Getting that fringe undeniably transforms any look, but the unwanted breakout that comes along with it is the part we all hate. With the oil on your hair and the sweat on your forehead, your pores can easily get all clogged up–making you prone to acne more than ever. Luckily, you can follow these easy steps to keep your skin clear underneath the fringe:
1. Keep your bangs away from your face.
Of course, the best way to avoid a forehead breakout is by getting rid of the bangs. But since that isn’t always possible (you chopped them off for a good reason), tuck your fringe away from your face during your downtime instead. This will allow your skin to breathe. P.S. This step is also crucial during work out sessions where you produce more oil and sweat (Sweat-induced breakouts are an actual thing).
2. Keep blotting papers nearby.
During the day, get rid of residues like the oil that transferred from your hair to your skin with the use of blotting sheets. Doing this will help manage the breakout!
Oil Absorbing Sheets, Clean & Clear
This step might not be new to your routine, but to make it extra-effective for you take everything off at night, use a salicylic acid-based cleanser. It’s a good acne-fighting ingredient that breaks off cells like clogged pores, blackheads and even whiteheads. After all, having bangs sweeping across your forehead all day would mean taking your skin care up a notch.
