Quick Ways to Get Rid of Your Forehead Tiny Bumps

Quick Ways to Get Rid of Your Forehead Tiny Bumps

What are Tiny Bumps?

Look at your forehead! Do you notice there are some tiny acnes without pus inside on it?

That could be TINY BUMPS or in Malay, we call them as JERAWAT PASIR. Yes, as the name suggests, it is most likely related to acne and anything related to acne could be the culprit that causes tiny bumps to form. However, that is not the only thing! Tiny bumps could be formed due to dead skin cells, damaged hair follicles or even allergic reactions.

Fungal Acne vs Tiny Bumps

But people usually cannot differentiate it with FUNGAL ACNE. I would like to emphasize here, FUNGAL ACNE is very rare and you can’t simply diagnose your skin without dermatologist diagnosis. 

If you see one, it is most likely tiny bump or just in case you are unsure, seek for dermatologist advice for confirmation. 

Ingredients to avoid if you have FUNGAL ACNE:

Ingredients to AvoidExample
Fatty acid and Oil
  • Myristic acid
  • Linoleic acid

Isopropyl palmitate

Decoyl oleate

PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate

PEG-7 Glyceryl Stearate

Polyethylene Glycol Stearates

Polysorbates20, 40, 60, 80
Yeast fermentsGalactomyces


There are many culprits that cause tiny bumps to form including dandruff, dead skin cells, sebum accumulation and under exfoliate.

These are all the things that can get into pores and potentially make your pores get clogged or appear larger. Although it is not a really big issue but of course as a wise person, we have insecurities if something appears on our face (and me too!). Soooo, do something or it will ruin your mood today, tomorrow or could be forever?

Simple Ways to Prevent

Prevention is always better than cure. Please please avoid the things below if you are scared of tiny bumps breeding on your forehead like no one knows when it will disappear.

1. Avoid leaving facial oil for longer time or overnight

As facial oil tends to be comedogenic (clogs your pore), use it with care! Don’t leave it for too long or another trick is to mix your facial oil with moisturiser.

2. Avoid over cleansing/over exfoliation

These two activities can cause your pores wall to expand and damage your skin barrier, causing more dead skin cells to be trapped inside the pore and forming tiny bumps.

3. Avoid having bangs

Any hairstyle that comes into contact to skin can trigger tiny bump to happen as dandruff can potentially get into pores, causing them to get clogged.

Treat Before It Gets Worsen

1. Double Cleansing

Cleansing Oil will help to deep cleanse pore by removing dead skin cells and sebum clogging the pores

2. Exfoliate 1-2 times per week

Do you know how important exfoliation is in your routine? Exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells, regulate sebum production and deep cleanses your pore, leaving your skin with clearer and less visible pore.

3. Cleanse your hair regularly

Do not wash 2 times per day as it will cause more hair to fall. Just wash regularly to ensure your hair stay fresh and clean.

4. Apply clay mask

While reducing excess sebum production, clay mask & led face mask will also help in sloughing away dead skin cells, revealing brighter complexion of your skin. Use 2 to 3 times per week and bye-bye dull skin!

5. Get rid of your dandruff

Purchase any anti- dandruff shampoo and apply at least twice a week on your hair, and make sure to wash all the affected areas like scalp. Avoid washing your hair with your hair upside down, as the dandruff flowing off your scalp will eventually settle down on the forehead and face.

6. Hydrate your skin

Hydration is the key! The hydration will eventually help in repairing your skin barrier and makes your barrier perform at its optimum level.

7. Use soothing ingredients

Using soothing ingredients will actually assist in flattening your tiny bumps as it is also related to acne. Just as how you treat acne, that is how you should treat tiny bumps!

8. End your routine with moisturiser

There’s no use of using hydrating products if you don’t lock the hydration with moisturiser. It allows your barrier to perform better, smoothen your skin surface and prevent more transepidermal water loss (TEWL) to the atmosphere.
