What causes that pesky forehead acne?

It looks like the oily hair product might be a pimple-causing culprit.

Forehead acne

After asking a dermatologist about the relationship between conditioner and acne, and it looks like the oily hair product might be a pimple-causing culprit.

"Products like conditioners can leave residue on the scalp and skin surface, clogging pores and triggering irritation," says Dr. Jessica Weiser, of New York Dermatology Group.

We think adopting a routine of lathering on a coat of conditioner will remedy dry summer strands, but in reality, these oil-based products trap bacteria and create a breeding ground for acne, Weiser says.

She says to apply a small amount and to steer clear of conditioners with jojoba and shea butter.

It's also recommended to wash your face in the shower after shampooing and conditioning to prevent residue build-up.

This should now be a vital part of your routine.

Don't wash your hair every day, and adding less conditioner often also helps in this department.

Another rule of thumb that will take some time getting used to: don't apply conditioner within four inches of your scalp.
