The Skin Care Routine to Follow When You Have Bangs The Skin Care Routine to Follow When You Have Bangs The Skin Care Routine to Follow When You Have Bangs

It’s not a stretch to say that bangs are one of the most popular haircut trends of the moment. Our favorite celebs rock bangs with style—as do our BFFs. If you’ve taken the plunge and gotten bangs yourself, then you may be wondering how to care for the skin that rests underneath your fringe—i.e., your forehead. How do you keep your forehead clear when you’ve always got hair sitting on top of it? Don’t worry—we’ve got you covered with a skin care routine tailored to those with bangs. Check out our skin care tips below!

Skin Care Tip #1: Don’t Forget to Cleanse Your Forehead

By now, you likely know how important it is to cleanse your skin morning and night—but as the saying goes, out of sight, out of mind. If you can’t see your forehead thanks to your bangs, you may be tempted to skip cleansing it. For that reason, make sure to pin your bangs up with bobby pins or a head band so that you can effectively see—and cleanse!—your entire face, from forehead to chin.

Consider using a clay cleanser, such as the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Cleanser, which is indulgently formulated to seamlessly transform from clay to mousse and remove everyday impurities without over-drying. This clay cleanser goes beyond daily cleansing to deep clean, purify skin of dirt, oil and pollution, and leave skin with a matte finish. To use, squeeze the cleanser into your hands and add water to transform it from clay to mousse. Then, gently massage it onto your face using circular motions, rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water, and pat dry. (Here’s how to find your clay cleanser match.)

Always on the go? Throw a micellar water into your bag to cleanse without rinsing whenever needed. Try the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types, which intensely purifies, removes makeup (even waterproof!), and cleans dirt and impurities. Saturate a cotton pad with the micellar water and wipe the pad across your entire face—then you’re good to go!

Skin Care Tip #2: Pin Your Bangs Back

If you have bangs, you should always keep a few bobby pins or a headband on hand, especially if you know you’re going to be sweating a lot. Not only will this help to keep sweat from mixing with the oils from your hair, this’ll also give you the opportunity to try a whole lot of new ‘dos. (Hitting the gym?

Skin Care Tip #3: Be Mindful of Styling Products

Think about it: The more styling products you use on your bangs, the more likely that those products could transfer to your forehead. So, try to keep the styling products to a minimum if you’re wearing your bangs down. Embrace your natural texture by rocking wavy bangs—this is especially pretty during the summer months when waves are at their peak popularity. (Watch our video for step-by-step instructions on creating beachy waves.)

Skin Care Tip #4: Wash Your Bangs Regularly

Although you may not wash your hair every single day, it’s still worth it to cleanse your bangs, since this small section of hair lays directly on your face. Try a system of clay shampoo and clay conditioner, then blow-dry your bangs straight or let them air dry.

Skin Care Tip #5: Keep Your Hands Off!

We know: This is easier said than done. But trust us, it’s a good idea!

Now that you know how to take care of your skin when you have bangs, it’s time to learn how to style them, too. Sometimes, bangs can be challenging to manage—but it doesn’t have to be that way.
