6 Common Areas to Get Acne on Your Face and What They Mean
Updated: May 2, 2019
Many of you have experienced the painful and embarrassing effects of acne breakouts. Maybe you’re considering getting bangs to cover your forehead full of pimples, or perhaps your breakouts like to appear in areas where it’s impossible to cover them up, like right bang in the middle of your chin.
You may have tried numerous products - only to see no results, but can we let you in on a little secret?
The area of your face where your breakouts most often occur can actually explain why you are breaking out. It sounds crazy, but just keep reading; you’re bound to relate to at least one of these!
Forehead Your forehead is linked to your digestive system so if you’re munching on chips and cookies on the regular and continuously struggle with forehead pimples, then you may want to lay off the carbs and replace it with healthy snacks instead like nuts and raw veggies dipped in hummus...Yum!
Another cause of forehead zits may be from wearing hats or using heavy hair care products, which can clog pores. Opt for natural hair care products, and be sure to thoroughly rinse your shampoo/conditioner before you exit the shower. Also wash your hats regularly, yes really!
Nose Are you even a human if you don’t have blackheads on your nose? Your nose is actually linked to your heart so to keep your nose smooth and clear try cutting back on red meat and spicy foods.
Cheeks This is a common area to break out, but the most common reason is a little gross. Dirty makeup brushes may be the culprit of blemishes on the cheeks, so if yours haven’t seen water and brush cleaner in a while, now may be a good time to give them a good scrub.
This area is also linked to the respiratory system so lay off the cigs and workout at least a few times a week to keep yours healthy.
Chin and jawline Hands up if you’ve ever experienced breakouts in this area right before that time of the month. The reason? Hormones of course. Hormonal changes are the most likely cause of pesky breakouts on the chin and along the jawline, but the good news is that balancing your hormones is easier than you think!
Between the brows This area is linked to food allergies such as lactose intolerance so if this is where you most commonly break out then you may want to start keeping a food diary to start figuring out what needs to leave your diet for good.
