If you do not know what you're fighting against, do not know to choose right, or make the right decisions.
Before delving into the issue of the formation of acne, let's smash some myths. If you continue to hold these three myths, and acting according to them - not only do not help your skin heal, but you may make some other skin problems.
Myths About Acne Treatment
The first myth is the belief that you can dry wound. Water is the only thing that can "dry up". And a wound is not connected with being wet: the wound is not watery. His content is oily. However, skin cells - they also contain water, and when you dehydrate the skin you actually dehydrate the water in skin cells. Drying the skin hits the intracellular material (forms a boundary protects the skin), which can increase the presence of bacteria in the pores and cause rough skin texture, and feel tight and dry. None of that stops the acne breakouts. They are only able to add more irritation and frustration and disappointment for the treatment of wounds. What's true is, he breakouts can worsen due to excess fat production, and have to try, within our war wounds, reduce fat production and / or absorb it. Oil-absorbing skin or pores is significantly different process drying the skin.
The second myth is pimples are caused by leather-clean. Unfortunately, the mistaken belief that makes cleaning excessive skin with soap and detergents difficult. This cleaning only increases the risk of irritation and dryness, and not driven at all pimples. Not only that, the elements of soap solid, solid-state guards that can clog pores and cause pimples fact. the truth is gentle cleansing and care through fragile materials, do not pat dry and irritate - are critical in our efforts to fight acne outbreaks.
The third myth is that you can treat pimples in point. Unfortunately, many products are based on this idea.

For most types of pimples (except for those created quickly by allergic reactions to cosmetics or other material), while the wound looks on the skin, he would have been at least three weeks in the process of formation. The truth is that it takes time to create a porous wound conditions. If you do not understand and learn how to handle this process, you can not cope with repeated outbreaks. Treatment of wounds you see only means that the wounds created at this moment do not stop. Remember, you can not drain a wound that is not wet, and irritants not only aggravate the situation by creating more redness and swelling, but also damage the skin's ability to heal. The best action is to work for the cause of a pimple, not the result.
