne have always been linked together as one cause of acne. The fact is by eating chocolate itself will not cause an acne breakout. The fact is it will be possible to have an acne breakout when you have a bad diet. For instance, if you cannot balance your diet with healthy food, but to have an unhealthy diet with high in fat, sugar, oil and carbohydrate all the time, you will not have enough nutrients for your body and that can possibly cause acne.

Myth: Sun tanning Will Help To Heal Acne Faster

The fact is when you expose your skin directly under the sun with no UV or SPF protection, you are actually causing more freckles and pigmentation to form on your skin. Over exposure to the sun can also cause skin cancer.

Myth: Wash your skin hard whenever you start to feel oily

Excessive washing to your face will strip away the natural oil and protection to your skin. You will irritate the skin by drying and making acne worse. Wash it gently twice a day and if you feel your skin oily after a while, splash with water instead of washing with cleanser.

Myth: Squeezing pimples can heal faster

Squeezing pimples will only leave ugly scars and pitholes on your face. In fact, when you squeeze your pimples, you are making it worse by pushing the bacteria and germs deeper into your skin, more pimples can spread in this case. Avoid touching your face with hands as your hands could have picked up germs. Apply acne gel and let the pimples heal on its own than forcing pressure.

Myth: You will not experience acne after 30 years old

It is more common for teenagers to experience acne when they are going through their puberty stage. However, many people still can experience acne in their adulthood, sometimes this is due to pregnancy, medication,etc. It is true that the breakout will get lesser when you reach a certain age, but it does not that mean it is not possible for an adult to get acne. So, this saying is actually a myth.

Avoid popping your pimples on your face, you can try wrapping an ice cube with a tissue and rest it gently on the acne area. This is a quick fix to calm down red and angry zits. In order to get rid of spots on your face, a right acne treatment is what you really need instead of believing in those myths around.
