Does it seem like youve applied everything on your face to get rid of your acne? Apply Chris Gibsons Acne Free in 3 Days to your life now! Acne happens to everyone: adolescents, teenagers and adults. We get it, but we dont really know how they get on our face. Acne can differ from mild to very severe. It is formed when skin ducts and oil glands work overtime. The lining of the duct sheds cells and is moved to the outer layer of the skin. Once the skin duct gets clogged, oil is trapped underneath. The plug of a pore is called a comedo. A closed comedo (whitehead) is when a plug sits below the skin while an open comedo (blackhead) is pushed out to the surface of the skin. A blackhead has its name not because it contains dirt, but because of its darkness and difficulty in washing it away.

More Acne Myths

When I was a teenager, I was known as the Acne King -- and not without reason! With a visage that had scores of both black heads and white heads, I was a walking, talking advertisement for acne medication. If the scorn of my peers (especially the girls) was one thing, the impossibility of removing the ugly acne I had was another thing altogether.
The general myths about acne didnt help. My family members firmly believed that acne was a result of poor (or more specifically, junk) diet. While it was true that I enjoyed the frequent dose of junk food that the neighborhood fast food joints dished out, I wasnt too sure that eating out was the cause of my acne. I mean, a number of my friends ate out with me, and whats more, ate junk food even more frequently than I did. But they hardly had any acne. Something had to be wrong with the popular belief right? 
Another associated myth was that chocolate causes acne. And since I love chocolate in any form or shape, I would have found giving it up, …
