Real Facts Behind The Myths Related To Acne

When you suffer from acne there are many comments that come from people in your surroundings, which include statements like “scrub the face properly everyday and the acne will vanish” or “this has happened only because eating greasy food”. These are nothing but misconceptions and myths that have been associated with acne over the last few centuries.

Fortunately most of these myths have been proven wrong by the latest researches and findings by medical experts. Let us take a detailed look on the myths and the real facts against the myths to understand what to be followed and what not to be followed in the case an acne breakout happens.

This Is A Teenage Problem

The first myth that has been broken now is that acne is a skin problem that happens only to the teenagers during the puberty phase. While this is a fact that during the puberty phases due to hormonal changes pimples do happen for teenagers but that does not mean that the disorder is reserved only for people below 20yrs of age. There are many people between the age of 20 years and 45 years who suffer from mild as well severe acne; hence it would be a wrong thing to claim that acne is a teenage problem.

Dirty Faces Suffer More From Acne

Whenever the kid would come back from the playground he would get the command to wash his face properly or acne breakouts will come up due to the dirt that is there on the face. While washing the face and getting rid of the dirt is a good and hygienic habit that however has just got no connection with the formation of acne. What many people in the earlier days were not aware is that acne formation happens deep inside the skin at the hair follicle level, and the dirt at the epidermal level of the skin has no role to play.

Popping The Pimple Will Cure The Problem

It is a common belief that if your puncture the bump, the acne will get cured easily. This belief however is absolutely wrong and nothing but a myth. Popping the pimple will only ensure that the bacteria is spread across the area, which not only will have the threat to spread the acne breakout, but will also cause permanent scarring of the area. This is a myth which is now being understood by most people and they prefer not to try this out, no matter how strong the recommendation may be.

Scrub The Face As Hard As You Can

People who believe that acne is caused by the dirt that gets accumulated on the face will also advise you scrub the face properly to get rid of the dirt and thereby the skin disorder. In case you prefer to go by their advice, all you would be doing is aggravate the condition even more and cause other skin threats. You may try to use cleansers that contain salicylic acid and other sulfur compounds along with benzyl peroxide to keep the skin clean, but that does not mean that by doing this you will find a cure to the acne. Hard scrubbing of the already irritated skin will enhance the inflammation of the follicles let the band will worsen the condition of the breakout.

No Medications Or Treatment Is Required For Acne

Many parents would love to believe that as acne is a teenage syndrome, it will automatically go away one day and no specific medication or treatment would be required to cure the same. The fact here is that if it is mild acne, possibly leaving it on its own may let the blemishes go away, however if it is not mild acne, leaving it unattended may actually worsen the condition. Even if you do not consult a dermatologist, at least you need to apply some over the counter topical ointments that will help in controlling the bacteria from spreading itself further and causing more breakouts on the face and other parts of the body.

What You Eat Is Irrelevant

If this would have been a reality, it would have been so nice a thing, but unfortunately this is a myth. Medical examinations have proven that consumption of dairy products during the days of acne breakout or even without that causes skin problems and slows down the recovery process. You may want to pay a visit to the nutritionist and check with him if he would recommend a lot of dairy products in your daily diet chart.

Sweat The Germs Out

People who believe that dirt is the root cause behind formation of acne, would also believe very firmly that if you have to get rid of the acne breakouts, you have to spend good time in the sauna bath so that you sweat out all the germs and get cleaner skin pores. This however has been tested and proved in recent times that the warm and moist condition actually enhances the growth of the bacteria that causes acne. This can actually lead to serious concerns related to the skin as it would have full potential to worsen the situation of the acne breakout.

Use Toothpaste To Cure Acne

An urban myth is to apply toothpaste on the affected area and that will help in reducing the formation of the acne. Toothpaste to the contrary would actually cause a lot more damage to the acne condition as it contains sodium lauryl sulfate which is a known chemical that clogs the pore of the skin thereby enhancing the possibilities of even more serious acne breakouts. The fact is that all the toothpaste can do is dry out existing lesions but that does not mean that it will avoid the formation of the acne.

It could prove so very dangerous to try out such recommended ‘best practices’ when you are trying to find a cure for your acne breakouts. It is hence always safe and recommended that before you try any of such best practices, discuss the same with the dermatologist and take his buy in so that you do not cause more damage to the already irritated skin of your face or body.
