What do your spots mean...???

Do you ever wonder if it's a coincidence that when you're hormonal you break out with a juicy second head on your chin (the last thing you need at that time of month!)? Getting spots on certain parts of the face can tell you what's going on in your body .

So what exactly do spots on certain areas mean? And once you've identified what could be the cause of blemishes and flare-ups, can you treat the cause to prevent them?

Spots on the forehead :
Whilst a fringe may help to hide a blemished forehead it could also collect grease from styling products and sweat causing spots in the first place. But fringe or no fridge it could be all down to your diet.

Alot of spots can indicate that you have been doing the dog on having too much red meat, saturated fats, proteins and alcohol, so cut down on these food groups and the boozing. Try doing a bit of a detox; cutting out meat and booze in favour of fresh veggies, herbal teas and water.

Spots on the cheeks :

Cheeks can be one of the most tender areas to find a spot - and the hardest to deal with so try addressing the cause.
Spots on the cheeks maybe the result of too much meat, sugar and dairy products.

Spots on the jawline :
These spots are again diet related. Spots on the jawline can indicate congestion in the large intestine, often caused by heavily processed foods.

Processed foods can mean anything from ready meals to biscuits so think about what you're eating. I have started get getting these recently..but I think that is because I've started living in the biscuit aisle of Aldi...ohhh but they are yummyyyyy!!!

Spots on the chin :
Few girls don't get a spot (or four!) once a month that makes your chin feel like its set to explode but ‘period spots' are not products of our paranoia, they really can be hormonally related.

Spots on the chin generally relates to hormonal fluctuations often at period or ovulation time. Unfortunately there's little you can do about this, unless it's a very bad problem in which case discuss it with your doctor.

To treat spots the advice remains the same as ever - try hard NOT to squeeze or pick them with dirty fingers and use a medicated products to treat and conceal.
