chin breakouts wtf

Recommended Posts

Everytime I come home for breaks from school (now is summer break) my chin always breaks out like crazy and it never does at school. I don't know what the hell is causing this and I desperately want to stop it because it's disheartening to basically live 2 different lives of acne. One where my skin is clear and good at school and one where my face just always breaks out at home.

It might be a lifestyle change. Are you staying up later and getting up later, and not focusing as much on medicine/facewashing/etc.? When I'm on break I wake up pretty late (like around noon) and think "Screw it, I don't feel like taking a shower or washing my face". And guess what? I break out!

yeah I go to sleep later and wake up later. Do you really think it's lifestyle change? Maybe I should try going back to how it was before, or should I just keep going with how it is now? My skin went from looking very good only a couple marks to literally like 10 noticeable ones. It sucks and I still don't know the exact cause, but my skin is ALWAYS more oily at home. God I wish I could fix it.

I used to get a lot of breakouts on my chin, I started taking 15mg of zinc and using tea tree oil on them, also drinking a lot of water and I haven't had one for weeks now.

Perhaps a difference in diet, or in the tap water you are washing in. You might want to look into a shower filter.

Frankly, I would just enjoy being on break. Just eat healthy, exercise, and do really try to stick to your regimine as well as you can. If it doesn't get any better, it could be diet, tap water, medication, just like others have mentioned. If it's really bothering you, see a dermatologist.

I'm on bactrim, tazorac and I use BP. So it's just odd. Hopefully I get used to it soon and my skin returns to how it was before. Thanks guys!
