What does acne on different parts of the face mean?

32 posts in this topic

About 2 years ago, my main battle was acne on my cheeks, and chin, it never went away! As I've grown older, my acne went away from my chin, and lower parts of my cheeks, and "migrated" to my forehead, and around my nose.

I remember hearing that the chin area deals with hormonal acne, and around the nose area/forehead deals with intestinal issues?

It's odd, because I never get acne where the hair grows on my face, never! I could rub it a billion times or pick at it, never. It's always dry and nice. But around my nose, it get bumpy, and only near the nose (that skin area) is where i get red bumps, but never beyond that line. It's on a leash or something. And also on my forehead, right near the center.

How is your acne like? And getting in certain areas, what does that mean?

People always think the key to fighting acne is to avoid foods, but in actually it's usually what they're NOT eating that's causing it to happen. It made no sense to start with omitting the small things that MAY cause acne for SOME people. Start with the basics of nutrition. You're a human, not an accumulation of minor problems from every person! Not everyone reacts to the same foods. Not everyone has issues with wheat and such foods. Start with the basics of good nutrition and THEN see what happens, omit foods once you feel something is not working, but don't base a diet off of what to avoid, that will make you malnourished and very depressed when you have nothing left to eat! It is true that some people have issues with some foods, but remember, try it for yourself first :)

Get to the root of the problem, because acne has a relentless and endless arsenal on the surface and it is sadistic.

Testosterone is a steroid hormone from the androgen group. Omega 3 fatty acids can also help to keep the production of androgens under control. Androgens are hormones that influence sebum production and are particularly active during adolescence, which is possibly why many teenagers suffer from acne. Androgen excess may provoke or aggravate acne by inducing seborrhea (sebum). In women, androgen disorders are frequently suspected when acne is accompanied by hirsutism or irregularities of the menstrual cycle. In men, however, acne may be the only sign of androgen excess.

well I used to only have it on my forhead and chin. Then it became my cheeks and then the sides of my face and everywhere on my face there could be acne. Any spot on my face you could think of. But I don't know what that means.

someone a while back posted a chinese facial map depicting various facial areas and the organs/parts of the body associated with each area

google it ?

as for me if i get acne above my nose line it's inflammatory, if i get near my mouth or below my nose line it's strictly hormonal

Is there a male version of that diagram? I have cysts on my chin and I don't have any ovaries inside me (just a penis and a couple of testicles, thank you).


Take responsibility for your health; read the full prescribing information for any medication you take and understand that not all risks or potential side effects will likely ever be fully known.

what a stupid theory.

Anyway, I get acne on my forehead that clears up easily, therefore my forehead is clear.

I also get it on my nose and the skin right under my nose, which is the worst problem area. It's not noticable, but it's very stubborn little bumps that don't go away! I've had a bumpy nose since I was 8.

Last but not least, my chin. Not all around, but the indent, where if you touch you would be touching your gums/roots of your teeth. These are tiny white colored pores that squeeze out easily to some extent.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

First it was my forehead and nose, then my chin and other various places. I rarely ever get anything on the sides of my face. When using BP, the only areas I really have to worry about are my chin and the fronts of my cheeks (lung area in that photo).


AM:DKR Cleanser, minimal Alpha Hydrox AHA w/ Jojoba oil (2 drops)

PM (Tues, Thurs, Sat, Sun):DKR Cleanser, 15 min., DKR BP, Cetaphil lotion/Alpha Hydrox AHA (1:5) Jojoba oil (5 drops)

PM (MWF): Use AM routine.

Supplements:

AM: fish oil x 2, calcium+vit D, aloe vera gel capsule

PM: fish oil x 2, zinc (30 mg), B-50 complex, garlic capsule, vit D, flaxseed oil

Diet:Fairly strict. Lots of fruits and vegetables, chicken, turkey, sometimes beef, nuts, oats and whole grain stuff for fiber. I ONLY drink water.

Status: Usually clear unless I mess with my routine.
