Acne Skin Care Myths
Acne can be both uncomfortable and embarrassing. When someone
repeatedly receives acne breakouts, they often wonder what they
can do to prevent them from happening again. Unfortunately, many
times they are misinformed about acne skin care. In fact, many
commonly accepted acne "facts" are nothing more than myths. It
is wise to inform yourself before making decisions about acne
skin care. The following are some acne skin care myths which any
medical doctor will debunk:
Myth #1: Acne treatments are universal, and what works for one
person will work for everyone.
The truth is, everyone's natural chemistry and skin are unique.
Furthermore, each person lives in a unique environment which
will have specific effects on their skin and acne. The truth is,
what works as an acne "fix" for one person may completely fail
for someone else. Each person should get personalized advice
from a dermatologist. Furthermore, they should be willing to
keep trying different things until they find a regimen that
works for them.
Myth #2: There is a quick fix for acne.
This is another myth which often proves to be completely false.
For people with very severe acne, getting rid of it can be
long-fought "war", not a quick battle. Even when medication is
very effective, it can take up to 6 to 8 weeks to get initial
results. To beat acne, it is necessary to be patient and "stick
with it", even when treatment doesn't seem to be helping.
Myth #3: You don't need a dermatologist's help to beat acne.
Actually, the dermatologist is exactly who you need to beat
acne! Some people believe that their own concocted remedies, or
over-the-counter treatments are enough to clear up their skin.
The fact is, you may need a personalized plan to actually clear
up your acne, and only a doctor is qualified enough to recommend
this safely. So do yourself a favor, and go see a doctor about
it! You'll be glad you did.
Of course, those are just a few of the facts (and uncovered
myths) about acne skin care. To get the full story, it is
advised that you see a dermatologist and get more personalized
recommendations. And of course, once you are prescribed a
specific acne regimen, remember to stick with it! Anything
worthwhile takes time.
