Your acne communicates with you. There are acne patterns to lookout for. If you get a breakout begin with paying attention to the location of the acne and then you can easily understand why you may be experiencing new blemishes.

Then, you can quickly make some adjustments to get back to clear skin. For example: ๐‘จ๐’„๐’๐’† ๐’๐’ ๐’•๐’‰๐’† ๐‘ช๐’‰๐’†๐’†๐’Œ๐’” There are a few factors for blemishes in this area:

1. Sleeping on the hands or pillowcase. If you are using hair products, which contain pore clogging ingredients, the residue can transfer to the pillowcase. This also goes for skin oil. By changes pillowcases every few days and using the proper hair products, this acne trigger can be avoided.

2. Congestion on the apple of the cheeks is usually by foundation, concealers, primers and blush products that contain pore cloggers like sodium lauryl sulfate, laureth 4, and sodium chloride. Have you switched to a new makeup product recently?

3. This area can also be affected by wrong birth control methods, which is common for it to spread upward from the jawline area. Lo-estrogen birth control triggers high androgen (male hormone) side effects. This hormone increases oil in the pores.

4. Another offender is the position of your cell phone. Most of the time a diagonal pattern from the corner of the mouth, across the cheek, and next to the ear will appear. This is easy to avoid by wiping your cell phone down daily with an alcohol wipe. However, even a clean phone can trigger acne. Friction from pressing your phone against the skin can aggravate the pores and create breakouts as well. Your best bet, put your phone call on speaker.
