There are a lot of factors that can cause acne, and some of them are inside our bodies. Some western dermatologists think that acne in certain facial skin areas may be caused by a number of possible underlying reasons. For example, hormonal problems often lead to breakouts in the jaw and chin area. Recent studies also showed that gut health may be one of the reasons for acne.
We have collected the major causes of acne based on breakouts in different facial zones.
Zone 1: Forehead
Pimples on the forehead can be a result of major stress or an inconsistent sleep schedule. They also show that 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. It means that you have to check your hormone levels. These types of blemishes can be a result of an excessive level of androgen (male hormone). Hormonal acne is also typical during a woman’s period.
