After months of procrastinating to get a new prescription, I finally splurged on a pair of glasses I absolutely love. But with them came a surprise: acne.
It seemed like there was a new pimple on the bridge of my nose basically every other day. Because I hadn't been wearing my old glasses and because those pimples always appeared in that specific spot, my beautiful new glasses were unfortunately the primary suspect.

Sure, being able to see is cool and all, but wouldn't it be great if it didn't also cause breakouts? Yes! It would!!! In fact, I talked to an expert about how to deal with this exact situation. Here's what I learned.

How to know if it's actually acne
The biggest clue that your glasses are causing acne is where the acne is showing up, Laura Ferris, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor in the department of dermatology at the University of Pittsburgh, tells SELF. The bridge of your nose, your cheeks where the rims sit, and the ears where they might rub are all common places.
