How Do You Get Rid Of Mouth/jawline Acne?
Posted 30 April 2012 - 03:20 PM
First off, my story is the same as everyone else's basically. I've had horrible acne since I was 12-13, tried bunch of different stuff, nothing worked, blah blah blah. Finally went to an esthetician and she got me 75% clear (so thankful for that!) I eat like a health nut, take really good care of my face, etc etc so on and so forth. Also, I'm 17 and female, if that makes a difference.
The point of the story is 75% of my remaining acne is concentrated around my mouth and jawline and NOTHING I do will clear it up. Admittedly, it used to be a lot worse. It used to be deep down horrible cystic stuff, but now it's more surface acne with only very little cystic ones now and then. However, it still looks pretty bad Since I've been eating much healthier (especially drinking lots of v8 juice), my jawline/mouth acne has improved but it just won't go completely away! Now matter how healthy I eat, or how great I take care of my face, nothing I've tried will make it go completely away. My esthetician says she thinks it's definitely hormonal (especially since it gets a lot worse the week before my period), and suggested I go on BC - but I don't want to ingest hormones the rest of my life.
What do you guys suggest for clearing this up? Has ANYONE successfully gotten rid of their mouth/jawline acne?

Try not to be so harsh on your skin, I say that because I got so damn desperate to heal my acne that I got some scars, ok? =D

I just switched to a fluoride free toothpaste though cuz a lot of people said that helped clear up their mouth/jawline acne. Hopefully it helps some

Er, definitely no to the first part However, I still think it might have something to do with a hormone imbalance, especially since I break out worse around certain times of my cycle.
I'm going to look into the digestion thing though, because I've seen other people post about that. Are there any other good priobiotic foods besides greek yogurt (I don't eat dairy), and I'll have to google what jarrow dophilus is...Sounds interesting!

I had mine checked and they were low. People nowadays really don't spend enough time in the sun every day to make enough vitamin D. Problem is I can't really stay out in the sun because I burn. My doctor (who keeps up with current research) told me to supplement with Vitamin D-3 for 10,000 IU a day. It has been helping a lot.
Make sure you use Vitamin D in a softgel form so your body can absorb it.
This is what I use: Vitamin D-3 Gold in 5,000 IU strength: http://www.amazon.co...ASIN=B005G73N3I

I would go lay in the sun right now but the wind is blowing about 30 mph I'll have to check and see how much Vitamin-D is in my multivitamin though!
