I am 58 years old and breaking out

Asked by Mary

I all the sudden find myself w/ large and small breakouts along the sides of my face and in my hairline on both sides. I am 58 yrs old and never had a problem w/ breakouts before. I haven’t changed meds or routine. I don’t wear make-up. Please enlighten me. Thank you.

    When new breakouts occur on the sides of the face and in the hairline on both sides, it is often caused by haircare products (shampoo, cream rinse, conditioner) which are just too heavy for the person’s skin. Products that are less apt to cause the problem are haircare products labeled “for oily hair” even though you may not have oily hair because those products are made without or have less oils which can cause the problem.
