What Your Breakouts May Be Telling You - The Clothes MaidenIMAGE: IMAXTREE


Forehead breakouts can be caused by a number of issues, including digestive problems, small intestine issues, liver issues, high levels of stress, irregular sleep cycle, poor diets and even reactions to hair products. To combat forehead acne, get at least seven hours of sleep, drink plenty of water to flush out toxins, watch your diet to see if any foods spark breakouts and check if certain facial or hair products are irritating skin. Avoid sugary drinks and foods.

Temples/Eyebrows/Between Brows

Acne in the area around the eyes can be due to poor circulation, gallbladder problems or diets too high in fat, processed foods or alcohol. Again, water intake is essential as is watching one’s diet and hygiene practices.


Acne on the nose can be due to poor diet, constipation, bloating, gastrointestinal imbalance, indigestion or poor blood circulation. Vitamin B, less seasoned foods and massaging the nose area can alleviate acne there.


The left cheek can be faced with breakouts due to the lungs, liver issues, overeating, stress, stomach problems, dirty cell phones, dirty pillowcases or dirty makeup brushes. It’s important to keep the skin clean every day, especially if your environment is a polluted one. Frequently change pillowcases and wipe screens of cell phones. Remain relaxed with a normal daily schedule.

Mouth/Lip Area

Acne here can be caused by constipation, an excess of spicy or fried foods and a reaction to a certain toothpaste. An increased intake of fiber, fruits and vegetables can help skin here.


Acne here can be caused by hormonal problems, gynecological issues, kidney imbalance, too frequent hands to skin contact or toothpaste type. Again, rest and water intake helps plenty. You can take omega-3s to keep hormones in balance. Be aware to not rest face in hands, unless hands are thoroughly cleaned.


The ears are closely related to the kidneys. If kidneys are not functioning properly or receiving enough nutrients or water, large and persistent pimples can appear on the ear’s surface. To avoid this, it’s recommended to drink enough water, avoiding excess caffeine and salt.
