Question: How do I deal with breakouts around my hairline?
Answer: This is a question I can totally relate to, as I have personally dealt with breakouts around my hairline. I suspect it relates to the summer heat and the lovely hormonal changes all women have to go through. Although there’s not much we can do about that, there are a few things we can do to help minimize breakouts:
1. Always wash your face before you sleep and as soon as you wake up.
2. Use a moisturizer that is oil-free, and be sure that it also contains salicylic acid. This will prevent breakouts, and it’ll also help the irritated areas heal.
3. Clean your makeup brushes on a daily basis; sometimes the dust and dirt left on the brushes will cause breakouts.
4. As for makeup, you don’t want to make your hairline breakout worse by piling on tons of products. I usually use the Tarte BB Tinted treatment and mix the NYX HD concealer and Revlon’s Blemish Concealer together.
4. Try to keep your hair out of the way by vouching for a ponytail or a cute bun. Hair is a known culprit when it comes to breakouts, so do your best to tame your hair by pulling it back more frequently.
Always remember that breakouts or blemishes should not dictate the way you feel. Just know that we have all been there, and don’t stress too much about it. Smile and carry on :)
