Why do I have spots on my temples?

Spots on temples may be a sign of dehydration, which can be caused by not drinking enough water. This can cause the oil glands at your temples to go into overdrive, leading to clogged pores and breakouts.

In the case that other spots along the sides of your face accompany the temple spots, the problem could be with your pillowcase. Pillowcases have to be changed regularly every 7 to 10 days, and more frequently if you introduce moisture to your pillow (if you sleep with wet hair or if you sweat when you sleep).

If you’re a side-sleeper and haven’t been regularly changing your pillowcases, you may want to look into correcting this problem and see if you observe improvement to your spots at the temple.

When we exercise hard, our forehead is often the first place to break a sweat. Sweat glands around your hairline and temple can easily become clogged and lead to pesky pimples.

Shower swiftly after exercising and cleanse thoroughly to avoid blemishes.

Lastly, cut down on the salty food as it affects the water balance in our bodies. We need more water to balance the sodium that we have consumed. If we don’t drink enough water to compensate, these salty snacks can quickly lead to dehydration.
