Why PCOS Cystic Acne Concentrates At Cheeks, Jawline, Chin, And Upper Neck?
PCOS-related acne tends to flare in areas that are usually considered “hormonally sensitive,” especially the lower third of the face. This includes your cheeks, jawline, chin, and upper neck.

So far you have learned the reasons behind your acne problem. But still, you are not clear how you can get rid of your PCOS cystic acne completely. Before I dwell on this topic, I want you to know few important things to keep your acne under control. Otherwise, the situation worsens.
Factors That Worsen Acne
These factors can trigger or aggravate an existing case of acne:
Hormones. Androgens are hormones that increase in boys and girls during puberty and cause the sebaceous glands to enlarge and make more sebum. Hormonal changes related to pregnancy and the use of oral contraceptives also can affect sebum production. And low amounts of androgens circulate in the blood of women and can worsen acne. In my article hormonal imbalance and pcos – Three must follow principles, I have discussed more about this topic.
Certain medications. Drugs containing corticosteroids, androgens or lithium can worsen acne.
Diet. Studies indicate that certain dietary factors, including dairy products and carbohydrate-rich foods — such as bread, bagels and chips — may trigger acne. Chocolate has long been suspected of making acne worse. A recent study of 14 men with acne showed that eating chocolate was related to an increase in acne. Further study is needed to examine why this happens or whether acne patients need to follow specific dietary restrictions. Know more from my latest article 7 foods you don’t believe that cure PCOS

If your acne is not severe, no specific treatment is required. You can follow simple tips to clear away your PCOS cystic acne.
Tips To Cure PCOS Cystic Acne:
1. Stay away from the stress by following meditations, yoga, deep breathing exercises and other related exercises which keep you stress free.
2. Always resist the temptation to squeeze the acne cyst as it not only increases the chance of becoming deeper infection but also left scars when cystic acne get cured.
3. Avoid excessive sweating and clean your face and other acne affected parts of the body after doing exercise or any other activity to clean the sweat. Sweat will cause pores to be clogged and more susceptible to cystic acne.
4. Take sufficient sleep of at least 7 – 8 hours to have a healthy and glowing skin.
5. Decrease friction as it also irritates your skin and increases the problem of cystic acne.
6. Daily wash your face once or twice with warm water and a mild cleanser to remove the oil and dirt that causes cystic acne worse. But make sure to avoid drying out the skin which causes irritation so apply moisturizer after every wash.
7. Avoid using oily and greasy cosmetic products which increases to cystic acne.
8. It’s best to remove the makeup before going to bed. Just wash it off before going to bed as it reduces the risk of clogged pores.
9. Turmeric, ginger and boswellia are three natural herbs that contain anti-inflammatory properties which help to heal the cystic acne. So, take these three herbs in your known forms to get rid of the problem.
10. Avoid drinking and smoking habits as this will make the cystic acne worse and reduces the change of curing the acne. Click Here To Read More!
