Women’s Health Discusses Forehead Acne With Dr. Green
Women’s Health investigates forehead acne in their recent article “What Causes Forehead Acne And How to Get Rid of It, According To Dermatologists”. Forehead acne, being quite visible can become a source of annoyance. Dr. Green explains that acne forms when oil glands are blocked with excess sebum. She states “When too much oil is produced combined with an excess of bacteria or dead skin cell build-up, the pores become clogged and prevent the oil from leaving the pore properly”.
Genetics can be a cause of forehead acne, as well as changes in hormones. When fungus and bacteria get into the forehead pores, this can cause an unwanted breakout. When it comes to treating forehead acne, there is one rule to follow which is no picking. Exfoliating, retinols, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid and retinoids can all help with forehead acne. However if it’s persistent, make sure to schedule an appointment with a dermatologist, such as Dr. Green, who will be able to tailor your acne treatment.
