Hey, I have bangs. You know hair over the forehead. They're not long they probably just stop by my eyebrows. The problem is that I have tons of pimples under there. They aren't big and red, or anything like that but they are like spread out all over. Is it because of bangs, and how do I get rid of them without getting rid of my bangs? I'm only 13 and also was wondering when I'm an adult if I will still have them there?

When I had bangs, i got all sorts of forehead acne, too. I'd suggest using a cleanser every night (i like the Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne wash), and when you don't need your hair to be perfect, just bobby pin the bangs back so sweat and junk doesn't fester on your forehead.
A good friend of mine had that, she had to go see a dermatologist because of the severity of it. Schedule an appointment with your doctor and see what she/he says.
Also, like Gummy said, if they don't have to be all pretty and down, wear a headband, a bandanna or do anything else to keep them off your head.
Plus, don't put loads of make up on them, only adds to the problem of clogged pores and such.

I agree with both of those posts, but to add on to it. . .
Personally I would recommend using either that Neutrogena stuff that Gumdrop mentioned or Clean & Clear (both the blackhead exfoiliating scrub as well as the daily acne cleanser). I used to have the exact same problem as you did until I grew out my bangs. Yeah, they can be quite irritating during the growing process but it's worth it in the end. Just keep it out of your face.
