Pimples On Forehead – Causes


Clogged Pores

Clogged pores[1] are the main reason for pimples to occur. Once your skin pores get locked, they cannot release the sebum secreted in your skin. It also leads to an insufficient supply of oxygen to your skin cells. So, this will eventually get developed into a pimple on your skin. Clogged pores can be caused due to buildups in the skin or dead skin cells.

Increased Sebum Production

Sebum is a type of oil that is being secreted in your skin. When this sebum secretion gets increased in your skin, it leads to the occurrence of pimples[2] on your skin. They get locked inside the pores on your skin. As a result, swelling occurs and will further lead to redness and irritations. This sebum production is caused due to various factors like food, usage of skin care products and improper hygiene.

Hormones

Hormones can play a vital role in causing pimples on your skin. The two hormones namely testosterone and estrogen are directly connected with the pimples. Thus you tend to get a lot of pimples during the three important stages of your life. The stages are periods, pregnancy and puberty. An imbalance in the number of hormones getting secreted can also cause pimples[3] on your skin.

Genetics

Genetics could be a causing factor for pimples on your skin. If you have a history of acne in your family, then obviously you will be getting it. Pimples and acne have the ability to get transferred through your genes. Genes are the factors that determine most of the top qualities and functions of your skin. It determines your skin sensitivity, amount of sebum secretion and how actively it works against infectious agents. So, the development and the occurrence of pimples will be based on these qualities of your skin.

Stress And Depression

It is observed that stress can influence the secretion of sebum in your body. The sebaceous glands in our body contain the receptors for the stress hormones in our body. So when you get stressed, the amount of sebum secretion gets increased to a greater extent. So, you tend to get pimples on your skin.

Another cause could be depression. When you get depressed, the pimples or acne in your skin gets aggravated. So, your skin gets prone to acne infections as soon as you get depressed. So, stress and depression together can make a pimple to become worse when your skin is already infected.

Lack Of Sleep

You might think that sleep does not have any connection with acne[4]. But, sleep is directly connected with the hormone secretions in your body. Lack of sleep can disturb the hormone secretion and make it reduced. This will lead to a reduction in the secretion of those hormones that actively fight against pimples. So, your skin becomes more prone to infections and pimples. It also disturbs your mental health leading to stress. They also make your skin to look very dull.

Cosmetics

The chemicals and the oils used in cosmetics can cause pimples on your skin. When you have sensitive skin, this could be a major acne causing factor. Certain skin types can be more sensitive and allergic to chemical agents. In such cases, the chances for pimples to occur are more while using heavy cosmetics. This can also lead to other serious skin infections. But, pimples caused due to this will automatically disappear once you stop using them.

Smoking And Alcohol Consumption

Many might not know that smoking can also cause pimples on your skin. When you smoke, it blocks the oxygen supply to the cells in your skin. So, insufficient oxygen supply will convert the bacteria in your skin to turn into fatty acids[5]. This will cause inflammations and irritations in your skin. It also disturbs the hormone level and slows down the healing process. So if you have acne, it will not get cured very soon. This will take a lot of time to get treated.

certain studies have proved that consuming alcohol can enhance the production of testosterone hormone in women. So, this will eventually lead to the pimples on your skin. It can also aggravate the effects of pimples on your skin. Once you stop consuming alcohol, the hormone level will get balanced and the pimples get reduced on your skin.

Food Habits

Food plays a major role in determining your skin and health. So, consuming foods that are rich in oil and fatty acids can increase the oil secretion in your skin. Consuming unhealthy foods can lead to hormonal imbalance. This can affect the normal texture and quality of your skin to a greater extent.

Not drinking sufficient amount of water can also cause acne to occur. Your skin needs enough moisture just like the roots of the plants. So, when you don’t consume enough water, our skin cells tend to become very dry. This will pave the way for the pimples to get developed on your skin.

Improper sleep might lead to reduced secretion of hormones that could act against infections. By giving enough rest to your body, you can notice certain visible changes in your skin. It can also play a major role in maintaining glowing skin. This will help in improving your energy and will offer a clear skin to you. So, get plenty of sleep as much as possible to have healthy skin.

Use Mild Makeup

Many women use makeup as a tool to hide their acne and to lighten their skin. But, when these makeups are applied, they block the pores in your skin. The creams and the lotions that are applied get clogged in your skin pores. As days go, these creams in your pores get developed as pimples and acne on your skin. When you already have a pimple, then applying these makeups will aggravate its effects. Using heavy foundations and creams can also affect the normal texture of your skin. So, prefer using mild makeups that do not disturb your skin quality. Also, do not forget to wash your face after you reach home.

  1. This is such a terrific and well written post. I love that it has so many remedies to chose from to exterminate our forehead acne. It is so exhaustive and informative. Keep it up guys and I am going to just try some of these out and hopefully return with a success story. later.

  2. Hello, I have recently had a haircut and now I have bangs. But it is worrying me that I might get forehead acne now. Is it possible and how should I avoid it when I am wearing my bangs down. I don’t really use any products for my hair care but I do use hair blower and iron etc, basically I use heat on my hair to style it. Is someone here with similar experience and able to help me out, I will be grateful. Thanks.

  3. @Nancy Keller – Hi Nancy, I may be able to help you out a bit. You should keep your forehead clean and clear to keep it free from oils to avoid acne and pimples there. you can use a gentle skin cleanser for this purpose. Just keep it clean, wash it regularly. Do it in the morning and in the evening and maybe even before going to bed. Hope this is of some help to you.

  4. Love this page. Bookmarking this for the future because I know I will use these remedies. For now my face is clear for acne but they always come back. My forehead is their special victim. they turn it into a mountain range practically, I get such breakouts there, you would not believe it, unless you see it of course. It almost looks like one of the horrifying before picture you know. Splendid work guys compiling all these useful remedies. Three cheers for your team. Later.

  5. I have heard that pimples on different parts of the skin signify different issues within your body. So my question is, as you might have predicted, what does pimples on the forehead signify? What should I correct within my body if pimples start appearing on my forehead. Thanks in advance to anyone taking the time to help out a stranger on the internet.

  6. @Shraddha – Yes, you are right there is reason behind the occurrence of breakouts in different parts of the skin. If there is breakout on your forehead, it suggests some issues with your digestive system or your bladder. So try to cut down on stuff like processed foods. Also, it means that you are drinking too little water so up your water intake. High levels of stress could also result in breakouts on the forehead, so if you are living a hectic lifestyle or under a lot of stress, take steps to curb your stress. You can do it, there are many steps and methods you can take to decrease and control your stress. Listen to your favorite music, take up meditation or hiking if you love being in nature, indulge in hobbies that relax you like painting. Also give up unhealthy habits like smoking if you do that. Hope this was helpful to you.

  7. Love this post! endless natural home remedies to get rid of acne and breakouts. Who would not find this helpful, yeah, nobody. So, awesome work glowpink people, keep more coming like this one. Thumbs up.

  8. I read in the post that I should keep my bed sheets and pillow covers clean to reduce the chance of acne or breakouts. I change my pillowcases every 3 to 4 weeks. Is that enough to avoid acne due to impurities from pillowcase?? can anybody help me answer this ?

  9. @Vera – You are doing good. You should change your pillowcases as often as you can to avoid unnecessary acne. Your face may get acne due to this because when you sleep the oils from your skin collects in the pillowcase and builds up over time which can incur acne on your face. So just clean them with your other laundry too, that’s pretty easy to follow. Good day to you.

  10. Hey ladies, I read or heard somewhere that using dairy products and drinking milk is a big cause behind breakouts and acne on the skin. Quick search into this topic reveals that it is true and scientifically proven. Now here comes, the problem, I am vegetarian so dairy products make up a big part of my diet as that is where I get most of my proteins from. Okay so maybe that is the reason that I get acne a lot, including my forehead. What should I do ladies, anybody has any solution to this issue. Please I need some help here.

  11. @Marie Sanders – Yes, this is an issue for you, but not that big. There are ways you can work around this. First, there are ways to get enough proteins from plants. Maybe you forgot about soy, which is used as alternative to milk and dairy products quite often. You can go for that, You can start drinking soy milk if you like to drink milk. there are other foods too which you can eat to get your proteins like tofu, tempeh (which are soy products), lentils, beans, chickpeas, quinoa, hummus, and eggs too if you do not have any issues eating them. Also, you can still eat cheese and yogurt as they do not have the same effect as milk on triggering breakouts and pimples. Have a good day and I wish you a good luck. Bye.

  12. This is an excellent article with tons and tons of effective remedies to get rid of your forehead acne. I have tried some aloe vera and tea tree oil remedies before and they worked great for me. So I would recommend you try those out first.

  13. Nice post. I will definitely try out these remedies to get rid of my pimples. Just wanted to ask : Is it safe to pop the pimples on face (or anywhere else for that matter) or should we not do that. thanks a bunch anyway.

  14. Hey gals, you do not always have to wait for the pimples to appear on your face then look for remedies to treat them. I have found the preventive measure to be best. If you can figure out what works best for you based on why you are getting acne, that would be the best, you won’t have to deal with the acne in that case. i have some things which I have started following and I gotta say I do notice that my acne have reduced and I get much fewer and less intense breakouts. I will share those tips with you gals too. Clean your face daily. I use a gentle cleanser to wash my face two times in a day. Use warm water to rinse your face afterward and pat dry your face with a soft towel instead of rubbing motion. Also wash your hair frequently. Keep them relatively free from oil, if you have naturally greasy hair and scalp, get shampoo which helps specifically with that issue. Also avoid products and bands and stuff which touch your hair. Also, i would not recommend having bangs or fringe etc, that can also bring about onset of pimples on your forehead. This is what is floating to the top of my head. i am sure many of you will find this helpful if you try it out. Have a nice day. Goodbye.

  15. I love this post and this site. I love using natural remedies to treat my skin and issues. They make my skin feel great while also remedying any issues and diseases with them. Natural remedies and ingredients are awesome, every woman should use them more is what I say. 😀 Thanks a bunch!!

  16. Hey, guys do not touch your skin, I repeat do not touch your skin. Every time you touch your skin, face whatever, you add more bacteria to it which gets into your pores and gives rise to pimples. So keep your hands clean at all times and avoid touching your face unless it is absolutely necessary. I am out. See ya.

  17. A lot of great advice and remedies in this page. It is like a gold mine for getting rid of your forehead acne effectively. Absolutely love it! 🙂 I thought I will also add some of my accrued wisdom here for some plucky weirdo teenager to find to help them get rid of your acne. I already feel like a good Samaritan thinking that might happen someday, pretty soon if I have to bet. Anyway, where was I, yeah, I was sharing my wisdom. You guys, always use non-comedogenic products for your skin care. Be it make up cleansers or anything else which you might use on your face, look for non-comedogenic products. Okay, I realize many may know this but also many might not know it. You also did not know about it at some point, then, you knew it. That is what I am doing, helping other women know about this. I won’t tell you what it means though, you can easily find out about that through google. Okay, i will, gosh. It means those product do not clog up your pores which will result in fewer acne, at least due to those products.

  18. @ Sonam – No, definitely not, you do not want to pop pimples on your skin. that is not going to help at all. In fact, it will make the condition even worse. when you pick or pimples at your pimples you will add more impurities and bacteria to your face which could cause more pimples or even infections and stuff. Also, if you pop a pimple it might leave a scar or blemish as popping a pimple will take much longer for the skin to heal there. Some of you might have noticed that when you pop a pimple, you will get another pimple right nearby it within a few days. So, do not do that ladies, never pop your pimples. Later.

  19. Hey, if any of you are getting pimples on your forehead and you like to wear hats or caps, the hats may be the cause of the pimples. When anything rubs up against your forehead it creates heat on your skin due to friction from the hat. This heat and friction from hats or caps can block the hair follicles on your skin which can result in acne breakouts on your forehead. This is not your standard breakout but a different type which is known as acne mechanica. you can look it up. At least, this issue is very easy and obvious to remedy. yeah, you guessed it, stop wearing those dang hats. If your forehead acne clears up after a few days and does not seem to be coming back, that was probably the root of your problem. Now, remember to use other sun protection like sun screen to protect your skin from sun damage if you are giving up your beloved hats. Sun damage is serious as we all know and a leading cause for ski ncancer nowadays in either of the genders. So take care of yourself gals and good luck.

  20. great post glowpink. I am definitely going to try some of the remedies given here on myself cause i get a lot of forehead acne. they look bad and make me really self conscious. Thanks for sharing this post with us. Cheers and see ya later glowpink! keep it up..

  22. Hey ladies, tons of great advice and information on this page to heal and prevent acne and breakouts. there is so much to learn and know here, I am sure nobody knows everything that is provided here. so I thought I will also add my two cents and reveal what I know. Now, first of all, this might have been said on this page already, I mean, nobody could go through it all so quickly. Anyway, I would suggest that you stop using hair products which contains ingredients which can plug up your pores. Ingredients such as pomades or hair gel. These can easily block your skin pores which leads to irritation and breakouts. So, stop using them immediately if you want to avoid forehead acne, look for non-comedogenic products, those do not block the pores. Also, look towards what you put in your body if, for the life of you, you cannot figure out why are you getting so much acne. Try to cut down on dairy and dairy products as they are proven to cause acne and breakouts. Also, avoid food with empty carbohydrates and any other high- glycemic foods which can cause insulin spike in your body. These are also a major culprit behind acne. that’s about all which is coming up to the surface right now, I will come back and share some more if I remember. Meanwhile, all the best ladies and keep aspiring for living your best lives, I believe in you, all of you. Later xoxo.

  25. Awesome post. You gals should take up cleansing your face with a mild cleanser. I do it twice in a day and it has significant reduction effect on my acne and my breakouts are pretty much non-existent too now. I do it in the morning and before I go to sleep. try it out girls, you won’t be disappointed. Bye and all the best.

  27. Hi guys, great post on forehead acne. As always, would not expect anything else. Anyway, I want to share a tip with you guys. Everybody and their moms say that exfoliating the skin is fantastic and it is the best way to rejuvenate the skin and cleanse it from dead skin cells. While that is all true, doing that in excess irritates your skin and may also result in acne and breakouts. So, just limit your exfoliation to like a couple, or three at max, days a week. That should be enough to give you all the benefits without overdoing it. I hope someone finds this useful. Cheers and goodbye! 🙂
