Acne on the forehead – bladder and small intestine problems
Pimples and rashes on the forehead might be caused by excessive consumption of alcohol, processed food and high levels of stress. If this is the case, we recommend stopping the consumption of alcohol, staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water and getting proper rest overnight. Eat a healthy balanced diet as well and you will eliminate the skin problems on your forehead.
Acne on the mouth and chin – hormonal imbalance
Dehydration can cause serious problems in the body such as hormonal imbalance which can lead to chin and mouth problems. Salty and too much seasoned food, too much coffee and other factors can also cause skin problems on your mouth and chin, so stay away from too much coffee and spices until they clear up.
Acne between the eyebrows – liver problems
When you eat processed and junk food often, your liver won’t be able to function as it should, resulting in the appearance of acne and pimples between the eyebrows.

Take yoga classes, go swimming or dancing or go for a walk in order to boost your overall health and prevent the appearance of acne between your eyebrows.

Neck and jaw acne – stomach problems
