"What is best for skin that breaks out on the jaw line and has few fine lines?"
  • Print

Skin that breaks out along the jaw is generally hormonal. If you notice a pattern when the breakouts occur, it may be a drop in estrogen hormones and a rise in testosterone (this is common in many people). You could try switching to acne-based products a few days before you normally see the breakouts and this may help keep them down, if not gone. Some ingredients that would be great to try are Kaolin, Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic Acid, Menthol, Camphor and Tea Tree Oil. In regards to fine lines, increase the hydration in that area with ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid and Sodium PCA. And you can always have your hormones checked by a doctor. Also, breakouts on the jaw line can relate to stress and the Adrenal glands, so try to calm your stress levels if this is a factor. If your breakouts are not just on the jaw line but are elsewhere, it may relate to your current skin care regimen or make-up. Visit a skin therapist to make sure your skin is not dehydrated and that your daily skin care regimen is working to your best benefit!
