Reading Acne on your face

If you have acne on your....

cheeks: its stress-related

chin: hormonal (also very common for women who are menstruating)

forehead: digestive system (can also be too much acid in your intestine esp from tomato)

nose: clogged pores, overactive oil production because skin on nose is thick

upper lip: allergic reaction or irriation

note: if you wax or thread your upper lip or eyebrow, you can get breakouts from it.. so i suggest you apply S.A. after the procedure to prevent the open pores from getting clogged.

I will like to add that caffeine can stimulate acne. Avoid any stimulants especially if you are acne-prone. And drink a lot of water to flush out any toxins in your body.

Re: Reading Acne on your face

So any suggestion to the cheek or stress acne. Mine are cystic and very painful. How do we reduce our stress to get rid of cysts and acne. Honestly my life is about as stress free as possible right now. Yes I stress over things, but if you can't help stress, how how how can a person with stress acne, heal it????

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Oh and by the way I have moderate, severe acne and cysts (i think) and extremely oily skin. I take a multi vitiman and a B-complex supplement, have also added flax seed oil supplement.

I am going to do accutane, if I cannot control this by my derm appt. Which is end of October. So I have a little over a month to try last resorts before accutane. I have tried ALOT of other products, remedies, perscriptions and so on in the past.

Any suggestions to help the stress? Or am I doomed to resort to Accutane?

Re: Reading Acne on your face

For stress I do exercises which includes running, yoga and martial arts.

I used to stress out a lot especially when I was in college. Now I write things down that way I know what I need to get done and wouldnt have to go crazy about what needs to be done.

Each time you're THINKING is stress. Try not to think.. thats what I do, and it significantly help me clear my stress acne. Breathe (shallow breathing) and/or meditate. It might sound crazy or easy for me to say all this.. but i have become a more spiritual person and it takes effort to get thru this.

May i suggest a "pure" neem soap. I use One Village neem soap and it works wonder as it has for many of my friends whom I recommended this product to.

Im glad you're taking flax seed oil.. I suggest pure oil that you can drink or the ground flax seed. The supplements would require you to take multiple capsules per day which would equal to 6 a day.

And I hope that you would abstain from using Accutane because of its side effect. There are other options out there.

Hope all this will help..

Re: Reading Acne on your face

Where did you get this information?
How exactly does the clogged pore know it's clogged from stress and know to go to the cheek area etc?

Re: Reading Acne on your face

In my personal experience, stress is related to the forehead. You can do searches and you will see a whole bunch of articles about stress in relation to the forehead.

I also break out on my cheeks due to poor eating habits and also when it is that time of the month.

So I believe it's different for each individual.

Re: Reading Acne on your face

I would also like to know where you got your information. I have never heard of any of that beside the hormonal acne being on the chin and lower jawline which I believe is very true. But I don't think breakouts from stress are only located on the cheeks that doesn't make any sense. Exercise is one of the best ways to relieve stress and you have to think every day of your life. How do you just not think? If you want to relieve stress you should exercise, go have some fun with friends or a good laugh, play with your dog or pet, and take time to go get a massage or pamper yourself in some way or another.

not "thinking" = not good for a college student.

Re: Reading Acne on your face

Cassie: LoL.

well.. this information was gathered by myself and a nutritionist/skin specialist. granted, each individual is different but responds in a very similiar way.

You might want to look into some changes and see whats actually causing your acne.

I am Vegan and have no problems with my eating causing my acne. Yet, I am allergic to peanuts. I take Silica which is beneficial for the skin as well as pure noni juice.
