Hormonal Acne Vs. Stress Acne
Wondering if your acne is stress-induced or hormonal? Here are the 3 main areas to focus on to help you find out which type of acne you’re dealing with. (1) The root cause. (2) Location. (3) Timing. It’s recommended you pay close attention to the location of your breakout because hormonal acne often appears around the chin or jawline. In contrast, stress-induced acne often shows up in the form of a large zit on the forehead. Timing is also essential because your monthly hormones can make your stress levels increase closer to menstruation.
