Breaking down what’s behind your breakouts

Don’t you just love waking up in the morning to find a new spot on your face?

Yeah, neither do we. When spots come we are sometimes quick to blame hormones, right? However, our eating habits can also affect the condition of our skin. Our skin is a lot like reflexology, which means that what’s going on with our skin can tell us a lot about what’s going on in our body.

So why do we get spots on certain areas? And what can we do to prevent them? Read below for an easy breakdown.

Spots on the forehead:

If you have a fringe you are more likely to have spots due to grease from styling products and sweat that might gather on your forehead. We suggest keeping your hair clean and making sure you thoroughly clean your face each night to keep your pores cleans. If you don’t have a fringe, it could be your diet. Often these spots on our foreheads indicate over-consumption of red meat, saturated fats, and alcohol. We suggest cutting down on these food groups and see if you notice any different after 2 or 3 weeks.

Spots on the cheeks:

Spots on the cheeks are often very painful and harder to cover up and conceal. These spots are often the result of too much meat, sugar and dairy. Cut down on each of these groups, one by one for a few weeks and see how your skin transforms.

Spots on the jawline:

Spots on the jawline are often diet-related and could mean that you have a congestion in your large intestine which can be caused by processed food. Processed foods vary from ready-made meals to biscuits, so it’s wise to think about what you’re eating before putting it into your mouth. Try selecting simpler foods such as fruit, veggies and nuts.

Spots on the chin:

Spots on your chin are caused by none other than the time of the month, good old ‘Aunt flow’ – the monthly treat we get from Mother Nature. Ways to treat these spots would be using face wash or toner that contains salicylic acid which helps to unclog your pores. These spots are unfortunately unavoidable – so the only tip we have her is to avoid picking them as this will cause scars and make the spots stay longer.

Does the above make sense – where do you most often breakout on your face?

    Very informative. I have been having breakouts lately and I thought I needed to remove the implant on my arm. Now I will try to eat more healthy and see if there are any changes.
    Thank you

    Makes sense👍I mostly get those chinny spots once a month. I just leave them and try not to pick them. They tend to go away after a short while without leaving a mark. Picking them is a big no no, as it leaves a mark. Thanks for the breakdown #rubybox ❤️
