Re: Chin/Jawline Acne! Is it purely hormonal???

Shannamarie,

I believe it is hormonal. I strongly believe that. Much of what I have read (and I have read A LOT!! lol)about acne, the location of acne, etc. indicates that acne along the jawline and chin is hormonal. When I break out before my period starts, it is ALWAYS in that area. Someone would have a hard time convincing me otherwise. Now I'm not saying that other things cannot cause breakouts in that area. I'm saying that hormones play a very significant role in breakouts in the chin/jawline area, IMO.

It probably is. About 90% of my breakouts are on my chin and jawline - the rest on my cheeks and forehead.

I had bad acne when I was younger and now itís under control except for my jaw line and chin, just like you guys are saying. Itís really annoying.

The best thing to do would be to try birth control pills. I've been on Ortho Tri-Cyclen for 6 months and my skin has improved tremendously. It takes 4-6 months to see results though.

Re: Chin/Jawline Acne! Is it purely hormonal???

I have been taking 3 separate supplements: saw palmetto, b-complex vitamin, and zinc. That combo has cleared up 99% of my chest acne, which I am told is also related to hormones. So, I'm gonna give that combination time to work on my chin/jawline. From what I'm told, it could take a few months for it to really work on the face. Even though my chin and jawline only breakout before my period, I'm hoping those 3 supplements will keep the breakouts to a minimum.
