Problem Skin Myths

There are many misconceptions about problem skin among women and it’s important to separate fact from fiction. Here, we get to the bottom of a few of the most common myths about female problem skin.

Myth #1: Problem Skin is related to hygiene.

Blemishes are not caused by dirty skin. Although certain bacterium can exacerbate Blemishes, normal cleansers will not reduce this bacteria, and over-cleansing or scrubbing may actually make Blemishes worse, with the skin overreacting and producing more sebum to clog the pores. Clean skin is important, but, without the action of hormones, Blemishes will not happen in the first place.

Myth #2: Blemishes are related to diet.

Extensive studies have proven that diet and intake of fatty foods, like chocolate, or French fries, or fast food, do not cause Blemishes. Although Blemishes are directly related to excessive oil production in skin from hormones, it is not from the oils of fatty foods.

Myth #3: Blemishes affects teenagers only.

Problem Skin affects men and women of all ages – even newborns. Although, for some, Blemishes can become less frequent with age, for many, particularly women, the Blemish is a persistent skin problem that requires proper prevention and Anti-Blemish solutions.

Myth #4: Popping Spots will makes them go away faster.

Squeezing your skin prolongs the recovery time of blemishes and inflamed spots and can make things much worse. It can lead to deeper inflammation (redness and irritation), more wide spread infection and even worse, permanent scarring. Don’t squeeze your spots unless you understand how to prepare the skin and can perform the extractions without causing trauma to the skin.
