Getting pimples on your chin can be very painful and at the same time look hideous. It's the most common spot on the face to get acne. Women often experience these breakouts before their periods, but if it's happening more than often, it might indicate something!
Hormonal acne occurs first around the mouth, chin and jaw line. This hormonal acne comes and goes throughout the menstrual cycle. The breakouts commonly appear during the ovulation or just before your period begins. Other hormonal reasons for acne your chin can be pregnancy, birth-control pills and puberty stages for some. While if your acne comes more than often, it may indicate that you're dealing with severe PCOS. In this case, you should always consult a dermatologist.
Apart from the hormonal reasons, your make-up use can cause breakouts too. Lip balms, lipsticks, glosses may contain few ingredients that encourage breakouts on your chin. Sometimes even your nail paint can cause this—as many people have a habit of touching their chin too often. So, if you notice persistent zits after applying make-up, try to identify the product and stop using it.
