All You Need to Know about Jawline Acne
If you are suffering from jawline acne, there are ways to prevent and treat it if you have the desire to do so. Acne affects one out of every three people at some stage in their life, most commonly during teenage years but unfortunately can last well into adulthood. Pimples, blemishes, everything accumulating and causing acne is always embarrassing and very tricky to understand where it is coming from. Many factors can cause acne such as hormones, clogged pores, dirt, overproduced sebum and other reasons so it is tricky to find the perfect cure for acne.
How Jawline Acne Affects You
Maybe you are finding that you are breaking out in one certain area every time. Some people get acne in their T-zone, some get texture issues in their cheeks and a lot of people are affected by jawline acne. Big red bumps lining the chin and jaw can be uncomfortable, embarrassing and affect your self-esteem. Jawline acne is often worse than pimples in other areas because it can ruin the contour of your face. It draws the attention from your best feature such as your eyes and directs it straight to your chin and jaw area where the acne is.
Quick Fixes for Jawline Acne
Acne is never easy to get rid of, but there are some quick and simple steps you can take to treat jawline acne.
- If you wear a helmet or any type of hat with a chin strap, be sure to take it off occasionally to allow the skin to breathe. Wash the area after every use.
- Use a mirror to visually check the area around the jaw, under the chin and neckline to make sure it remains clean and acne-free. Often time acne can appear because that area is easily neglected.
- If you wear any dental appliance, daily or nightly, be sure it is properly applied and not rubbing on the jawline area causing stress to the skin and clogging pores.
Smoking and Acne
Many studies have shown that smoking can also cause jawline acne. The smoke around the mouth area clogs pores and causes blackheads and whiteheads to appear, leading to visibly noticeable acne.

It is also important to take extra care cleaning the jawline, chin and neck because those areas are easily missed while washing your face. Wash with an acne-fighting cleanser and be mindful when you wash your face and shower so as to not miss these pertinent areas if you want to prevent and treat jawline acne. Don’t rub chin straps against your skin without cleansing afterward, make sure any dental work is properly fitted so as to not cause stress on the jaw, and don’t doze off at school or during a meeting with your chin in your hands, clogging up your pores and leading to breakouts!
