Hello all!
About a week ago, I started school. I'm a sophomore in high school, and I transferred schools, so I was a bit nervous, but I don't think it was enough to cause anything. However, two days into school, My acne suddenly shifted very dramatically. I stopped getting any pimples on my cheeks (Thank God! I know its only been 3 days-ish, but usually there's at least one every two days.) and instead broke out around the mouth area, exclusively with pustules. They come and go very quickly, but I can't figure out what caused the shift! The only thing I can think I changed is the temperature of the water at which i wash (hot to cold.) I'm happier with it like this to a certain extent, but I would love to be completely clear, not just partially. Does anyone have experience with this type of thing that could help me?

I only ever used to break out on my cheeks, but that has completely stopped now. I now break out on my chin and mouth area only, which I never did before.

I think anyone the hormonal around the mouth acne should try the regimen, I don't break out at all now.

Chin/jawline acne is generally an indicator of a hormonal imbalance. Look at the Hormonal forum.
