Where You Get Acne Reveals A Lot About Your Health

Amazingly enough, there is an ancient theory as to why people develop acne on certain parts of their bodies. Modern dermatologists continue to believe in a theory borrowed from ancient Chinese and Indian medicines known as "face-mapping" to determine what the underlying causes of acne may be and how to prevent future outbreaks. For example, body acne is normally attributed to hormonal imbalances and genetics. However, it is also suggested that sufferers consider experimenting with different body care products, change the type of clothes they wear, and avoid pressure on the skin from a backpack or purse.

When you continually suffer acne breakouts in the forehead and eyebrows region, it is typically resolved by eating a balanced diet, adequately resting, and consuming more water. A lack of H2O can increase the irritation of hairline sweat when excess salt is being flushed from your body. Shampoos and other hair care products may also contribute to acne eruptions. Also, individuals who experience excess friction against the skin in these areas could be caused by a hat or helmet, therefore regularly cleaning these items may help lessen breakouts. Some individuals even believe that outbreaks on the forehead are the result of an overactive mind. Nevertheless, the primary cause is typically believed to stem from stress, which can be psychosomatic, and digestive problems.
