Myth 1: Acne does not need to be treated, it will heal after puberty
After puberty, acne problems will subside, but without proper care and treatment, it is likely to lead to enlarged pores and skin problems such as acne scars and marks.
Myth 2: You should eat less spicy food if you have acne
Most people think that eating spicy food will lead to acne, but in fact, eating too much sweet food will affect the intake of other nutrients, leading to uneven skin nutrition, causing increased oil secretion and changes in sebum composition, triggering or aggravating acne. Therefore, it is best to replace them with oligosaccharides and sugar alcohol sweeteners.
Myth 3: Adult acne is mainly non-inflammatory
Acne that persists after puberty (age 20) is collectively referred to as adult acne and is usually predominantly inflammatory in nature. There are many causes of adult acne, such as stress, diet and poor lifestyle habits, which can stimulate oil production.
This will lead to the outbreak of acne.
Myth 4: Bloodletting, cupping can cure acne
The original effect of bloodletting and fire cupping is to promote blood circulation and thus improve the skin condition, but from the acne treatment (especially inflammatory acne treatment) itself, the most important point is to eliminate inflammation and unclog pores, and the above prescriptions cannot resist inflammation. If you need to improve your acne, it is best to consult your doctor and use medication and acne products to assist you in your treatment.

2. image of keratinization: pimples have a "head", which is a plug of keratin that clogs the pore, whereas small red dots do not usually have a "head"
3. Distribution: Acne is mainly concentrated in areas with high oil secretion, such as the T-zone and jawline, while allergic dots are mostly found in the cheekbone area and around the mirage.
