MYTH #1

Washing my face daily with cleansers and scrubs is sufficient enough to remove all dirt particles on the skin surface and maintain clean skin hygiene.

TRUTH

Simple washing of the face cannot remove microscopic bacteria and fungus above the skin’s surface. Harsh scrubbing of the face is not recommended as it can strip the skin of its natural oils and dead skin cells, harming the skin layer.

MYTH #2

Pores can be minimised and shrunk forever.

TRUTH

A common misconception is that pores can be eliminated. As pores are connected to oil glands below the skin, the openings can only be minimised by laser treatments, but never removed.

MYTH #3

Eating chocolate, peanuts and unhealthy foods can cause acne breakouts.

TRUTH

There is no scientific evidence to suggest a direct correlation between food intake and acne development. However it is common to eat chocolate, peanut and other unhealthy foods when we are stressed, and stress is proven to be one of the aggravating factors that lead to acne breakouts.

MYTH #4

I am born with oily, acne prone skin and I can do nothing about it.

TRUTH

Genetics play a big role in the type of skin we have, including oily and acne prone skin. Oily skin caused by excessive sebum production in the oil glands can be managed and controlled with frequent laser treatments and medication.

MYTH #5

Pigmentation might disappear by itself over time.

TRUTH

Some pigmentation problems arise because of genetics, however sun exposure and hormonal imbalance are often the most common culprits of pigmentation development. If left untreated, some may darken over time or more spores may appear in different areas of the skin with age.
