Hi there. I'm a new member, and I couldn't have stumbled upon a better website than this at the moment.
I have only had acne for a few years at the most, but being a health nut, I have pretty high expectations for my skin. My face is relatively clear; I only get a pimple or two on my chin because of my hormones, hardly any on my nose, none on my cheeks, but I tend to break out a lot on my forehead. I think I have combination skin, but my T-zone isn't all that oily, and my forehead will only be oily if I over-moisturize or use a harsh cleanser. I don't have bangs either, so I'm pretty sure my acne problem is internal.
I've read many posts on home remedies (I prefer not to use chemicals on my face) for forehead acne, and I came upon a certain one that said that forehead acne is usually tied to dehydration. That was interesting to me, because I rarely drink water (only drink a glass or two a day), so I wonder if this could actually be true. Have any of you guys with forehead acne tried drinking more water (about 2 liters) and has it helped in any way? I've noticed a lot of people say that once they started drinking more water, their acne started clearing up and ended up with more nourished skin overall. Of course, they kept up their cleansing routine, but the increase in water intake seems to have helped many.
I'm going to try this for about a month and see how it goes. I did start drinking more water today, but it's way too early for me to notice a difference. I'm going to be keeping up my lemon and honey practice as well.
