Myths About Acne Treatment

By:   |   Jul 08, 2018   |   Views: 15   |   Comments: 0

There are many myths about acne treatment many people think.  However, these myths can do you more harm than good if you have acne and you are listening to these things.  

The first myth about acne treatment is that the way you are eating is the reason your face looks so bad.  If you have acne, you can eat as healthy as possible and it is not going to make a difference how your skin looks.  Specific foods or drinks in your diet could contribute mildly but would never be the cause of acne.  Eating a healthy diet is important for your health and healthy skin but it will not cure or serve as a sufficient acne treatment.

It is common for some people to think that acne is a direct result of a person having poor hygiene.  You could shower three times a day and scrub your face nonstop.  That is not going to rid a person of acne.  Acne is caused because the skin cells produce more oil than they should due to a hormonal imbalance or other reasons.  There are many things that cause acne and they do not include hygiene.  Keep in mind that hygiene is not a direct cause but it can help facilitate pimples being created if you do not wash your face or skin.

Another myth about acne treatment is that you should not pop your pimples.  This myth is entirely wrong because a pimple is full of infection and when you can see the infection from under the skin you should lightly squeeze the infectious bacteria out of the pore.  This is because when skin cells and pores are infected with bacteria and form a pimple in acne, the acne spreads because the infection under your skin spreads.  It is best to rid your face of the bacteria as much as possible.  Keep in mind that when you pop a pimple it is important to carefully squeeze it and don't use your fingernails.  Scarring occurs when you dig into the skin and make the pimple bleed.  Also, many pimples produce blood after you get the infection out.  This doesn't mean you are scarring your face.  

There are many myths people say about acne and they are very insistent.  Everyone wants to give advice about acne but only you know how bad it is.  Don't pay attention to people telling you that your acne is caused because of the way you eat or you don't wash your face enough.  These can be contributing factors but are not the cause.  Also, if you have a pimple, pop it.  Squeezing the infection out helps prevent spreading.
