I also used to have forehead acne, and what finally cured it was eliminating dairy from my diet. If you decide to try eliminating dairy, read about alternative ways to get calcium in your diet.

My best and cheapest solution is to use things I already have on hand. Once a month or so, I'll gently massage around my scalp with pumps of Hada Labo Cleansing Oil and comb it through my roots. That helps remove any product or build up of oil or dead skin, isn't at all stripping, and it rinses easily with water. Then, after rinsing, I'll apply generous amounts of Naturie or Kiku and gently massage on damp hair/scalp. I'm fine to just let that all air dry. The smell of Kiku is pretty strongly sake, so maybe Naturie (or any Donki/Valor/Welcia hatomugi knockoff) is a bit better. You can rinse after a few minutes, if you prefer. Or, stagger the oil and masking into two different days, so you just apply and wait before the shower.

I personally don't think you need a chemical peel. You have mild hyperpigmentation that can be fixed with OTC products.

The most important thing is Sunscreen.

To fade the hyperpigmentation, look into these ingredients/products:

-AHAs (mandelic acid is the gentlest AHA and often recommended to dark-skinned folks)

-Niacinamide

-Retinoids

-Vitamin C

-Tranexamic acid: https://www.amazon.com/ROHTO-Hadalabo-Shirojun-Premium-Lotion/dp/B06WP7GBV3/

It's no problem! I use dermal sheet masks, I believe they're a Korean brand. I linked to a US amazon link just so you can see what it looks like. I feel like you'd be able to find them still, plus they are really cheap.


Also, in case you want to check out the 'toner' I use this is it. It's marketed as a toner but I honestly feel like it moisturizing enough to use without another moisturizer on top unless you're very dehydrated (which is why i like the squalane on top at night).

Research has shown that niacinamide is effective up to 5%. Higher percentage products (such as The Ordinary 10% Niacinamide Serum) are based on marketing, not scientific studies. Research needs to be done to prove that 10% niacinamide is more effective than 5% niacinamide, but based on what I've seen from hanging out on this sub, 10% niacinamide doesn't show faster improvements than 5% niacinamide. 10% niacinamide is also much more likely to cause irritation and breakouts for people with sensitive skin.

Mix TO Niacinamide with your moisturizer in a 1:1 ratio, and then apply the mixture to your skin.

Other than Niacinamide, look into these ingredients/products:

-Tranexamic acid: https://www.amazon.com/ROHTO-Hadalabo-Shirojun-Premium-Lotion/dp/B06WP7GBV3/

EDIT:

If your skin is irritated, a soothing ingredient is Centella Asiatica. La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume (available at Target, CVS, Walgreens) is a popular product with that ingredient.

While you have dehydrated skin, you can't use AHA/BHA, but you can use Urea. Read the 5% Urea Cream section of my comment for product recs: https://www.reddit.com/r/SkincareAddiction/comments/a27s5k/routine_help_my_sensitive_skin_looks_terrible_and/eavz6n5/
