Forehead acne is the most annoying because it is the most visible area of your face. Preventing acne breakout is easy if you know its causes. This article will tackle the causes of forehead acne and its treatment. Acne can develop in a part of your face and body. It usually occurs when the tiny glands below the skin surface are blocked. Acne breakouts are often caused by hormonal changes, stress, and poor hygiene. Its appearance does not only make you look unattractive, untidy, but also it will cause you discomfort. If not treated, acne will lead to a cyst. And just like acne that develops in other parts of your body like shoulder, back, and further details, forehead acne has the same causing factors. Below are certain factors that can lead to forehead acne breakout.

  1. Hormonal imbalance – when androgen increases sebum production due to the absence of estrogen, it causes pore-clogging, which will later lead to the development of acne. Hormonal change in puberty is one of the causes of acne flares.
  2. Stress – Though there were no scientific explanations that it causes acne flares, it has been included as one of the factors of acne flares. Situations like when you are stressed, you cannot sleep due to overthinking. It has been experienced by many, and they claimed that it caused them acne breakout.
  3. Certain drugs or medication –   some people react to certain medicines. Medicines like steroids, anticonvulsants, and lithium can cause acne in some people.
  4. Poor hygiene – if you don’t wash your hair and face regularly, the oil deposits and dust can cause blockage in your forehead, leading to acne. And also, if you are using hair products such as oils or gels, these will cause acne breakout if not properly washed off.
  5. Skin irritation – wearing hats, makeup, and frequently touching your forehead with dirty hands can irritate your skin, leading to acne breakout.

What Can You Do To Treat Forehead Acne?

For mild forehead acne, simple home remedies will work. Frequent washing your face before sleeping to remove dirt and makeup is enough. If it does not work for you, try applying lemon or lime juice to dry up the acne. If these home remedies still won’t work on your acne, then it is time that you need to ask for advice from your dermatologist. There are counter medicines that will treat your acne. These acne treatments can be in the form of gel, cream, soap, or liquid astringent. The efficacy of these treatments varies for each individual. Some treatments will work on others but not for you. So it is best to consult your dermatologist for the proper treatment. Because if you keep on changing products to try which one will work on your acne, it might cause you a bigger problem. It can damage your skin even more.

Final Words

Our forehead is the most exposed part of our face. It is exposed to dust and heat. To prevent an acne breakout:

  • Avoid the factors that can trigger its development.
  • Always practice proper hygiene, like washing your face daily and your hair.
  • Do not touch your face or forehead with a dirty hand.

Your diet is also linked to acne breakouts. So it is helpful if you avoid foods that can worsen your existing acne.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
