What Are These Bumps on my Forehead? (photo)

I got my hair cut a month ago and started to develop hairline bumps. I thought it was a result of wearing my hair down more. I switched two weeks ago to rosehip oil to moisturize my face before a glycolic peel as it was gentle but then i started getting bumps between my brow. I stopped using the oil a week and a half ago but the bumps have spread all over my forehead. I'm thirty two and have never had acne. What's wrong with me?

Blocked Pores


Based on your pictures, it appears you have blocked pores on your forehead.  Treatment with a prescription retinol can help soften and unblock the pores.  Following treatment with a topical retinol, a facial with extractions can help further reduce the appearance of the pores.  However, it is important to consult with a dermatologist who can evaluate your condition clinically and determine the best treatment plan.
