Acne Due To Masturbation

Masturbation is surrounded by a lot of misconception and misinformation which needs to be dealt with, one of the most popular ones is if masturbation causes acne. 

Acne can happen for a lot of reasons and masturbation is not one of them. This misconception of mixing masturbation with acne happened during puberty when both are at their peak.

Clogged pores and excess sebum production can be a major reason for acne, a lot of times our dead cells and dead skin can not surface out which causes acne. Hormonal acne basically occurs because of an imbalance, however, acne can also be caused due to bacterial infection. When bacteria might be living in your pores and treating acne.
