Jawline Acne: Causes And Cures
Not a teenager and still breaking out? Read about how to banish troublesome jawline acne for good
The first step to treating jawline acne is to figure out the cause. One potential reason you are breaking out on your jawline could be due to hormonal changes that are going on in your body. More women tend to suffer from jawline acne than men do, due to an increase in their testosterone levels and imbalanced hormones. The Testosterone causes a buildup of proteins in the cells that line your pores, which continues until bacteria, pus and dead skin cells form inside, causing those unsightly pimples that you see along your jawline.
If you find that you are also experiencing increased hair growth on your chin, you may very well be suffering from hormonal acne. You should see your dermatologist or doctor and ask them to prescribe Spironolactone (also known as Aldactone), which is an anti-androgen that works to limit your hormonal fluctuations that contribute to breakouts that cause jawline acne.
Diet can also be attributed to jawline acne; if you consume excess caffeine, soda or sugars, this can often cause your hormones to go haywire, resulting in breakouts along the jaw. Cosmetics and makeup are also potential causes of breakouts, so try to look for makeup that is hypoallergenic, oil-free and designed for sensitive skin.
