We all know that when bumps arise on our chin, it means our hormones are out of whack.
It more often means your diet and stress management hasn’t been great of late.
Acne in that area also suggest you need more sleep and that you should maintain a healthy fitness regime.
Here are some handy tips on preventing chin acne from coming back:
1. Protect your chin. Doge your boyfriend’s prickly beard hair when you kiss him and keep your iphone screen from resting on your face.
2. Cut back on ice cream and pizza. Milk and greasy foods are REALLY bad for your chin. According to dermatologist Michael Shapiro, chin acne is linked to your small intestine. Instead, include fibre, fruits and vegetables into most meals of your diet. High concentrations of vitamin A and antioxidants also help prevent acne by ‘drying excess oil and reducing inflammation’.
3. Get the best of both worlds. Creams that include AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) and BHA (beta hydroxy acid) are the best kind. These are the two top acne-fighting ingredients.
4. Whip up a DIY concoction. To save money, make your own natural cream! Honey is a great option. Use your fingers to apply raw honey directly to your pimples and the surrounding skin. The sticky sap is a natural antiseptic, zapping acne-causing ick. Let it sink in for 30 minutes before you wash it off. Apple cider vinegar is also a great gentle exfoliant if you mix one part APV with three parts filtered water.
