Where Your Pimple Is Located Reveals a Lot About What Caused ItIt could be a sign of a health condition you may not be aware of.
Subborn chin zits? Never-fading red bumps on your forehead? Believe it or not, there's a reason your acne always appears on the same spot on your face.
According to New York dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe, “Based on Ayurvedic (a holistic approach to health) principles, there are reasons you might be breaking out in one particular area over another.” Wonky hormones, an imbalanced diet, bad hygiene, stress, or an underlying issue with an internal organ are all factors that could trigger pimples in a focused spot.
That said, let us give you a detailed breakdown on your breakouts:ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
WHAT: Digestive problems, small intestine and liver issues, high stress levels, irregular sleep cycle, poor diet, reactions to hair products
HOW to avoid: Get at least seven hours of sleep every night, drink lots of water to flush out toxins, and watch your diet (avoiding sugary drinks and foods usually works).
Temples and Eyebrows
WHAT: Poor circulation, gall bladder problems, a food allergy, a diet too high in fat, processed foods, or alcohol
HOW to avoid: Drink tons of water (as your mom says, eight glasses a day!), cut out canned or overly-processed foods, check for lactose-related allergies, and skip after-work happy hour.
WHAT: Gastrointestinal imbalance, bloating, constipation, expired makeup
HOW to avoid: Stay away from spicy food and try cutting back on meat. Also, check if your foundation is past its best-before date. The nose is completely dotted with dilated pores!
WHAT: Lung issues, liver problems, overeating, stomach problems, stress, dirty cell phones, pillowcases, or makeup brushesADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
HOW to avoid: You sleep on your face a lot, so be sure to change beddings regularly. Say no to smoking and eating too much late at night; wash your makeup tools and wipe your phone down with rubbing alcohol after each use.
WHAT: Constipation, too much spicy and/or fried foods, reaction to toothpaste ingredients
HOW to avoid: Eat more fiber, fruits, and vegetables. Also, you might want to switch toothpaste brands!
WHAT: Hormones, gynecological issues, kidney imbalance
HOW to avoid: Hormonal changes can be unavoidable, but prevent pesky zits from appearing by getting enough sleep, drinking lots of water, and even taking birth control.
WHAT: Dehydration, kidney issues
HOW to avoid: Ditch caffeine, excess salt, and sugary drinks. Water is key to flushing all those toxins right out!
Acne cases can be solved by a curated fusion of doctor-recommended treatments and a change in eating/sleeping/skincare habits, so make sure you pay your derma a much-needed visit.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
