Why Do We Get Spots?

THE CAUSES

I remember reading into this a while back and it was very interesting! Recently, a colleague brought it up and we spent a good hour talking about it. I had found this face chart from Into the Gloss and thought it was surprising as to how accurate this relates to me and possibly everyone. Also I love the illustration and wanted to share it with you. I’m not going to go into the science of this.

I do get spots anywhere on my face ranging from the small to the big deep ones. Looking at this face map and thinking about my spots, I have noticed the following. Whenever I consume a lot of sugar, starchy foods or it’s the time of the month, I always break out on the chin. During my teens, puberty was the biggest factor for all the spots on my T-Zone. Now that puberty ended long ago, stress, alcohol and poor blood circulation are now the factors and I always get those painful spots peeking through in the T-Zone.

It all makes sense now!

Can you relate to this chart?

    This is really helpful and I think it is true. When I have eaten more foods that contain processed sugars then I get spots on my chin :S

  5. Eva H says:

    I used to get a lot on my cheeks, which is why I lie down on my back now!

    I've seen lots of these on Pinterest, I can't relate only due to my health conditions being different from where my spots are if I was to look at it from this chart's point of view but it's still interesting though.

    Hugs Michelle

    While I think I'm lucky to have gotten good genes from both my parents, I find this chart informative and helpful. It still does help to eat in moderation and to have proper skincare hygiene.

  11. Kim Style says:

    I never touch my cheek unlesss when I'm washing them and I'm not using cellhpone.. lol could u believe that? but sometimes I still get spots on my cheek >.< thanks for sharing 🙂

  12. Sin Yee says:

    Sometimes we just cant get ourselves not to touch our face. Awww… that's why got a lot of spots

  13. OY HZ says:

    Agree! I get those on the chin whenever menses are nearing.. Hormonal changes T.T

  14. Fred Hawson says:

    Touching the face with dirty hands happens more often than we think. We really have to be conscious to avoid this bad habit.

  15. Esha says:

    That's an informative chart.. I think a dirty pillow cover and cellphone could really cause spots & breakout. 🙁

  18. Sana Sadiq says:

    I'd read those reasons some time ago and I completely agree the reasons you'd mentioned above. Thank you for sharing x

  19. Tiffany Yong W.T. says:

    I get it all over, which basically means I have a bit of the above stated problems. 🙁

  20. Alissa says:

    If only I could get rid of my spots. Oil in your face really is a nuisance but then again, I have dry skin

  21. Rem Lucio says:

    So true! Annoying especially when you're a teenager!

  22. Laura - Alagoz says:

    I'm guilty touching my face, but I try to work on it….Thanks for sharing! x

  23. Louise Banta says:

    This is indeed quite accurate since I've been having spots in my chin. I guess it's because of hormonal imbalance… it's actually my illness. Now it explains it. Been wondering for a couple of months for it. Thanks for sharing!

  24. Danica Reed says:

    Why the bacteria from Cellphone? I never touched my face with it. hehe

  25. Vanessa says:

    I always wondered what can cause spots to my chin because I regularly clean my face but now I find out this is due to processing sugar cause I love eating sweets in bulk quantities lol!

  26. Eliz Obih-Frank says:

    The information on the cheeks was fascinating and true. I wonder how name more people get acne from endlessly putting dirty phones next to their faces.

  27. beautyqueenuk says:

    Interesting graphic, I only ever get spots on my chin if I get them x

  28. Franc says:

    I can relate to some items in the chart. This could help you rid of habits that causes spots.

    I always get spots when I don't take off my makeup properly. Stress is also a major spot trigger for me.

    Oh!~ Now that we know the cause of the spots, we can try to get rid of it.. 🙂

  33. Kelly McKenny says:

    It does seem to make sense – I better stay away from processed sugar, my jawline is my worst area for it!
