How to find out if your face is slimming
Slimmer faces have been found to be more susceptible to acne.
It can be linked to the skin condition, but the exact cause is still unknown.
A study in the Journal of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, published in October, looked at the role of the hormone estradiol (E2) in skin aging.
Researchers used a facial-dermatology test, a form of self-assessment known as the facial-skin test.
In the study, researchers found that those with the least skin thickness at the base of the nose were more likely to have the most acne-prone skin, and the least-thinned skin, on average.
They also found that people with thinner skin had a higher chance of acne than those with thicker skin.
The study found that it’s possible that a person’s skin type can impact the chances of developing acne.
However, it’s unclear what factors contribute to the severity of acne.
For some people, acne may be a sign of a skin disorder, such as eczema.
But for most, it can be caused by a combination of factors, including genetics, hormonal changes, and lifestyle factors.
