Chocolate Doesn't Cause Acne - And Other Myths

Acne is often thought of being a young people's problem, but many adults in their 20s, 30s, and beyond continue to suffer from this frustrating condition. Why is this?

While the jury is still not entirely out on what may be causing your acne, there are some myths out there that must be debunked so that those suffering from this often embarrassing condition can shift their focus on probable solutions.

Myth #1: Chocolate Doesn't Cause Acne (But Your Diet Might)

Numerous studies were performed throughout the 60s and the 70s which tried to prove or disprove the link between chocolate and pimples. Their findings: there is no connection. Chocolate does not cause acne, however the diet that you have today might.

A recent study observed the diets of over 200 people and found that those who consumed these foods were far more likely to have moderate to severe acne:

  • Sugary foods
  • Dairy products
  • Unhealthy fats

Those involved in the study also consumed less fish. This has led many researchers to believe that omega 3 fatty acids may have something to do with maintaining healthy, glowing skin.

Myth #2: Don't Use Sunscreen

Skipping wearing sunscreen is the worst thing you can do if you want to maintain young and radiant skin. That said, there are two types of sunscreens with which those with skin sensitivities should familiarise themselves:

  • Chemical sunscreens
  • Physical sunscreens

Chemical sunscreens contain you guessed it chemicals, such as oxybenzone and avobenzone. These two chemicals are known to be skin irritants and can cause inflammation, thus worsening your acne. Physical sunscreens, on the other hand, contain zinc oxide. Zinc oxide can actually help treat you acne and kill the bacteria which is causing it. Before you head outside, be sure to put on the right sunscreen!

Myth #3: Do Not Wear Makeup If You Have Acne

Those who have acne do not need to stop wearing makeup. What they should do, however, is be more conscientious about the products they are choosing to put on their skin. Some more oily and heavier products can clog the pores and cause pimples, but they will not ultimately cause acne.

Here's some better news: if you choose the right products, makeup can actually help treat you acne. Mineral foundations, for example, contain a number of ingredients like silica and zinc oxide which are able to absorb oils which would otherwise be clogging up your pores.

When used in conjunction with a proven acne-fighting products containing pure MSM, your acne can be completely manageable in a matter of weeks if not days.

Still the Best skincare out there!

Have been using the Mismo anti aging bundle for years and love the gel, oil serum and anti-aging cream. An irreplaceable evening skincare routine, occasionally tried others, but always come back to this for results. The gel and nourishing cream and eye cream for the day keeps your skin the best it can be, even improving it! Have stopped trying other brands, they just don't deliver results that Mismo does. Also I totally trust the ingredients, especially for sensitive skin. Just love all Mismo skincare!

Three wonderfully effective products

I have been using Mismo for many years now and I still sing its praises. The anti-ageing products all work together perfectly and soak into the skin leaving it silky smooth with no sticky residue. I have tried other products from time to time just for a change but not for long!
