According to skincare expert Renee Rouleau,  one of the most common places to see pimples is on your face, particularly starting from your forehead and extending down your nose to your chin. Some statistics showed that women at the age of 20 above are likely to suffer from this bad situation. Once your hormones vary unusually, leading to dead cells and excess oil, which creates a favorable condition for bacteria to grow and breakouts to happen.

Spot treatments will simply cleanse the surface but still leave you with solid bumps under your skin. Also, these swollen bumps can last for 1-2 weeks and turn into red, inflamed and dark scars. And the worst comes when you cannot remove them and have no choice but live with them.

Common causes of acne along the jawline include

An unhealthy lifestyle

The bumps appearing along your chin tend to be more solid, however, they don't seem to be white as other acne elsewhere on your face.

The portion of Kapha dosha represented by the elements of earth and water could be a factor caused breakouts. Stress, weight gain, fluid retention, and allergies manifest in the body, all these can really take a toll on Kapha. When Kapha dosha is imbalanced,  skin can get clogged easily, leading to large pores along the lower half of the face, jawline, chin, and neck.

Besides that, some drugs used to treat depression and mental disorder can cause blackheads and pimples.

Fluctuating hormones levels

Hormones are always to blame for the breakouts of chin acne and jawline acne. Some women notice more acne around the time of their period as their hormone levels change. The period of puberty, menstruation, pregnancy often leads to acne-inducing hormonal fluctuations.

It puts pressure on the pores and makes pore lining narrower. In addition, the imbalance of hormones produces an excessive amount of oil.

Certain habits can also aggravate jawline acne too. Touching your chin too often transfers dirt and germs from your hand to your face. Bacteria strain takes advantage of the warm of your hands, moist environment to grow.

Irritation from clothing or cosmetics can also cause jawline acne, especially if your skin is sensitive.

Wearing a helmet with chin-strap, thick shoulder pads, or other equipment close to the face can trap heat and sweat in the area.

Change your diet

It goes without saying that prevention is better than cure, therefore pay attention to a healthy diet is the easiest and most effective way to get rid of acne and pimples.

Eating low-glycemic foods made of complex carbohydrates may reduce your risk of developing acne. Try to avoid dairy products such as yogurt, milk and all cheeses in case acne breakouts appear. Foods containing the following ingredients are also thought to be beneficial for the skin:

Leafy greens: kale, watercress, broccoli, and spinach. These foods are full of chlorophyll, helping cleanse dirt and bacteria from bloodstream and digestive tract.

Foods rich in zinc: nuts, sunflower, shellfish, chicken, cashews, pumpkin seeds, and pulses. Studies suggest that eating foods rich in zinc may be useful in preventing and treating acne. The researchers found that low levels of zinc are linked to more severe cases of acne. This dietary mineral is important in skin development as well as regulating metabolism and hormone levels.

Foods rich in Beta-carotene:  sweet potatoes, carrots, butternut squash, cantaloupe, lettuce, red bell peppers, apricots, broccoli, and peas. Beta-carotene is one of two forms of vitamin A found in your daily diet. Vitamin A can be converted to retinol, balancing collagen levels in your skin, promoting healthy cell growth.

Probiotics: Kombucha, yogurt, Miso soup, Sauerkraut. Probiotics are live, friendly bacteria that benefit your overall health and your skin. They also help you digest food, combat against environmental damage, and strengthen the immune system to hydrate the skin and prevent infection, breakouts, and irritation.

Mind your skincare routine

Start your new day by washing your face with a gentle cleanser to remove excess oil from your skin. Some other lifestyle to enhance good bacteria flourish as dialing down stress levels, sleeping well, exercising, taking time to relax and restore, and meditating.
