Post in Combination Skin

Bumpy forehead?!

I have these horrible little bumps on my forehead that NEVER seem to go away. They aren’t pimples (no white head).No matter how clear the rest of my skin is. I have pretty dry-combination skin. I do tend to still get breakouts.. more so now then I did as a teen (I’m 27 yo with an 18 mo)! I’ve always had these bumps and it’s so frustrating! I use a Clarisonic, good cleanser and moisturizer! I haven’t worn my foundation in so long because it makes the bumps more pronounced 😭. I just want clear skin. Any help I’d appreciate!

Re: Bumpy forehead?!

Sometimes bumpy skin like that can be the cause of dehydrated skin. Have you ever gotten a hydration reading at a Sephora location?

Re: Bumpy forehead?!

Hmmm... Your skin appears a bit irritated in my opinion. There is overall redness and texture issues. I would go easy on the Clarisonic and use a gentle cleanser. Personally, I love La Roche Posay Hydrating Gentle cleanser. It is not drying and works great with my combination skin type. Follow up with a good toner and moisturize well. Also, I would recommend re-evaluating the products that you are using. There might be an ingredient that is not compatible with your skin and causing a reaction. In my case, I cannot use products with mineral oil, alcohol, coconut, and several others. If you personally feel that your skin is not irritated and it is solely a bumpy congested skin issue, a chemical exfoliator will do the trick. The previous poster gave great advice. 


Hope you find a solution soon!

Re: Bumpy forehead?!

i agree that the ren glycol lactic mask is BRILLIANT. another option in that vein is the REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic which can be used with more regularity than the mask. but if you use a chemical exfoliant, shelve the clarisonic, it'll be overexfoliation which can mess with your skin barrier and cause this sort of texture. (regardless of what you try, i HIGHLY recommend shelving the clarisonic for a month or so and see if you notice a difference).

@chelspaigexo Do you use any chemical exfoliant? If not, I would definitely start there. You have a few options. REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask

is an EXCELLENT glycolic + lactic acid mask. It combines the two acids in a mask form to gently exfoliate. I’m a seasoned user of chemical exfoliants, and I always go back to this mask. 

My daily peel is DR. DENNIS GROSS SKINCARE - Alpha Beta® Extra Strength Daily Peel 

it is a two step peel, step A combined 7 different AHA and BHA’s in a pre-soaked pad that you run along your skin for 2 minutes. You wait for 2 minuets then apply Step B another pre-soaked pad to the skin which is soaked in neutralizer. This treatment I do every night before bed and my skin is baby soft and smooth when I wake up in the morning. It gets rid of texture, acne, helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
