Re: Helpp!! Acne outburst
Because the acne is on the sides of your face and your chin,it's possible it could be from talking on your cell phone. Cell phones harvest more bacteria then a toilet seat,so if you hold the phone against your cheek or chin,it could give you pimples there.
Make sure you are changing your pillow cases regularly,and if you use a make up brush,make sure you wash and disinfect those too.
If your hair is oily,try to keep it off of your face.Do not rest your hands on your face or chin.Do not touch your face.
What kind of face wash are you using? Most face washes don't do much against acne because they aren't on your face long enough.Using one that aims to kill bacteria is the best bet,something with Benzoyl peroxide (I like Panoxyl 10% Acne Foaming Wash,or Oxy).
Then it helps to use a light,non greasy lotion like Neutrogena rapid clear acne defense lotion with Salicylic acid.
If over the counter acne meds don't help,then it may be time to see a dermatologist.
