The FTC has had a huge crackdown on the number of curing acne-related products sold in the marketplace. There has been further problems created by certain iPhone and Android apps and the developers of these apps could find themselves in trouble. However, there is one such app has managed to be well received by both users and government departments alike.
Common Acne Myths
The Common Acne Myths app has been specifically designed to dispel many of the myths about acne. Therefore, it is not much of a cure, but more of an information and advice app. Acne is a common problem for much of the population, and it doesn’t appear to be just age related. Teenagers and adolescents seem to suffer from acne more than anyone else, but these problems can still occur well into adulthood.
Unfortunately, acne can be an embarrassing problem and all too often people fall prey to certain myths. Some of the more common “myths” around acne include, eating chocolate, drinking soda, wearing sunscreen and even suffering from stress. Acne is actually more of a cosmetic problem and there are ways to deal with it. Your diet will play a large part in getting rid of acne, but not everything you read is true.
