There are various reasons why breakouts occur on the forehead – from lifestyle choices to hormonal changes, diet problems, environmental issues, skincare products’ sensitivity, a lack of sleep…the list goes on.
In this article, we’ll explore some potential causes of breakouts that might be hidden deep within our daily routine and environment. So hold onto your hats (or should I say hairbands) as we take an entertaining look at possible culprits behind those pesky pimples!
#1: Your hair
We all love long luscious locks/ short stylish flicks, but did you know they could potentially cause acne? The natural oils from your scalp can accumulate on your hair follicles and slide-down creating the perfect environment for clogged pores. Friction between hair and skin can produce heat resulting in more sebum production triggering redness and inflammation.
Properly cleansing regularly while washing off anything that touches your face e.g., headbands, hats/helmets or sunglasses] noticeably reduces such occurrences.
Try exploring hairstyles that keep strands away from your face:
Ah hormones… They always seem to find ways of taking over our body’s functions without us noticing -It’s almost like having beer-goggles except with ‘Pre-menstrual symptoms’. Hormonal imbalances cause increased oil gland activity appearing in oily foreheads which attracts dirt into enlarged pores eventually leading to painful cystic/bumpy breakouts – just what one needs prior date night!
Seeking advice from a dermatologist or Ob-Gyn if the issue is more significant helps to solve physical, emotional and hormonal problems.
Hormonal therapy/BC pills may be prescribed- Yay for clearer skin
#3: Unhealthy Diet
As the saying goes… ‘You are what you eat’. Fried greasy unhealthy foods can disrupt digestion resulting in poor gut health leading to acne. Not consuming [enough,nutritious] food can also trigger this problem.
Try incorporating healthy fruits/vegetable as part of dietary supplements.
– Kiwi fruit
– leafy greens such as spinach & kale
Examples of meals that fight breaking out:
Avocado and Tuna salad w/Cucumbers or Bacon wrapped chicken with Garlic Roasted broccoli.
Chronic stress personifies roadblocks from everyday routines, emotions become high strung requiring heavy alleviation alternatives disrupting hormones leaving you open wide on a road rife with tensions for forehead breakouts. It’s essential to know steps/people that provide coping mechanisms when things get heated in life e.g., therapy sessions, meditation practises etcetera.
Here are some methods to solve tension buildup:
-Learn Problem solving skills
-Schedule Work-out classes/dailies
-Have good balance between work/sleep time/workout sessions
