Pimples, on any part of the face, are really nagging. No one likes a pimple on one’s face because it looks ugly. A person loses his or her confidence when having an irritable pimple or acne on the skin.
One of the toughest spots where you get acne and which is even more difficult to treat, is the chin. These painful zits can keep popping up over and over again and seem to multiply overnight. Similarly, pimples on the chin are unwanted to all of us. Although many commercial products available in the market promise to heal the problem from its root, they have the least effect on pimples on the chin. Improper application of these anti-acne products might darken your skin while leaving it dull and discolored.
While most people believe that the hormones are the root cause of acne, there are actually few measures that can help you reduce and remove acne effectively.
Natural Preventives For Chin Pimples
Pimples are a common but nagging skin problem. You can hardly prevent the spate of a pimple attack when you are not conscious enough. No wonder, a person with oily skin needs to be more careful in order to prevent acne and pimples from popping up. It is always better to prevent such skin infections rather than heal them. A single pimple on chin may give birth to a number of others, if the infection spreads with time. Therefore, take care of your skin from the beginning.

Measures To Prevent Acne
If you want to reduce the zits on your chin and jawline, here are some of the practices you should adopt in your everyday skin care regime.
- Wash your face just twice a day. If you wash it more often, you will strip the oils from your skin. This will put the oil glands into a hyperdrive to produce more sebum. So, wash your face once in the morning and once at night. Only make an exception to this routine if your face is dirty or you have spent time at the gym sweating it out. Use an alcohol-free soap to wash your chin. Use gentle massaging motions to apply the soap, and then wash it off with lukewarm water. Use a separate towel for your face to pat it dry.
- Many times, you spread acne by touching your oily hair and transferring the oil to your chin by touching the chin with the same hand. If you have oily hair, wash your hair every night using a shampoo, specially formulated for oily hair. If you have long hair, keep it tied, so that it does not come in touch with your chin.
- Many young girls and women use makeup to mask acne on their chin. You too can do it as long as the makeup is non-comedogenic or non-acnegenic. Try to use powder-based makeup rather than oil or cream-based makeup to prevent further clogging of your pores. Make it a point to remove all the makeup from your face before retiring to bed. Pay special attention to your chin. Apply a water-based moisturizer after cleansing your face.
- Do not forget to apply an acne cleansing product on your face, especially on your chin. Ensure that the product contains salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. In fact, you can also use two different products – one with salicylic acid and the other with benzoyl peroxide. This combination therapy often works better than the single product therapy.
- Never ever scratch your zits. This can worsen your acne and may result in infection. Remember, if your acne gets infected, the chances of scarring are very high.
- Avoid extra oily foods. Egg yolk is a prime cause behind the popping up of pimples. Avoid having more than three egg yolks a week. Add a lot of antioxidants, green vegetables, fresh fruits and plenty of water into your regular diet chart.
- Wash your mouth and the chin area generously after eating food. Wipe the area with an astringent-wet tissue frequently when you are out in the sun and dust.
- Do use a very high SPF sunblock lotion every time you step out in the sun. Apply the sunscreen at least half an hour before getting out.
