Are your outbreaks trying to tell you something?
If you've heard of facial recognition, you're familiar with the idea that what's happening on our face can be an indicator of what's going on in our body. If you have regular stains on your temples and hairline, you may be wondering why and what this means.
The forehead is often said to indicate a stressed bladder or a stressed digestive system. But what if breakouts only occur around the temples (the area between the hairline and the eyes)? In this article, we discuss the possible reasons for stains on temples and suggest steps you can take to combat the problem.
Stains on the temples are often a sign of dehydration. If you don't drink enough water, the oil glands on your temples can become faster, causing clogged pores and breakouts.
Get in the habit of drinking water regularly throughout the day to ensure hydration. Do you treat yourself to a few glasses of wine? Match your intake with water to avoid additional blemishes in this area the next day.
Avoiding salty snacks
When we eat a lot of salty food, we need more water to balance the sodium that we have consumed. If we don't drink enough to make up for it, these savory snacks can be a quick way to get dehydrated.
Try combining salty food like a spoonful of peanut butter with water-rich celery sticks or apple slices to keep your body hydrated.
Acne and temple spots can often be caused by wearing headgear such as helmets or hats. You may cycle to work every day and have to wear a helmet, or you may never be seen without a hat. Headgear can cause sweat on the temples and hairline to come close to the skin and lead to breakouts.
If you need to wear headgear, we recommend that you only clean the area with natural skin care products after you remove the headgear. The faster you can remove the sweat, the more likely it is that your pores will not clog and that annoying pimples will not form.
Include a skin kit in your fitness kit.
When we train hard, our forehead is often the first place we start to sweat. Sweat glands around the hairline and temple can easily clog and lead to annoying pimples.
Quickly shower and clean thoroughly after training to avoid blemishes. Invest in a mini skin care kit for your gym bag so you are not tempted to hack and switch products (or use the free shower gel!) To clean your skin.
