A huge deciding factor before getting bangs was the fear of getting forehead acne.

I wasn’t sure if the oils from my hair being so close to my forehead were going to cause my skin to break out.

I decided to go ahead with my haircut change and couldn’t be happier because sometimes the pros outweigh the cons. I was pretty confident I could fight acne or potential break outs with a consistent skin regimen. 


I like to use my St. Ives Naturally Clear Blemish and Blackhead Control Scrub to fight against clogged pores and wake up my skin. I’ve been using St. Ives for years--this scrub has been my go-to when it comes to making blackheads and blemishes disappear.

I top it off with my Botanics Hydrating Day Cream with SPF 15 and continue on to my usual makeup routine.


I opt for the Cetaphil Facial Cleanser to remove makeup. I love that it is gentle enough for daily use. I also never sleep with makeup on and because my forehead is usually hidden I forgo wearing makeup there anyways.

Additional tips

  • Wash face with desired acne fighting cleanser twice a day.
  • Use blotting paper throughout the day to minimize oily skin.
  • Do not put makeup on your forehead--nobody is going to see it anyways.
