What is Chin Acne?

January 16, 2018 by Mitesh Soma

Chin acne is not like teen acne. It typically occurs in women over 20 years of age and is usually due to hormonal changes. It seems changing birth control pills, pregnancy, post-pregnancy, PCOS or during menstruation, breakouts around the jawline and chin are more likely to occur. It is not definitively known why this happens but it’s believed the particular oil glands in that area may be more sensitive to hormonal fluctuations. Still, it’s an inconvenient annoyance right? So what does it look like and how can you treat it?

Chin acne typically appears as red angry bumps, occasionally situated next to pus containing pimples and there may even be some painful ones that do not even dare come to the surface.

The most logical way to help treat chin acne is to find the cause (which is usually hormonal) and treat it. You could start by seeing your GP and finding a birth control pill that works for you. But if the pill is not the route you personally want to take, then there are also everyday treatments you can try. For instance, wash your face daily with a gentle cleanser to remove excess oil build up. If that doesn’t work, there are always acne-fighting products over the counter that contain salicyclic acid or benzoyl peroxide. But if you, like us, prefer a more natural alternative, then a product containing either green tea, tea tree oil or aloe vera & zinc (both of which are found in the help: clear skin range) would be ideal for you.

The good news is that chin acne tends to disappear within a few days as the hormone levels stabilise. The bad news is that this is most likely to be an on-going problem that may occur every month. help: clear skin contains the natural alternative ingredients your skin needs to help keep skin clear throughout each month. Continual use may help reduce chin acne breakouts if not help prevent them from occurring at all, and could also help in preventing scarring.
