Does anyone have any recommendations for products to clear jawline/chin acne? I'm trying to conceive and have been off birth control for almost a year now and my skin is breaking out and I get white heads and blackheads constantly now.

It's caused me to have extended periods that are still as heavy as before. Also, the weight gain from water retention has been awful.
