There are over 50 types of acne, but the most common form is called - logical - of acne vulgaris. The causes vary: bacteria, genes, hormones, local factors of the pores.

Despite extensive research on the subject, some myths persist and there is always a twinge of doubt when nothing seems to work. At these times, it is good to separate myth from fact. Take the quiz below and see how many questions you are able to hit:

Can you cure acne?


The acne is not curable, unlike many proclaimed advertisements in skin care products. However, using suitable remedies and following a balanced diet is possible to control the progress or prevent the development of the disease.

Acne is worse in adolescence?


Acne is a disease of the sebaceous glands of the skin due to clogged pores, with the appearance of lesions popularly known as pimples. Acne lesions usually occur on the face (most common), neck, back, chest and shoulders. Although not a serious health threat, the permanent scars can be disfiguring a person and cause for anxiety. The exact relationship between acne and adolescence is unknown, hormonal changes typical of the period make the sebaceous glands increase their size by up to three times - and this can be a valuable clue.

Women who do not menstruate right have more acne?


In some women, persistent acne is caused by excessive production of androgens and this can be diagnosed from a few signs, like acne adult onset, hirsutism (excessive hair growth in places where they were not before), acne worse in the premenstrual period, irregular menstrual cycles and elevated blood levels of certain androgens.

Stress worsens acne?


Stress can actually aggravate acne in some individuals. Keep a regular sleep pattern is important in controlling the disease.

The sun helps improve acne?


At first, the sun mask acne, dehydrating the skin glands, and seems to improve the overall picture. However, the sun also damages the follicles and cause clogging of the pores, resulting in more acne - this effect usually appears 3-4 weeks after exposure to sunlight.

The more sex, more acne?


One of the most famous myths related to sexual activity worsening of acne. This of course has no foundation. In fact, sex can reduce stress levels and thus reduce the acne.

Pizza, chocolate and other "goodies" can cause acne outbreaks?


Less than 2% of cases of acne is due to food allergies. In most people, however, there is a specific association between certain foods and acne - there is a relationship between acne and intake. Hypercaloric diets increase levels of testosterone and testosterone increases mucus production in the skin glands - which later turn into acne lesions.

Good nutrition helps maintain healthy skin. Some scientists say that caffeine and excessively salty foods may aggravate acne in some individuals. Still, it is recommended to eat low fat and low sugar, increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables - a diet rich in vegetable fiber and low in fat is excellent for the health of the body as a whole. And drink plenty of water - eight glasses daily is the recommended minimum.

Exercise helps improve acne?


Exercise is good for health, improves blood circulation and oxygenates the best organs in the body - including skin, the largest. Only take care to wash your face after exercise to remove sweat and oily secretions that contain bacteria.

Toothpaste help?


Apply toothpaste lesions before bed at night, part of the routine of many people with acne. The pulp dehydrates injuries. Researchers say, however, that the fluoride in toothpaste cause bone and can further irritate the application site. The choice is yours.

It´s good to keep your face clean?


But one should beware of "cleaning". No wash excessively, since the skin needs a specific pH level to remain healthy. It is important to note that acne is not caused solely by skin "dirty", but the result of clogged pores infected with bacteria - and this is caused by a number of factors, not just dirt. Clean the face is often not enough to prevent acne. Furthermore, cleaning may erroneously aggravate the disease.

The recommended: wash your face two or three times a day at most, from the chin to the hair line at the top of the forehead, with gentle circular movements. Rinse with lukewarm water and use a soft towel to dry the skin. Do not use plugs or sponges.

The proper choice of soap is crucial. Soaps detergents help reduce sebum production, but in some cases may worsen the disease. Generally, we recommend the use of mild soaps. Astringent not recommended unless it is extremely oily skin. If they are recommended, use them only on oily spots.

Zinc is good?


Zinc is a mineral that has proven extremely effective results in several scientific studies - their effect can be compared to tetracycline. But beware: high doses of zinc (up to 100 mg of zinc per day) are toxic. It is recommended daily intake of 50 mg, but the results may take up to 3 months to appear. Acne may worsen before showing signs of improvement. Zinc is not a permanent cure for acne, but get good response rates by up to 75% of cases.

Taking antibiotics is good?

True, but depends on the case.

Cases of moderate or severe acne often require antibiotic orally to control inflammation and the proliferation of Propionibacterium acnes (a type of bacteria normally present in skin).

Some people experience side effects with the use of these antibiotics, such as excessive sensitivity to light, burning in the stomach, dizziness and skin discoloration, among others.

Should not be given tetracycline (an antibiotic commonly used to treat acne) to pregnant women or children under 12 years of age, as this medicine may cause discoloration of developing teeth.

Treatment with antibiotics usually takes 4-6 months to show results more definitive and should always be done under medical supervision.

Squeezing improves?


In no event squeeze your pimples - this only increases the risk of undesirable scars. Also, do not put your hands in the face perhaps the most underrated in the history of medicine in the treatment of acne. Hands are an endless source of bacteria. Avoid this contact is especially difficult - often it occurs unconsciously - but no less important than all other remedies and "likes" you use.

Use cosmetics has nothing to do with acne?


Oily cosmetics (lipsticks) can cause comedones, the precursor lesions of acne. Hair products like hair sprays, when in contact with skin may cause burning or itching in people with acne, worsening the disease.
