Is your hair style overshadowed by breakouts? Learn how to treat prevent hairline pimples in a few easy steps.
It seems to be a fact of life: oil leads to acne. But why? They suppress natural skin exfoliation, which causes bacterial growth . Instead, use a water-based styler such as Garnier Fructis Style Curl Scrunch gel ($5 at mass retailers).
These formulas contain ingredients that reduce growth of bacteria. We suggest using the classic Head & Shoulders Clinical Strength Dandruff shampoo ($8 at mass retailers).
Unclog pores with salicylic or glycolic acids, but not benzoyl peroxide, which can bleach hair. To keep breakouts at bay, cleanse with gentle, pre-moistened and self-foaming textured pads, like Aveeno Clear Complexion daily cleansing pads ($7 at mass retailers).
Touch up your skin throughout the day. Invest in oil-blotting sheets, like Clean and Clear Morning Burst Oil-Absorbing sheets ($9 at mass retailers), to pat away excess oil and freshen up on the go.
Heavy conditioning agents such as silicones leave residue behind. Try a lightweight formula that gently treats and untangles, like Charles Worthington London Well Balance conditioner ($13). Avoid the roots, and rinse out your conditioner before cleansing your face.
