Acne on your forehead can either come from your shampoo, conditioner, or any hair products that you place on your head that tends to sneakily drip down your forehead. Another reason could be because of your diet and unwanted stress. One easy way to treat forehead pimples? Drink more water to eliminate toxins in your body.

Nose

Your nose is directly connected to your liver and heart, so if you get pimples on your nose, watch what you eat and drink because it could be the underlying cause for your nose breakouts! Lessen your salty food intake and munch on veggies instead. Make sure to watch for expired makeup or dirty brushes that could be clogging your pores, too.

Cheeks

Your cheeks are linked to your lungs, which means anything dirty you may have inhaled such as air pollution or smoke may be the cause for your breakout. Clean your cellphone and pillow sheets regularly since these could be zit culprits as well.

Chin

The most common area on your face to get acne is on your chin due to hormonal imbalance or changes in your body such as taking pills or when you are about to get your period. Eating healthier and drinking more water can help clear this up!
