You Thought You Knew Everything About Acne? You Thought Wrong

Jul 22, 2008
One of the most troubling things a teenager has to contend with is Acne. High school pressures are bad enough, but now there are the painful, erupting pimples on their back, neck and faces. Acne can lead to being cast out and teased and can affect them well into adulthood.

Numerous myths have been exposed about acne, but still people are ignorant about them.

Myth number one: Greasy and fatty foods cause acne. This is completely untrue, but one used the most. Chocolate has also been named a villain, also not true. You can have a breakout if you're allergic to these, but why would you be eating them then?

The second most commonly used myth is that if you don't have good facial hygiene it causes acne. Acne is not cause by a lack of facial hygiene. It is advisable to have good cleansing habits, but acne is cause by bacteria under the skin, not on top. The best way to treat acne is to start on the inside.

3rd is that stress causes acne. This has ever only happened on rare instances. Stress can cause outbreaked on those who are suseptable to acne outbreaks, but the average person is not normally affected. Everyday stress in teens or adults do not cause acne.

The fourth myth is that acne should be left untreated, it will go away naturally. Acne issues are more than just cosmetic, but on the surface it may seem true. If acne is left without any treatment, it can leave you with serious scars on your face, which will affect you forever.

This can lead to real self-esteem and confidence issues. Think about some actors or other celebrities with acne scarring. It's not difficult to bring them to mind and in fact, that's probably the first thing you noticed when you first saw them or the first thing you remember about them when you recall their face.

Lastly, the myth that you cannot do anything about acne. Children suffering from acne would go untreated, because for years their parents were under the impression that it was a part of puberty and that they had to go through it. Little did they know that it could have long term effects. Luckily today, there are many acne products that are being marketed that have proved to work effectively.
