Remember when your momma used to say “you get pimples because you don’t wash your face.” Well, that wasn’t as true as the time she said “you’ll get cavities if you don’t brush your teeth.”
While pores clog from dead skin, dirt, and debris, poor hygene is rarely the cause of pimples. Many people with acne are prone to over washing, which causes an even higher rate of oil production.
Truth is, the bacteria, acne vulgaris, hormones, and foods are a greater culprit of pimples than poor hygene. That’s not to say that washing your face can’t help you prevent them, just don’t spend your time wallowing because your filth hasn’t lead to pizza face.
