Re: Serious breakout, what causes you to breakout?
It could be genetics/heredity. Look at your family, did they break out in certain spots you never did until recently? (I remeber when my cheeks started breaking out *I was shocked!* but then I learned my mom had the same problem as a teen...too bad we can't change that
). Or maybe you are allergic/reacting to something...like certian foods/clothing fabric/pet fur/plants/perfumes/scented body creams? Any hairspray/gel/mousse or hair near your skin/face like bangs *fringe* or long hair?
Do you ever "pop" your pimples? that can spread germs around your face if not done correctly and cause more breakouts.
It could also be the weather...when it's hot you sweat, the sweat can cause you to break out (like your back or forehead, it sinks into your pores if you don't wipe it off with a clean towel, or simply shower)...do you ever exercise with makeup on
? Try to wear cotton shirts/clothes as much as possible to let your skin breathe. The environment we live in can play a part in it, like all the smoke in the air or dirt (if you live in sandy/desert areas).
Obvious reason is when "aunt flow" visits every month (the hormones and chemical inbalaces) or just everyday stress. Maybe any medication/drug you are taking? maybe more than one that reacts to the other?
Do you eat food with natural oils in them? (like avocado and nuts?) Or drink alcohol? *it dehidrates your body/skin*
There are alooot of factors as to why people break out but my advice would be just to drink aloooot of water to detoxify yourself naturally and help your body *and skin* stay hydrated...so when you eat something "bad", balance it with water! And NEVER touch your face during the day when your hands are dirty... I noticed I use to do this while sitting on a desk, I'd rest my hand on my chin. Remember: Pimples are a way for your body to get rid of *detoxify* all the "bad" things in your body/skin. Hope this helps!
I am not an expert/professional skin specialist.
This is merely my

sooo much with acne/pimples over the years.
