PeacefulChaos Posted December 16, 2011 Share Posted December 16, 2011 So I'm 29 years old and I have NEVER broken out like this before. EVER. When I was a teenager I had maybe 1-2 pimples at a time, not all the time. Maybe it was cyclical - I didn't really pay attention at the time. Well, for the last few months I've been breaking out terribly. Particularly on my chin/jawbone and a little on my forehead. I think the forehead is from my bangs - I got a new shampoo that I feel weighs my hair down a little, and plan on switching soon, plus I'm growing out the bangs. But the chin...it's just awful. I have read that breakouts on the chin are hormonal, but this is ALL the time, not lined up with my cycle at all. I have no reason that I can think of to have any other hormonal changes- I'm only 29 (no menopause anytime soon), I'm not on birth control (had tubes tied 2.5 years ago), and am not pregnant (obviously :lol:). I thought it was this new makeup I had gotten about 3 months ago, but then I went back to my usual stuff (bare escentuals mineral foundation) and it didn't go away. It's progressively worse - or, at the very least, just as bad. I wash my face with DHC deep cleansing oil at night and Cetaphil in the morning in the shower. This is the same stuff I used last year and my face was great. I'm just at a loss. It's driving me insane, and it's embarrassing. :glare: What can I do? :confused: Any ideas?? :bigear: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
