Acne or a Pimple, no matter what place it chooses to appear on your face, is not welcome! It is a condition which seems to hit everyone. But you’ll be surprised to know that this skin issue is not caused by the same things.

Forehead acne has different root causes, unlike the other types. The forehead is an area where pimples often develop and for a lot of people. Choice of such strategic location makes them the first thing which people notice on your face. Nobody wishes to have “that” kind of attention on their forehead.

These can be seen as small bumps and under worse conditions it can appear as cystic acne. Worry not, we can help you! Have a look at this informative article to know the different causes and tips to get rid of forehead acne.

Let’s start with the causes first!


Clogged Pores :

This is one of the main and universal causes of acne! The forehead lies in the T-zone area. It is known for its quality of excess oil production. This extra oil tends to clog the pores and leads to this skin problem.

Dandruff Problem :

In case you have dandruff in your hair, this can trigger the appearance of acne on your forehead. This is because it is a skin infection which occurs because of fungi. This can irritate the skin on your forehead and cause pimples.

Excess oil in the Scalp :

In some people, the skin of the scalp produces excess oil. This extra oil can run down and result in clogging of the skin pores. This further causes acne on the forehead.

Digestive Issues :

Problems related to digestion can be another cause of forehead acne if you don’t any of the above-mentioned problems.

Stress :

This is another factor which adds to most of our health issues in some way or other. Stress can disturb the normal hormonal balance and regular oil production of the skin.

Over Exfoliation :

Although exfoliation is helpful in removing the dead skin cells and keeps the skin fresh. But, overdoing it can result in skin irritation and acne. Anything done in excess is not good for your skin.

Wearing Helmet and Caps :

In case you drive two-wheelers, then a helmet is a must for your safety. But, it is not easy to clean the inside of the helmet and often nobody pays attention to it. All the sweat from your skin can make the inner portion of the helmet a breeding site for germs.  When these germs come in contact with your skin can cause acne/pimples.

What can you do to get rid of forehead acne?

Diet Changes :

In case digestive problems are the reason behind such acne, some simple changes in the diet can help. Try to eat green and leafy vegetables and make sure to have enough fiber in a day. Cut down the intake of fatty and fried foods; replace them with the healthier ones. Drink enough water to improve your digestion.

Make adjustments in Routine Life :

If you are exfoliating your skin too much or using chemical-containing products, then your face-washing routine needs a change. Continue to wash your face in a proper manner, but don’t exfoliate more than one time in every 2-3 days. Switch to a new cleaning product like the one which is natural and safe.


One such product is Roop Mantra Neem Face Wash; an herbal soap-free formulation. It is free from chemicals and the natural ingredients do not affect the skin. Plus it helps to remove pimples, acne, blemishes, and blackheads from the face.

Change Shampoo :

As discussed above, dandruff and hair with excess oil can be a cause to forehead acne. So, switching to new and effective shampoo can be helpful. Choose the right product which is free from harsh chemicals.

Exercise :


Exercising in routine can help to relieve stress and your body will sweat which helps to clean the skin pores. A 30-minute session of exercise can be helpful.

Facial Scrubs :

Chemical products can cause breakouts to your skin, so, it’s better to opt for natural methods. Select products which contain natural and herbal ingredients. Or you can make a scrub at your home using natural products like orange peel, lemon, and sugar, coffee, rice flour etc.

Wear a clean Head Attire :

Hats and head apparel catch dirt and dust in a quick manner. So, cleaning them often is a must so that the germs don’t get settle down on your face.
