Common Misconceptions About Acne (Pimples)

Published

on

  There are plenty of misconceptions out there regarding acne causes and development. Understanding acne means sorting through fact and fiction.

Many of the beliefs we hold about the causes of acne are actually myths. Let’s take a look and uncover the truth about what really causes acne and what doesn’t.
Acne [Pimples] is a disorder of the pilosebaceous unit, or what we commonly call the hair follicle or pore.

Excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria become trapped within the follicle, creating an impaction. If the follicle wall ruptures, inflammation occurs and a pimple is created. 

1) Diet causes acne
Contrary to popular believe, no proof has been found that acne is caused by a diet. Chocolate causing acne is the most common misconception there is about acne. Several scientific studies have been performed on this subject, but none of them could confirm this theory. Other food like sugar oil, milk and seafood are not known to cause acne. 
2) Popping pimples helps.
Popping pimples will not help you to get rid of them. They might go away for a few hours, but will always come back worse. If you pop a pimple you are opening the wound so bacteria and dirt can get in to cause redness and infections. 
3) Washing your face helps fights acne.
Washing your face will get your face clean of dirt, but it will also dry out and irritate your skin. So wash your face at most twice a day with a gentle soap and do not rub it clean or dry to avoid irritating the skin.
 4) Only teenagers have acne.
Most teenagers have acne and in most cases these problems will clear up when they reach their 20s, but some people still have acne problems when they are 30 or 40.
 5) The sun will clear your acne.
The sun might help clear your acne on the short term, because it will dry the skin. But it is not a good remedy for acne on the long run. Usually your acne will come back after a while and probably will be worse. Best way is to protect your skin by using sunscreen.
 6) Makeup gets you acne.
Choose makeup that is non-acnegenic or non-comedogenic, so they won’t clog your pores. For people with severe acne, best is not to use makeup at all. If you’re not sure about what cosmetics to use consult your dermatologist or doctor.
 7) You can stop medication ones your acne is cleared.
Don’t stop your medication without consulting your doctor or dermatologist. If you stop your medication to soon, your acne might come back.

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
