Can't seem to figure out why your skin is breaking out more than usual? Aside from hormones and pollution, your hair is another possible culprit why your face, shoulders, chest, and back are suddenly sprouting out new, red friends.

Here, we listed down the low-key ways your tresses might be clogging your pores.

1. Bangs

If acne won't stop appearing on your chest, shoulders, and back, try washing your hair first and cleaning your body right after. This order, according to Teen Vogue, will prevent leftover hair products from staying on your skin.
