Do You Have Acne On Your Forehead or Back?

Do You Have Acne On Your Forehead or Back?

Often we do not realize that we are actually aggravating acne with the hair products we use. For those who are acne prone paying close attention to the ingredients in your products such as sulfates (aka “sodium laureth sulfate” and “sodium lauryl sulfate”) which leave a film on your skin, can be responsible for acne.  These eruptions will often surface in places like the forehead, between the eyebrows, scalp, hair line, back, shoulders and chest. If this is the pattern you are experiencing it is almost always your hair products. Just by making an easy change for products that are acne safe you can help extinguish current breakouts.

While knowing what ingredients that are in your hair products can be half the battle, keeping an eye out and AVOID problem oils  such as; coconut oil, cocoa butter, sweet almond oil, carrot oil, olive oil, apricot kernel oil, palm kernel oil, Argan oil, Moroccan oil, vitamin E oil, grape seed oil, and wheat germ oil, plus many more! Instead, replace your current protocol with any of the following hair products that are ABQ Acne Clinic Approved!
