Pimple breakouts are not just for teenagers and as adults it can be our body telling us something.

There are many health reasons that could be the cause of adult pimple – and it all depends on where they pop up!

Face mapping is a tool that can assist you in getting rid of those annoying spots and it could also help you identify health problems you didn’t even know about.

  • I always get cystic acne along my jawline during that time of the month, I know they are hormone breakouts.


  • This is so informative i have always attributed my nose pimples to hormones but it makes complete sense that it would be dietary since i eat so much crap during my time of the month haha


  • I get breakouts on my chin during that time of the month and also if I’ve eaten to much sugar. So its both hormonal and dietary for me


  • My breakouts are usually stress related though too when hormonal.


  • I always get period pimples on my chin!


  • This is so handy to know!
    Thanks so much for sharing


  • I’ve had more breakouts in my 30s than I did up until my early twenties and prior to having my son.


  • Well according to that picture, it could mean just about anything. Then factor in hormones.


  • I had shocking cystic acne in my teens. A course of Roaccutane at 18 fixed things for a few years. I had my first baby at 23 and this seemed to set the acne off again. Nothing worked long term. Another course of Roaccutane at age 45. Still doing ok with just a few blackheads and white heads, no more cysts touch wood


  • I get breakouts around my chin area, probably hormonal after having the kids everything is a bit off. Haha! But I also found that using some toothpastes especially whitening ones made it worse and after I changed it has definately helped.


  • Hmm i Can definitly relate to some of these food related pimple spots and often assume it’s my diet.


  • Goodness my my breakout are all over my face…


  • back and shoulders lol no help to me


  • I thought the ones on the chin were stress. Go figure.


  • I developed post-natal acne that is absolutely hormonal. It took a while, and trial-and-error for everyone to figure out what was going on. I’ve been on medication and tried many things. We’ve discovered the pill, Diane, fixes the problem! Recently I took a 6-month break from the pill, only for the large welts and breakouts to re-occur, so back onto the pill I am!
