Also, reduce your caffeine intake as well as overly processed drinks like soda.

Bit if this isn’t the case, it could be stress related.

When you’re stressed your body releases adrenaline that can rev up oil production therefore increasing breakouts.

The fix?

When times are stressful, opt for a leave-on acne treatment.

Chin, Jawline, Neck

You might start to notice these kinds of outbreaks when you’re on your period.

How?

Hormones like testosterone fluctuate throughout your cycle and ultimately cause your glands to produce more oil..and well.. you know the drill.

So how do you prevent this?

A week before your monthly friend arrives, opt for a cleanser with acne-fighting ingredients like:

  • benzoyl peroxide or
  • salicylic acid

Also, apply a leave-on treatment with the same active ingredient of your choosing.

Cheeks

This might get a little gross….

But your dirty phone or better yet… your dirty hands might be the culprit on this one.

To better explain, anything essentially that touches your face for a long period of time is more likely to transfer dirt or bacteria to your skin.

The fix?

For starters, clean and disinfect your cellular device with antibacterial wipes on the daily.

Also, KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF OF YOUR FACE!

Who’s to blame for this one?

Chances are you can blame yourself and your diet and the fact that there are still remnants of your meal on your face.

Residue from acidic foods can really irritate the skin and cause inflammation.

But that’s not all.

Remnants from greasy foods can have the same effect.

The fix?

Always use a facial cleansing wipe to clean around your mouth after you eat.
