Easy Fixes For Hairline Breakouts

Acne can pop up anywhere -- on your face, your back, your chest, and, very commonly... your hairline. Fortunately, there are some relatively easy fixes for hairline breakouts as they might be occurring due to your environment or personal habits.

If you break out along the periphery of your face, read this checklist to find out what the problem may be: 

  • Your pillow case may be cotton, but if the weave of the material has any kind of texture to it (i.e. it's not incredibly soft), friction can lead to irritation of your pores. in addition, dryer sheets and fabric softeners leave a pore clogging film, which leads to pore congestion.
  • Some people actually don't wash properly along their hairline because they don't want to get their hair wet.
  • Hair-styling product that has clogging fats and waxes for condition along with hold can bleed down past the hairline due to gravity and perspiration. If you use mousse or pomade, these types of products are very clogging to skin that is acne-prone. Hairspray and gel don't always clog pores but can block them so that skin can end up clogging itself through the overproduction and backup of oils. Talk to your stylist about ways to style your hair without these products.
  • Your cleanser simply isn't doing it's job!
