WHY AM I BREAKING OUT AROUND MY MOUTH!!! HOW DO I STOP IT/FIX IT!!!
I'm a big subscriber to the idea that where a breakout occurs can be a clue to the underlying cause
- •Around the mouth = hormones or liverHormones tend to be on the chin and lower mouth, liver (aka chemical detox) is around the laugh lines and top lip
- •So what can you do? Treat inside & outDrink lots of water - follow the normal protocol (salicylic acid in the morning, benzoyl peroxide at night) be gentle, don't pick, try to eat a lot of fresh, leafy greens
- •A note on Hormonal acne:Birth control pills are just about the only thing that can fix them long term if that's the underlying cause but it's helpful to note by the time you have a zit it's too late to do anything except wait it out. Hormonal zits usually form 12 days before you see the zit, so preventative action is key - developing a consistent routine, cleansing, toning and treating even when you don't have an outbreak.
