Skincare Myth: Acne = Sensitive?

Again, this is the common mistake even beauty advisors will make, always prejudice that acne skin must be very sensitive. How do they related to each other?

Acne could be caused by different factors:
1) Bacteria,
especially those acnes accumulate in an area, that's bacteria infection, cause inflammation.

2) Dead skin cell
cause congestion on skin

3) Excessive oil secretion
excessive male hormone, hot and humid weather, pressure, insomnia, bad lifestyle...

4) Comedogens
certain cosmetic ingredients: Isopropyl myristate, Isopropyl isostearate, Isopropyl palmitate, mineral oil, petrolatum, paraffin, petroleum jelly, Octyl stearate, Myristyl myristate

If you do not find the root cause of your skin problems, you will never can find a proper solution to cure it. So, don't be too "superstitious" on those anti acne skincare, oil controlling products or sensitive range. If you have acne because of excessive dead skin cell, how could sensitive range help you? It really does not make sense.
