Myths About Acne Treatment
Many of the most common myths regarding acne treatment put a lot of needless blame on the sufferer without offering much of a real solution.
For example, many accuse chocolate, and greasy and fried foods of causing acne. But there is no scientific link between these or any other food to the presence of acne.
People who suffer from acne are also sometimes accused of having poor hygiene as if that's to blame for their acne. But simple soap and water alone cannot keep your skin clear.
Lastly, something you may hear a lot is that acne cannot be treated and that the best thing to do is to simply allow it to improve on its own. While it sometimes can, this is not the best advice for everyone, acne is very much a treatable condition. Because not all treatments work the same for everyone and because treating acne is itself a slow process, many just give up. But if your goal is clear skin, you should not.
