MP! Style Guide: What do your pimples say about your health?

Pimples are the bane of every teenager’s life, but did you know that they’re closely linked to your health and can reveal a lot about what’s going on in your body?pimple

Don’t worry though, skin problems are common and even happen to mega celebs like Kendall Jenner. We’re here to help you understand what your body’s trying to tell you through your spots.

Have a look at the chart below and keep reading to find out exactly what’s causing your breakouts.


Zone 1

Pimples on your chin, jawline or neck often mean you’re getting your period. Hormones fluctuate throughout your cycle and an excess of oil means your pores can get clogged, causing breakouts.

Zone 2

Pimples near your hairline can mean you’ve applied product too close to your scalp or you’re touching this area too much. Avoid greasy products, always wash your hands and try not to touch your face.

Zone 3

Pimples near your mouth are often a result of your diet. To solve this problem area, stay away from greasy or acidic foods.  Goodbye McDonald’s and every other junk food that tastes nice. RIP us.

Zone 4

If you’re getting pimples on your cheeks, it’s probably because you’ve touched your face with a dirty phone or your hands. A lot of germs get transferred that way and can cause bacteria to get in your skin.

Zone 5

T-Zone breakouts are usually a sign of stress. When you lose your chill, your body releases adrenaline which triggers oil production particularly around these areas. Must. Stay. Calm.
