Acne Myth and Fact
MYTH FACT
All pimples are same just at various stages of maturity.  There are six different types of acne, and some are tougher to treat than others. Common whiteheads and blackheads, caused by blocked pores, generally go away with topical products. More difficult to treat: papules (raised, solid bumps) and pustules (papules with pus in them). Nodules and cysts, which form deep in the skin, can really hurt and are the most difficult to treat. Visit a dermatologist near you for treatment advice.
You have to wash your face often to get rid of acne. Zits do not respond well to excessive cleansing. In fact, washing face often aggravates skin, which can cause leading to more pimples. Acne isn’t usually caused by a dirty face. The biological activity that leads to acne actually begins beneath the skin. Scrubbing on the surface does little. Despite their brazen look, acne has to be treated gently.
Applying toothpaste to acne dries it up fast Toothpaste is best left to clean and whiten teeth. The feeling of drying out skin when toothpaste is applied does not have any scientific support. Dermatologists do not recommend this regimen even though this option has been exercised in some countries.
Acne is caused by unclean skin Acne is caused by bacteria working themselves up on oily clogged pores. It is skin deep and cleansing is at the surface. The size and activity of the oil-producing gland is affected by hormone levels. Under certain circumstances the gland increases in size and produces more oil. Skin cells start to become "sticky" trapping pores. Bacteria known as P. acnes multiply and these factors result in spots. The treatment should be targeted at the source – below the surface of the skin.
Acne is a skin condition and not due to life style. "There is some evidence that consumption of dairy and foods with a high GI-index can aggravate acne so I suggest my clients limit these and for them to lead a healthy lifestyle. Anecdotally, stress can aggravate many skin diseases, including acne, so finding methods of reducing this e.g. through exercise or meditation may indirectly have some benefit."
Acne skin needs no moisturizing since skin is oily. "Moisturising the skin maintains the integrity of barrier function and is vital for good skin health. Even oily skin needs moisturising as excess oils. Skin should be washed– morning and evening with a cleanser specially formulated for acne containing salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. After cleansing, gel-based moisturiser that is "non-comedogenic" as this prevents the formation of blackheads. Using a gel based sun screen will not only moisturize but will also protect the skin from aging.
