Struggling to cope with the acne on your skin? Well, you need to face it you are not being told the real truth about getting clear skin and that is why you continue to suffer from your problem day in and day out. Here are the biggest acne myths exposed so you can finally get on the right path to clear skin.
1. Washing your face more than twice a day will lead to clear skin faster. This is a myth no matter how much you believe it because this amount of washing will dry out your skin causing more problems. Excessively dry skin will make your body produce more surface oils which once get stuck in the pores of your skin will produce more breakouts. If you want to get clear skin you should only be washing your face twice daily once at night and once in the morning.
2. Sunlight is good for your skin so the more the better. As you already know acne is very easily irritated and the sun’s harsh rays are more than enough to cause problems. If you are in the sun for a long period you should use an oil-free sunscreen so your acne is protected but your skin can still get the benefits found in the sun’s rays.
3. Diet is very important to acne so do not eat chocolate. Science has not yet proved a connection between chocolate and acne how ever they have found a link in dairy products and bananas. These foods contain specific amino acids in them that can trigger the release of sebum which causes breakouts on your skin so it is best to limit these foods if possible.
