Do You Make These Mistakes When Treating Acne?


Visitors: 212

Acne is the most distressing skin problem one can go through. It is estimated that 90% of men and women have dealt with acne at some time in their lives. Acne, unlike other skin problems affect people much more deeply. Part of the problems lies in wrong beliefs on what causes pimples and how to treat it. This article will highlight some of these mistakes made in dealing with acne.

Mistake #1: Thinking it's just a phase.

Most People live through waves of acne with the mistaken belief that getting zits is just a phase they are going through. If left untreated, acne can stay till your late 20s and early 30s. That is not as bad as the risk of having those acne become acne scars - permanent acne that could take a decade to go away.

Mistake #2: Following Popular Folklore Advice

In our society, there is no shortage of advice. Acne is no different. Following advice such as “don't eat pizza", “Wash your face many times", “avoid oily food" are just plain useless and have no truth in them having helped clear acne.

Mistake #3: Expecting acne to disappear overnight

Recovery from acne breakouts take time. Dermatologists themselves cannot tell how long it will take to treat acne in anyone. It doesn't matter what the proactiv advertisement said, acne treatments take time. You must be patient and follow a treatment plan religiously for a couple of weeks.

Mistake #4: Not Addressing The Emotional Effects Of Acne

It's a fact. acne makes you feel distressed and lost. It completely changes your personality. Many people live with a lowered self esteem and because of that deny themselves relationships and career opportunities. The most worrying aspect of acne is the emotional damage remains long after acne breakouts have stopped.

Mistake #5: Eating Acne Promoting Food

Another common misunderstanding is that acne is not affected by what you eat. On the contrary, recent scientific research have revealed a relationship between acne breakouts and diet. No it is not junk food or oily food. You would be pleased to know that, most junk food items or oily food DON'T fall under the category of food items that induce acne!

That brings us to another question: Is it possible to get rid of acne just by eating right ? The scientific study I mentioned previously also discovered the tweaks to make to your diet to reduce acne breakouts by up to 90%. Is your current diet causing pimples?
