How do I get clean and acne clear skin without any spots?

Dear Patient

From the picture, it seems that your hair could be the culprit because the pimples are concentrated on the side of your forehead which comes in contact with it.

Forehead Acne Prevention

To prevent forehead acne you should:

Keep your hair off your face

Avoid fringes and style your hair so that it does not touch your forehead.

Shampoo hair frequently

If you have oily hair, shampoo it frequently.

Keep hair care products off your face

Ensure that your hair care products do not come in contact with the skin on your face since they can clog the pores and cause forehead acne.

Therefore ensure that they do not trickle down after you apply them and use a face shield when spraying the products onto your hair.

Wash headgear and pillows frequently

Wash your hats and other headgear frequently to prevent hair oils from clogging the pores on your face. Washing your pillows at least once a week can also prevent the reapplication  of the hair oils onto your face as you sleep.

Use an acne cleanser and moisturizer

Use a face wash and moisturizer that contains an ingredient that treats acne. For example, you can use Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash  which contains salicylic acid to wash your face and follow this by using Clean and clear oil free moisturizer  which also contains salicylic acid.

Adopt an Acne-Free Lifestyle

Adopt an acne-free lifestyle by doing the following:

*Joining a smoking cessation program if you smoke cigarettes

*Cleaning your mobile phone with antiseptic wipes regularly

*Eating low glycemic index foods like whole grain bread, spinach, and tomatoes. To learn more read How to Treat Acne at Home.
