Myths of acne

Do you use toothpaste to calm down a zit that just popped up on your face? Well, don’t! It’s just a myth that toothpaste can help reduce a pimple. There is a thin line between what a myth is and what actually the reason is. So, to help you figure this out, here are common myths about acne and pimple:

Myth 1: Smoking causes acne

Smoking is a filthy habit but they don’t cause acne breakouts or spreading. But smoking does worsen the skin regeneration process of your skin and the healing process of the acne becomes too slow. Quitting smoking will help oxygen to flow through the skin and it will breathe and look fresher.

Myth 2: Acne just happens to teenagers

It’s a common myth that acne is just a teen problem due to hormonal build up. But actually adult women and even men tend to get pimples and sometimes they are more prone to breaking out. The reason for this is genetics. Also, women in their adult life face a lot of hormonal imbalance that triggers these breakouts.

Myth 3: Pimples can form overnight

You went to bed with a pimple-free face.But you wake up with a scary looking red pimple the next morning and you think it formed overnight. Well, not exactly. Just like acne takes time to go away, it takes time to form too. It’s a long process in which the pores of the skins get clogged and bacteria are formed. These bacteria inflame our skin and we get a zit. Nothing happens overnight, it’s all a gradual process.

Myth 4: Some products can make acne go away forever

Sadly, it is not true. Some products like acne treatment cream or natural remedies help them and blemishes to fade and go away but these are not permanent. At some point in your time, you will get acne back.

Myth 5: If you do it in the right way, it’s safe to pop up a pimple

We all got this suggestion once in our life. Well, popping in any way will only worsen the problem. Popping up a pimple means that the bacteria will spread to other parts of the skin and will also leave a mark. Also, the healing process of that zit will be very slow.
