I’m normally blessed with pretty good skin, but recently I’ve started getting quite a few spots on my forehead. So it got me thinking: why do we get spots? After a bit of research I discovered that the location of your spots can tell you a lot about why you’re getting them… (for me it looks like a sudden bout of overeating on cheese and chocolate might be the culprit!)
Spots on your forehead
This could be because of having a fringe: while a fringe helps hide a spotty forehead it can also make it worse from hair products and sweat Also they can indicate bad diet high in saturated fat and alcohol – so a bit of a detox could help
Spots on your cheeks
This can be because of too much meat, sugar and dairy products – try replacing with veggies and fruit to see if it makes a difference.
Spots on your chin
Spots on the chin can be hormonal, so if you get them once a month they really could be ‘period spots’ which often occur arround period or ovulation time.
Whatever the reason for your spots, the advice remains the same: DON’T SQUEEZE THEM! and use medicated products to treat and conceal.
