If you have spots on your forehead, it can be embarrassing to go out in public, whether you’re trying to get rid of them or not. You might be tempted to simply try and ignore them, or worse attack them, so it’s going to take some effort on your part. In this article, we’ll outline seven different ways that you can use to get rid of those unsightly spots on your forehead and prevent them in the future.

1) Exfoliate your skin

Too much oil and dirt build up can clog your pores and lead to breakouts. but also hormonal changes can be the cause of breakouts. Exfoliating your skin regularly, with a gentle face wash or scrub, will rid your skin of dirt and oil trapped in pores. This can also prevent new spots from forming and keeping them at bay. Use an exfoliator 2-3 times per week. If you have sensitive skin, it is important to choose an exfoliator that contains gentle ingredients such as those by Avene. Be sure not to overdo it though, a gentle wash will do. If you’re experiencing any irritation after using an exfoliator, it means that your skin is too sensitive for it and you should try an alternative instead.

2) Use a warm compress

A cold compress, such as an ice pack or bag of frozen vegetables can soothe inflammation and minimize swelling. But not all spots are caused by inflammation; some are caused by irritation, in which case a warm compress can do wonders. If your skin is oily and acne-prone, consider using a warm, damp washcloth that you leave behind for a few minutes before rinsing off with cool water. A towel drenched in hot water will also do wonders: just pat it gently on your forehead.

3) Clarifying Lotion

After washing your face gently with a mild cleanser, rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Apply a small amount of clarifying lotion onto a cotton pad, then on your forehead and let it air dry. Do not rub it in as you might end up spreading bacteria and oil across your skin. Use twice daily for optimal results.

This is my secret weapon against spots. Personally I use Clinque’s Clarifying Lotion 2 and it treat’s emergency spots or abrasions – if I want to ensure the area will not get infected.

4) Avoid picking at spots or squeezing them

When you have a spot, it’s easy to want to squeeze or pick at it. This can make things worse as you’re forcing bacteria deeper into your skin and taking longer for your immune system and skin cells to work their magic. Resist picking at spots or squeezing them – doing so could end up causing scarring or permanent pigmentation issues! Instead, dab a little bit of tea tree oil onto a cotton pad and apply it directly onto your forehead blemish or follow with no.3’s clarifying lotion.

5) Stay well hydrated

Since your skin is an extension of your circulatory system, it’s important that you keep it well hydrated. Be sure to drink plenty of water and other fluids throughout the day. Doing so will not only boost your energy but also decrease spots.

6) Antibiotic face lotion

Whether you have acne, rosacea or another skin condition that causes pimples and blemishes, antibiotic lotions can be a great addition to your skincare routine. The kind you choose depends on your skin type. The lotion works by killing bacteria that irritate your skin and cause breakouts. Doctors usually recommend applying it twice a day after washing your face with a mild cleanser—once in the morning before you put on makeup and once at night before bed. You’ll need to see your GP, but it could be the solution for you if you are struggling to maintain a clear complex on a regular basis.
