There are many factors that can cause acne and some of them are found within our body. Some Western dermatologists think that acne in certain areas of the skin of the face can be caused by a number of possible underlying reasons.
For example, hormonal problems often lead to a rash on the jaw and chin. Recent studies have also shown that intestinal health can be one of the causes of acne. We compiled the main causes of acne based on breakouts in different facial areas.
Zone 1: Forehead
Pimples on the forehead can be the result of a lot of stress or an inconsistent sleep routine. They also show you have digestive problems, such as a high-residue diet. The other possibility is liver problems.
Zone 2: Jaw And Chin
Jaw and chin acne is almost always hormonal acne. That means you need to monitor your hormone levels. These types of spots can be the result of an excessive level of androgens (male hormone). Hormonal acne is also typical during a woman’s period.
Zone 3: Edges Of Your Face
Hormonal problems can also be the cause of rashes along the hairline and near the ears. The other possible cause of this type of acne could be the clogging or irritation of the pores.
You may want to check out your favorite makeup, skincare, or shampoo formula. Try using natural and organic beauty products to see if there is any improvement to your face.
Zone 4: Cheeks
Blemishes on the cheeks can be caused by high sugar intake. Try to limit your daily sugar intake, including processed sugar. This is just one more reason to switch to a healthier diet.
This area is also connected to your lungs. Acne on the cheeks can be the result of certain breathing problems.
The other possible reason for a cheek rash is phone use. In fact, phone screens contain many bacteria that are transferred to your face when you talk on the phone. Be sure to clean the screen with disinfectant wipes from time to time.
Zone 5: In Between The Brows
If it appears between the eyebrows, it could be due to liver problems. The liver has many functions and plays an important role in the digestive system and metabolism.
Acne between the eyebrows means that your diet is unhealthy and consists of fatty foods.
