7 Acne Myths You Need to Stop Believing

Smoking facilitates the spreading of acne

Many people think that smoking causes acne. Undoubtedly, tobacco use is a bad habit, but it doesn’t evoke acne spreading.

Smoking worsens skin regeneration, and acne heals more slowly.

If you quit smoking, you will see that you look better: the oxygen flow to the skin will increase, and the recovery process will go faster.

 

Decorative cosmetics cause acne

Not all cosmetics are bad for the skin. Use products that are marked as noncomedogenic as they are produced specially for problem skin. Avoid cosmetics containing alcohols and oils. Alcohols dry the skin and cause skin irritation, which, in turn, causes acne to spread. Oils make the skin greasy and clog the pores.

Remember that cosmetics should contain:

Aloe

Retinols

Peptide 10.

These components improve acne healing as they stimulate collagen production.

 

A suntan helps to get rid of acne

UV rays stimulate the work of the sebaceous glands, causing the emergence of new acne. That’s why a tan is forbidden if you have acne. Use a sunscreen for problem skin — it will protect the skin from sunrays and acne spreading.

 

 

Stress causes acne

New pimples are not a result of stress. But if you already have acne, stress can worsen the situation: the wound and post-acne healing slows down.

 

If you wash your face more often, acne will go away

Acne, as well as blackheads, is caused by the clogging of pores with an excess of sebum. That’s why you may wash your face as many times as you want, but the acne will not be reduced. Thorough face washing will cause further irritation: sponges and facial brushes traumatize the skin and don’t clean it. It’s also a reason not to wipe your face with a towel. Just pat your face dry with a towel or a napkin.

Sulfate-containing (SLS, SLES) soaps and cleansers over dry the skin.
