Hair and Acne

February 27, 2015 by Works with Water

Having a fringe can give your face a bit of an edge, especially if you have naturally straight hair. It can also hide any imperfections on your forehead, which is quite handy if you have a bad skin day. However, can a fringe also be a reason why you are getting spots on your face?

It can indeed. Hair that touches the skin often transfers dirt and oil that can clog the pores – especially if your hair tends to get greasy quickly – and also spreads bacteria, which can cause your skin to breakout. However, the main culprits are the hair care products applied to the hair. From shampoo and conditioner to styling gel, each of these products contains a multitude of chemicals that can leave a pore-blocking film on the skin. And if the skin can’t breathe, then spots are likely to appear…

So, does this mean you have to ditch the fringe? No, not at all. Changing your hair care products and opting for more natural alternatives free from chemicals such as SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate), which may block pores, can make all the difference. Also, when applying your styling products, make sure to not touch the skin. To give your skin an extra layer of protection from the inside out, try our help: clear skin sachets as these help to limit bacteria growth, leaving your skin less prone to blemishes and more radiant than ever.
