If you’re suffering from breakouts around your chin, pesky hormones are probably to blame. Here’s what you can do about it
You’re an adult. You can vote. You can legally drink alcohol. You can rent a car. You might even have children. And yet you’re breaking out like a teenager. What gives?
Well, if your acne is located on your chin, jawline or around your mouth, then you’re not actually breaking out like a teenager at all — you’re breaking out like the grown woman you are.
According to New York City dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, MD, the “goatee of acne” (an unattractive name he came up with for the equally unattractive condition of chin acne) primarily affects women over 25 — and it’s common.
Fortunately, there are products and treatments that can get rid of chin acne. Heed our advice, and soon enough you’ll be back to worrying about wrinkles like a grownup.
