Fact of fiction

Acne is caused by food

Scientific studies have not found a link between diet and acne. Prisoners in the United States were enrolled on a trial to determine whether chocolate had a direct effect upon the sebaceous glands. At the end of the trial, it was concluded that acne was not affected by chocolate consumption. However, it is always sensible to advise a healthy, balanced diet, whilst reassuring that food will not affect acne.

Spots are caused by dirt

Spots are caused by activity beneath the skin and therefore surface dirt will play only a small role in the formation of acne. People think that the black in a blackhead is caused by dirt, but it is the skin’s natural melanin, which turns black once it comes into contact with the air.

Stress causes acne

The ordinary stress in day to day living is not an important factor in acne. Only situations of extreme stress may induce acne or make existing acne worse; however this is not common and your skin will usually respond well to acne treatments.
