Acne Truths vs Myths
Learn the real deal about acne and skincare.
Here we break down common myths concerning acne- what actually causes breakouts, what to avoid to prevent it from getting worse, and how to repair and heal your skin.
Acne is caused by poor hygiene.
Fluctuating hormones, medications, stress, and genetics are the most common causes. Elevated hormones (androgen) stimulate the sebaceous glands to produce greater amounts of sebum. Many medications can stimulate sebaceous production.
It needs to be treated to control it. Depending on severity, resolution takes time and treatments are going to be unique to the individual. Professional treatments take 6-8 weeks to achieve healthier skin with fewer breakouts. Severe acne is a longer journey.
You should let acne run its course.
The sun helps my acne.
Sun exposure can make acne worse in some people. It can slow or dry out the active breakout, which then traps the oil, creating more breakout and a vicious cycle. Exposure and medicated creams can also create photosensitivity and hyperpigmentation.
When you pick an acne lesion, it adds life to it. If left alone they are less likely to turn cystic and leave a scar. In a treatment, the professional prepares your skin to extract properly, leaving less damage behind.
Picking and popping acne makes it go away faster.
Acne is oily skin type.
Skin of any age or type can have acne. Many acne treatments dehydrate the skin with harsh ingredients which produces more oil which then causes more breakouts.
