Acne on the chin

There are numerous situations in which you could do without nasty chin acne: an important business meeting, a romantic meal and a presentation in front of an entire class, to name just a few.



What causes chin acne?

The chin is part of the T-zone of the face, along with the forehead and nose. The T-zone has a high concentration of pilosebaceous follicles, making it an area conducive to acne growth. Initially, the T-zone shines because the skin is oily due to excess sebum: this is a warning sign of acne. Spots then appear. These will be blackheads, whiteheads, red spots, depending on the acne type.

Adult women are often affected by chin acne. Aged over 25, many women develop acne concentrated on the lower face. This is a rather inflammatory type of acne, characterized by the presence of red spots and with a high risk of marks and scars, especially if the person tends to touch their spots.

How do I get rid of my chin acne?

If you are dealing with one acne spot located in a specific place, a tinted or non-tinted "anti-spot" stick will do the trick to quickly dry and/or camouflage it. This type of product is particularly useful in the case of acne spots on the chin of adults: take it with you wherever you go in a bag or toiletries case!

If chin acne involves numerous spots, other treatments should be applied: gentle cleansing adapted to oily skin with imperfections, day cream adapted to the type of acne, and localized or generalized medicinal treatments. Think about non-comedogenic makeup to camouflage chin acne or highlight the eyes and draw the eye away from the chin!

In case of acne on the chin in women, see a doctor to find out the possible causes of the acne and to discuss treatments that have already been tried. Use cosmetics adapted to the needs of adult women to effectively fight chin acne.
