5 myths about acne

Postby sjlemon » Mon, 01 Oct 2007 12:06 am


1. Stress causes acne
Stress has a minimal influence on a persons ability to develop acne through stress. Stress doesn't cause acne, but it can influence the re-occurrence of acne as stress levels increase the body's creation of a substance called cortisol.
Cortisol causes the sebaceous glands in the skin to produce increased amounts of sebum oil which ultimately blocks the pores.

2. Acne is contagious
No one can "catch" acne; it is non-communicable.

3.You'll outgrow acne, so just leave it along and it will heal itself.
Acne strikes all ages and is treatable, but shouldn't be left alone to worsen. (It should be treated so it doesn't cause scarring)

4. Being out in the sun helps acne
The sun may appear to help clear up blemishes and redden the skin, thus lessening the overall effect. However, rays from the sun cause skin damage and irritate and worsen existing acne problems clogging more pores as skin cells dry up and slough off quicker than normal. So use caution (and sunscreen).

5. Sweating helps clean out your hair follicle areas
Strenuous activity can temporarily increase your body's oil production which can worsen acne problem areas, causing recurrence or intensification.
