forehead keeps breaking out

Post by summerbreeze76 on 8th February 2011, 12:49 pm

Any suggestions on how I can prevent my forhead from breaking out. Ive never had a problem with acne or skin bumps until i went natural. I know that in the past if my hair was in my face and it was a bit oily i would get a few bumps, but it was nothing like this is.

I also think that it is worse for me because i workout pretty regularly and when i sweat whatever product is in my hair just runs dow my face. I really believe that this is the culprit. My hubby told me i need to buy one of those Richard Simmons headband thingies (i know yall remember those) to prevent the sweat from sitting on my face. I am only breaking out on my forhead and hairline.

ANy ideas?

I agree with your hubby. Try to keep your hair out of you face and off your forehead as much as possible too. I use the OCM with pretty good results. My breakouts have slowed considerably. HTH!

Thanks for the reply. What is the OCM?

Yeah! Its basically washing your face with Castor oil and another oil of your choice to keep your face from being stripped of its natural oils by washing it with commercial products. Its great when you find the right oils and proportions for your skin.

Wow, thanks ladies. I think i am going to try this tonight. I have Castor oil, but no sunflower seed oil. I think i will use Avocado. I see a trip to Whole Foods in my future over the weekend.

Glad to help! Let us know how it works for you. You can use jojoba, EVOO, or sweet almond oils also. I might have to try that avocado oil though, I bought some last week without knowing what to do with it. I currently use EVOO and it works great.

I love MopTopMaven:

Read about the OCM here

Read about skin and what oil to use with Castor here

Some extra tips here

Good luck! I'd also definitely give a headband a go. Smile

Question:do any of the products you use contain glycerine because i find that this can also be a culprit of the fine bumps on your forehead especially when you sweat or have hair in your face.

My face tends to break out right after I finish my co wash, oil, and style routine so lately I just wash my face immediately after I'm done. I think its the oil that's breaking my face because I have extremely sensitive skin.
