We all get breakouts from time to time and they are never pretty. I hate finding a pimple or a bunch of them. It’s enough to ruin the entire day. However, instead of just slapping on some cream and waiting for them to go away, you can get to the root of what’s causing your breakouts. Sometimes they are telling you something and finding out what it is can help you solve the problem. Here’s what your breakouts might be saying to you.
1 Forehead Acne Might Be Due to Digestive Disturbances
According to experts, when you get zits on either side of your forehead, your digestion might be in turmoil. What could be going on is that you are skimping on water and maybe eating too much junk food. Pump up your water intake and scale back on fatty, salty foods and replace them with whole, healthy foods like fruits and veggies, and see if things clear up.
2 Pimples on Your Jawline Can Often Be Blamed on Hormones
I hate when acne crops up along my jawline. It doesn’t look good and it’s not all that comfortable either. Not to mention being hard to mask with make-up. Often, when you get breakouts in this area you can assume that hormones are at play. Perhaps you’re super stressed or you’re at that time of the month. Talk to your doctor about how to control the hormones and you might just see the zits go away.
3 Seeing Zits between Your Eyebrows Might Indicate a Poor Diet
Much like forehead acne, getting pimples between your brows means your body is telling you to slow down on the alcohol and the rich, fatty foods. I know – it’s disappointing, isn’t it? Breakouts here might also be a symptom of a mild food allergy so get yourself tested to make sure you aren’t reacting to something that you’re eating.
4 Breakouts on Your Cheeks Could Indicate Respiratory Issues
Many people who smoke or who have allergies experience breakouts on their cheeks. That’s because both issues interfere with the health of the skin and blood vessels in this area. Quitting the cigarettes is a no-brainer, but if you have allergies, talk to your doctor about controlling them, which can help eliminate the zits at the same time.
5 Chin Breakouts Can Be Linked to Hormones or Stress
Because your chin is so close to your jawline, hormones and stress can also result in pimples there. In fact, many women report breakouts on their chin as their hormone levels fluctuate with their menstrual cycle. Pimples here might also indicate that you need more fiber in your diet so start eating more fruits, veggies and whole grains and see if that helps.
6 Your Kidneys May Need Some Love if You Get Acne near Your Ears
Weird, I know, but it’s backed by science. If you suffer from breakouts near your ears, you might be overloading your poor kidneys. The solution? Cut back on alcohol, soda and caffeine and your kidneys will be a lot happier. That means clearer skin, so I think you’ll be able to do it.
7 Zits on Your Neck Could Be Telling You to Take Better Care of Yourself
If your main breakouts occur on your neck, it’s time to assess your overall health. That’s because breakouts in this area sometimes indicate that your body is fighting a bacterial infection. You know that means. Drink more water and try to get some rest.
8 Avoid Meat and Spice Foods if Your Nose is Breaking out
Your nose is linked to your heart. Cut back on meat and spicy foods to reduce breakouts here. Swap these foods out for good fats, like avocados, fish, and flaxseed. If that doesn't work, check to see that your makeup hasn't expired and doesn't contain pore-clogging ingredients.
9 Your Hair Products Can Cause Pimples along Your Hairline
Hair product overload is the culprit. To avoid clogging your pores, keep hair products away from your hair line. To smooth a flyaway, spray your hand and lightly touch. Also, make sure your hands are clean when touching your face after doing your hair.
10 Your Diet Can Cause the Skin around Your Mouth to Breakout
Acidic foods can irritate your skin and cause inflammation. Also, the remnants of fried foods, like chips and fries, can physically block your pores. Prevent this with a facial cleansing wipe to get rid of irritants around your mouth after eating.
