MYTH: I have acne. Does using moisturizer clog my pores?
FACT: Not if you look for non-comedogenic moisturizers. Moisturizers help prevent your skin from drying out, which can cause more oil to be produced. Look for lightweight, oil-free products that won’t clog pores.
MYTH: My diet doesn’t affect my acne.
FACT: Eating certain foods & drinks might actually affect acne. Scientists are investigating whether eating certain carbohydrates such as white bread, white potatoes, chips, cornflakes, pretzels and drinking skim milk might make acne worse.
MYTH: Tanning helps clear up acne.
FACT: Tanning salons don’t actually affect your acne. However, they can potentially cause skin cancer and wrinkles.
MYTH: People with acne shouldn't wear makeup.
FACT: False. If you’re going to wear makeup with acne, just make sure you wear some that says “oil free” and “non-comedogenic.” However, it is still important to remove your make-up before you go to bed.
MYTH: Popping a pimple will help it go away faster.
FACT: When you pop a pimple, it's actually more likely to either leave a mark or scar.
