Forehead cystic pimples June 07 2017, 0 Comments

Forehead cystic pimples are something almost everyone has experienced. From what I have noticed, it’s the first spot on the face that gets acne when someone begins to experience it. For example, my first pimple was on my forehead, in between my eyebrows. I then later experienced pimples all across my forehead, but never anywhere else on my face until I had reached the age of 14 where I had a growth spurt and other hormones started to be involved. After that point, my very prominent forehead cystic pimples eventually went away in the short time for 3 and a half months. After that, I rarely to never had a breakout on my forehead. I was definitely grateful that my forehead acne had gone away but I always wondered why it was there in the first place and why I don’t get forehead pimples anymore.

Something that I had never thought of, and actually shocked me quite a bit was that the little bumps on your forehead that were there but not at the same time are actually caused by large amounts of sugar. Most likely, the small bumps you have are the same color as your skin, don’t flare up very often, and are always there no matter how hard you try. This is actually a very minor, surface yeast infection, caused by huge intakes of sugar. These bumps do not come from surface contact with sugar but rather from the sugar that we eat. At the time when I still had forehead acne, I was taking in way more sugar than I should have. I realized that at around the same time my forehead acne went away I started changing my diet and going for more healthier options.

Another situation that was contributing to my forehead acne was my lack of water intake and the fact that I was picking constantly. Most people don’t get enough water each day. If you are already suffering from acne I guarantee your skin will begin to clear up once you start drinking around 8 cups of water a day. Most people without acne, as well as young children, touch their face. When you are constantly touching your face or resting your hands on your forehead you’re putting germs and dirt on your face, leading to clogged pores and more pimples.
