"Acne and Skin Problem Myths Debunked"
By : Dennis Becker
Isn't skin a wonderful thing to have?
An obvious benefit of skin is that it protects our bodies' internal organs from harmful elements like dirt,
insects, bites, toxic chemicals, nasty weather etc. It certainly is more attractive than what is underneath.
When skin is healthy, it's nice to look at. However, when it's diseased it can affect you physically and more
painfully can cause stress and social problems.
Like the common cold, acne and similar skin diseases can be treated and covered up, but cannot really be cured. The
best treatment is prevention and knowledge about what makes your skin happy so that you can avoid skin care enemies
and breakout triggers.
The real cause of acne can vary from individual to individual, but some factors can be stated with relative
1. Acne occurs when pores or hair follicles become blocked or clogged.
2. There are 4 types of acne manifestations: whiteheads, blackheads, pimples and nodules.

Some acne myths include "you'll outgrow it, so leave it alone", "being out in the sun helps acne", "acne problems
are directly or indirectly proportionate to sexual activity", "acne visits dirty people", "acne is contagious" -
and too many more to list in this short article.
The sad thing is that belief in the myths can be devastating in that proper treatment is avoided and lifestyle
changes that don't need to be made can take away pleasure unnecessarily.
For example, at one point in my life I truly believed that I was allergic to chocolate and that it caused my
breakouts. Whenever I would succumb to the temptation and have "just a little" I would stress out waiting for the
red spots - and sure enough, they would appear.
After several years and much experimentation, I learned I had no allergy. The stress was a trigger for me and a new
over the counter face scrub has kept me in the clear ever since.
Knowing what triggers your breakouts can be the difference between constant battles and healthy skin. The Internet
is a wonderful place to get the information you need. So stop stressing out and learn what it takes to put your
best face forward.
