Would Tears Cause Acne?

21 posts in this topic

I wondered that too because my sister who is really clear was crying the other day and she got a few zits right where her tears had been.

Whenever I cry I really don't notice any breakouts but my skin does have that splotchy after effect though if I'm crying for a stressful reason, or crying because I'm PMSing I notice breakouts which really have nothing to do with the tears.

If you are crying it's almost a dead cert you are pretty stressed out. Stress increases sebum! Higher probability of acne!


Morning & Night...Wash face with any 2% SALICYLIC ACID Wash (Neutrogena, Clearasil Ultra...etc), lather on damp face and neck for 60 seconds, rinse thoroughly with warm and then cold water, then air dry. Thats it! If shaving use SALICYLIC ACID wash as lather, wet shave with Bic single blade razor, rinse and then do above. If you must pop a whitehead disinfect (Dettol, TCP, Tea Tree Oil,2% SALICYLIC ACID gel..etc) hands and whitehead area before and after popping. Staph infections happen if you pick and squeeze, so avoid doing so. Low body fat makes you prone to infection, slow healing, and anxiety(picking). Take a multi vit/min & eat well.

Its the stress...crying in general might not be stressful (its a release) but if you are crying because of some stressful event (as opposed to say, a sad movie), THAT will break you out. Trust me, Im healing from a near breakup with my man a couple days back.


Current Skin-Care Regimen (A work in progress):

Morning:

Gentle wash with DKR cleanser

Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)

DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil (The lotion alone wasn't hydrating enough)

Skin 79 Korean BB Cream (excellent stuff)

Evening:

Gentle Wash with DKR Cleanser

Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)

DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil

Stress increases sebum? That's new!

All this time i was thinking that stress changes hormonal levels, which in turn changes the structure of sebum (to a gacky consistency) and therefore clogs the pore.

tears are just water, salt, and wastes. Yeah that would probably clog your pores, at least wash your face or something while ur eating your french-cries

i use to cry every day i was really stress out, because of the break out that i had. reason why is because i never had any pimples that i should worryabout, but this year was the worse year of my life. i started to break out out of the blue and it really made me feel bad, although everybody has been suportive, especially my boyfriend who i believe is the best. his helping me get through with this, always there.. i can't believe he can stand me, we use to go out a lot, have lots of fun but now, well, you all now that with the regimen especially at the start you really want to stay indoors rather than go out.... right?? anywayy when i use to cry i would see that the problem got worse, and stress was surely related . now am a bit more calm, and i sure do keep my self busy, in order to forget about this thing am going through ..which i hate so muchhhhhh . but of course there are somedays that i do feel bad and want to cry, but i put my self together and just try to forget :( But no worries will get through with this!!!1
