Acne FAQs:Discover The Top 7 FAQs About Your Acne
by Thomas C. Campbell

I'm sure that you must have your own acne faqs about your skin condition. Acne is a very common skin condition that the majority of us have had some experience with at one time or another.

Dealing with the condition is hard enough but when you add all the inaccurate information that is available out there about acne it just creates more confusion and stress, when all you want is some clear answers so that you can deal with your acne effectively.

I hope that the following answers to these 7 acne faqs will be the answers you've been looking for.

1.) Is Acne Contagious - Can You Catch Acne From Someone Else?

Answer: It's true that some forms of acne contain bacterium. However, because the bacterium is confined within your hair follicles which are located beneath your skin, physical contact from someone who has acne will not transfer the condition to you.

2.) Is Acne Hereditary - If My Parents Have Or Had Acne Does That Mean I Will Also Have Acne?

Answer: The research conducted has shown a link between acne and heredity. Bear in mind that the studies do not draw the conclusion that if you are a child of parents who have a history of acne that you'll also have acne. You do however have a higher risk of developing acne.

3.) Is There A Link Between The Foods You Eat And Drink And Acne?

Answer: Studies have been conducted over the years to make a connection between the foods you eat and drink and the causes of acne. The studies have tried to make the case that foods such as candy, orange juice, chocolate, milk and greasy fried foods cause or make your condition worse.

The case that acne is caused or made worse by eating and drinking certain foods we consume in our daily diet has not been proven.

A good course of action would be to monitor closely your diet and take note of any food and or drinks which

you feel causes a negative reaction in your skin. Armed with this information it would make sense to stop eating and drinking those foods.

4.) Is There A Connection Between Stress And Acne?

Answer: Stress does not cause acne in a direct sense but it has been shown to aggravate the condition. If you are prone to having acne outbreaks brought on by stress, then having a stress management plan to fall back on makes good sense. Having a plan to manage your stress will be valuable to you not only in keeping your acne in check but your over-all health life as well.

5.) Does Make Up Or Sunscreen Make Acne Worse?

Answer: Products that tend to be thick and greasy may plug up the follicles on your skin leading to problems of acne developing on your skin. Our skins are all different and therefore will react differently to various products.

If you have a history of acne then you will have to be more careful about what you put on your skin. Be sure to apply only oil free products to your skin and always do a test of the product on a small area of your skin before using it on larger areas of your body.

6.) Does Exercising Affect My Acne?

Answer: Many acne sufferers do experience a worsening of their acne after exercising. As yet there is no clear answer as to why this is the case.

7.) Why Has My Acne Stopped Responding To Current Treatment?

Answer: Your body has a tendency to become accustomed to medication to the point where its initial effectiveness may diminish or stop working after a period of time.You may want to consider using your different acne treatments on a rotational basis.
