If there was one thing the entire world could agree to it would be that pimples suck. And even though there are many concealers and high coverage foundations available to cover up those nasty zits, it would be so much better if they were not there in the first place.
To get rid of acne, you first have to understand why it's happening. Pimples, in fact, give you a lot of insight about what's going on inside your body. And if you fix the underlying issue that is causing the acne, you can put the concealer away forever. Below we've broken down the most common causes of pimples on various locations throughout your face:
1. Forehead: Pimples occurring on the forehead are usually due to digestive problems (your system not being able to break down certain foods), liver problems or an irregular sleep schedule. Drink more water, clean up your diet and have a regular sleeping schedule to combat these pimples.
2. T-zone: T-zone pimples are usually due to an imbalance in the kidney, stomach, or spleen. Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables, cut down on cigarettes and alcohol to stop pimples from occurring in the t-zone.
3. Nose: A nose pimple is most likely due to blood pressure issues since your nose is connected directly to your circulatory system. Cut down on smoking, alcohol and coffee to combat nose pimples.
4. Cheeks: Cell phones are bacteria heaven; pressing your dirty cell phones against your cheeks makes your cheeks an acne heaven. Use a phone soap
like this one to clean your phone and keep cheek acne at bay.
5. Chin: Pimples on the chin are usually due to stress/hormonal problems. Manage your stress by consuming a balanced diet, exercising, and getting enough sleep. For hormonal pimples, visit your dermatologist.
6. Ears: Ever get deep pimples right by your inner ear? It is most likely because of dehydration. Chug that water!
7. Jaw-line: Pimples on the jaw-line occur mainly because of an unhealthy diet. This can easily be combated by increasing your intake of fruits, vegetables and water.
