Tanning Clears Up Your Skin and Other Acne Myths Debunked

When it comes to acne, everyone has their own theories; some theories are right while others are wrong. Since you can’t believe everything you hear though, it’s important to know the facts for yourself. The acne myths debunked in this infographic are sure to teach you a thing or two.

Within a few days you’ll probably break out even worse in that same spot. Plus, popping zits also leads to scarring, dents and pits, which often last forever.
