I'm a 41 y/o with adult acne.  I seem to get flareups at very unusual
times, not necessarily related to my menstrual cycle. Could there be a
relationship btwn the occasional use of xanax and acnes flare-ups. 
(esp on cheeks,jawline and neck)
There is no answer at this time.

If you are taking Xanax for anxiety, it's possible that the anxiety
may be the cause of your acne flare-ups.

stress and anxiety can worsen acne, my friends and I always have
flare-ups before and during finals.
I use xanax too but it doesn't affect my acne, in fact there were
times when i was taking xanax and was completely acne free!
