Dr. Pimple Popper Reveals the 9 Acne-Fighting Rules Everyone Should Memorize
Push your bangs back
Oils from your hair can travel to your skin, clogging your pores and causing acne. “People have bangs that sweep their face, and you lift that up and see black heads or white heads,” says Dr. Lee. She recommends using a headband or clip to keep your hair off your face when you’re at home to give your skin a breather.
Go light on the hair products
If you’re a hair product nut, you might end up with “pomade acne,” says Dr. Lee. Those heavy products get on your skin, clogging your pores. “Stay away from more heavy, greasy products like oils or gels,” she says. Instead, try something lighter, like mousse, she suggests.
