For several years I struggled with acne it was around the ago of seventeen and twenty However I wished to get more information about acne myths. For example is it really true that you can get acne from eating a bar of chocolate each day? Can I help acne with washing my skin more? Stress causes acne?
And I’m sure you find this the funniest one. You can get ride of acne by having sex or masturbating. Bullshit or not? You will find the answers to your question here in these article.
7 Acne myths and the truth about them.
Myth 1: Will I get acne by eating chocolate and fat food?
Eating chocolate and fat foot can make you fat, very fat and it’s not healthy at all.
But acne is not caused by eating chocolate, fat food or sugar.
Research and studies found out that acne is not primarily linked to these products
Myth 2: Is washing your face a good way to prevent acne?
You need to wash your face at least twice a day for medical reasons.
Acne is not caused by poor hygiene. It may surprise you but don’t believe it.
In fact washing your face to often can make your acne worse?
I would recommend to wash your face twice a day in the morning in the evening, not more.
Don’t forget to past dry it and to use a appropriate acne treatment?
Myth 3: Acne is only something for teenagers.
Yes it’s true most people who have or start having acne are in their early teens.
But the truth is anyone can get acne. Also your genes plays a roll probably you mother and father or grandparents had acne it’s a change you will get it too. Even babies can get acne.
Myth 4: Does stress causes acne?
This is a common mistake if you have stress there is a chance you will get Acne urticata.
Acne urticata is a form of eczema so not really acne in the real meaning of the word.
However this myth is true you can get acne or more acne if you have stress.
Stress is a part of the modern human life so it’s almost impossible to ban it from your life.
Try to get a healthy life, a balanced diet and a good night’s rest. And be careful with drugs to prevent stress they can consider acne as well.
Myth 5: Can sex and masturbation lead to acne?
I think this myth is from the same people who said you can become deaf by having sex or masturbating. If you reach puberty your body experiences hormonal changes. True these changes you can get acne but it’s not related to your sexual activity.
Myth 6: Squeezing out my pimples is a good idea?
Don’t do it, squeezing out the pimple can damage the cells under your skin.
The cells under your pimples can be inflamed or even worse leave a permanent scar.
Myth 7: Where can I get acne? Is it only on my face?
As you can see not everything they tell you about acne is true.
I hope this acne myth article gave you an answer of your most burning questions about it.
