Is Acne Related To Digestive Problems?
Want to ask whether the exact location of acne can indicate what problems occur in our body? Like things that grow a lot of pimples on the chin he said is caused by our being stressed and hormones are not stable then the pimples on the forehead indicate digestive problems .. Is that true?
Thank you for the question.
Acne is a multifactorial condition. Its appearance is much influenced by hormonal factors, stress, genetics, personal hygiene, diet, certain skin care, and also the health condition of patients in general. Acne tends to appear in a particular area of the body usually because of the many pilosebaceous glands found in that skin area. So, it is not right to conclude a person's health condition based only on the location of the zit.
If you have zits, to get better quickly, you can do the following:
Avoid forcibly squeezing, stabbing, or exfoliating acne
Be diligent in washing your face with mild cleansing soap specially formulated to treat acne prone skin
After washing your face, gently dry your natural skin, not rubbing excessively
First apply sunscreen and moisturizer on your skin before activating
Do not carelessly use anti-acne creams or ointments without consulting a doctor first
Don't use cosmetics that are too thick, especially around areas with acne
Limit physical activity in the hot sun, or in dirty and polluted environments
Always live a healthy lifestyle, including by drinking, sleeping and waking up more regularly, don't stress, and multiply eating vegetables and fruits that are good for nourishing the skin
If the acne has not improved with the above treatment, you should check yourself directly to the doctor or dermatologist for further treatment.
I hope this helps.
