This state is so beautiful when it’s not raining. It’s amazing what a little sunlight can do to your mood.

- Forehead. Breakouts across the forehead are often triggered by stress or sleep deprivation. Make sure to log 7 to 9 hours of beauty rest a night to keep your forehead clear.
- Above the brow. The area above the brow is affected by your immune system. Breakouts here tend to happen right before, after, or during a cold or flu. If you notice a breakout in this zone, slow down for a couple days, drink plenty of water and eat these 10 immune boosting foods.
- Between brows. Breakouts between the brows can be caused by overindulgence of unhealthy foods or a food allergy. Cutting back on sugar, dairy, rich foods, and alcohol can help clear up skin in this zone.
- Cheeks. Your cheeks are linked to your respiratory system. Smoking or breathing polluted air can cause breakouts here.
- Side of chin. The sides of your chin are affected by hormones. Breakouts here occur around the time of your period and happen on one side or another depending on which ovary is ovulating that month.
I found this face map on Lauren Conrad’s lifestyle website really interesting, especially because I suffer from hormonal breakouts every single month. The side which I breakout on varies depending on which ovary I am ovulating from and while I’m happy that my body is doing what it should, I could do without the painful and ugly flare-up that comes every month, without fail!
As well, I have definitely experienced breakouts on my forehead after too many days of too little sleep or a very indulgent weekend.
Anyone have any thoughts to add?
If it’s true, the ovulating fact is interesting. I always wondered why it seemed like I’d only break out on one side. I’d attribute it to the way I slept until that side would clear up and then I’d break out on the other side some considerable amount of time later.
