Dirty Skin -- The Biggest Acne Myth Ever

Dirty Skin Does Not Cause Acne

I want to start this blog off my debunking the biggest acne myth on the face of the earth -- dirty skin is not the reason for acne! I cannot even begin to tell you how many people assume that just because someone has acne, they don’t take care of their skin. This is just NOT true. A person can wash their skin twenty times a day, and you know what it’s going to do? It’s going to make their acne worse! So let’s start off by explaining that acne is not a hygienic issue.

Acne Isn’t Only Skin Deep

Yes, clogged pores can cause blemishes. However, acne isn’t just a blemish here and there from a clogged pore or two. Acne is a condition that starts from within our bodies, not from the outside.

You also need to understand that dirt isn’t the only thing that can cause pores. Our bodies produce oil and that oil can clog pores too. Just because someone’s body is producing too much oil doesn’t mean they have hygienic issues.

The Other Side Of The Coin

Okay, now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, let me also say that skin care does play an important role in fighting acne. If you have problem skin, you do need to care for it properly. This means a good skin care regimen.

Myth One Debunked

So now you know the most common acne myth and you now know it’s hogwash. This is just the beginning. You’re going to be shocked when you find out all of the truths regarding acne.
