What Causes Acne?
Acne sucks, simple as that. At any age, acne can be irritating and cause self confidence issues. I know this because when I was in elementry school through my early twenties, I had pretyt bad acne. I kept pilling on makeup to cover my bad skin, but never really tried to 'fix' it, or focus in on what causes it. When you know what causes your acne, that is the first step to fixing the problem. However, acne can be caused by many things, such as the food we eat, the make up we left on the night before, the stress we are going through, etc. But it can also be caused by problems within your body. Do you keep getting acne in the same spots, and dont know why? See if any of these match up with what you have, and it could be the cause.
Forehead: Digestive System. I think it’s time to reduce the amount of junk food in your diet, and/or drink more water! (area 1 & 3)
Between the Brows: Liver. You’r body has had a big alcohol intake, cut it out. Also cut back on dairy while you are at it. Remember to take good care of your liver with light exercise and good sleep, your liver needs to rest too! (area 2)
Crows Feet (anything around the eyes) and Ears: Kindey. Drink more water! This is signs of dehydration….maybe also cut back on coffee and caffeine intake. (area 6 & 8, 4 & 10 )
Nose: Heart. You should check your blood pressure and Vitamin levels. Replace bad fats with good fats! (area 7)
Cheeks: Respiratory system. This usually effects smokers the most, and around allergy season. Add more alkalizing foods to your diet, such as veggies and wheatgrass. Also dirty phones, and pillow cases can cause cheek acne. (area 5 & 9)
Chin and sides of chin: – Hormones. Gotta love them…not! This is the number one place for stress and hormonal acne. To reduce acne in these areas, get enough sleep, drink water and eat healthy. (area 11 & 13)
Middle/Lower chin: Stomach. Eat more fiber and drink herbal teas, you might be having digestion problems. (area 12)
Neck: Sickness. Acne in this area is a sign your body is fighting off bacteria to avoid illness. (area 14)
This is not a proper doctors diagnosis, and if you are suffering from acne and feel like it might be because of something more then just stress, go see a local dermatologist or doctor for a proper diagnosis.
