Right so I've cleared my acne up quite a bit over the last year or so. It was never that bad but I do go through bad phases. Anyway, i've turned really healthy and now eat lots of vegetables, lots of fruit, lots of nuts, all my bread is wholemeal and so is my pasta. I drink lots of water, and LOTS of herbal teas from green to white to rooibos to nettle. I wash my face twice a day with the simple skin care range which I find is gentle and has no fragrance, and do the same when i moisturise. I use queen helene mint julep masque once a week as well. Finally I take zinc, biotin, multivitamin, a dose of flaxseed oil and exercise daily.
DESPITE all this, I'm still plagued by intermittent jawline/chin/mouth acne. Now some weeks I can have hardly any which is great, but then I get those weeks where it just seems to keep coming. It's usually deep painful red acne and can take a while to go. For instance - the last few days ive had none at all, and the marks from previous ones started to fade. Then all of a sudden today I feel a really painful one coming up halfway down my jaw. WHY?! It makes no sense. The only thing I let myself down with is my sleeping pattern. Which regularly hits 1 or 2 in the morning before I go to sleep. I still aim for 7/8 hours a night though. SURELY this isnt the only reason for it?
Im a 19 year old male btw. Any help?
