Pimples can appear anywhere on the face, including between the eyebrows. While they are often simply a result of clogged pores or hormonal changes, some believe that pimples in specific facial areas may have a deeper spiritual significance.

The Third Eye Chakra

The area between the eyebrows corresponds to the sixth chakra, also known as the third eye or brow chakra. This chakra is associated with intuition, wisdom, insight, and perception beyond the physical world.

Some spiritual traditions believe that pimples between the eyebrows relate to the third eye chakra. Potential spiritual meanings include:

Blocked intuition

Pimples between the eyebrows may symbolize a blocked third eye chakra and issues with trusting intuition. You may be feeling disconnected from your inner wisdom and unable to perceive situations clearly.

To unblock this area, try meditating, using third eye chakra healing crystals like amethyst or sodalite, or reflecting on why you distrust your intuitive abilities.

Overactive third eye

Frequent pimples between the brows may also indicate an overactive third eye chakra. You may be overly focused on your spiritual vision, future, or imagination without being practical.

Try grounding techniques like spending time in nature, exercise, or root chakra healing. Reduce stimulating activities like watching TV, overusing technology, or consuming too much caffeine.

Confusion or misjudgment

Acne between the eyes can represent confusion, poor judgment, or misunderstanding spiritual experiences. Perhaps you need to pause and reevaluate how you have been perceiving events in your life.

Releasing negativity

Some believe pimples act as physical outlets to cleanse and release negativity or unhealthy thoughts from the body. The appearance of a pimple between the eyebrows may reveal the need to confront and let go of negative emotions, limiting beliefs, or patterns causing inner turmoil.

Growth related to the third eye

Finally, a pimple in this location may simply reflect spiritual development related to your sixth chakra. As you grow into your intuitive abilities, shifts and changes will occur energetically. Temporary breakouts are one possible physical manifestation.

Other Causes

While spiritual meanings are one potential explanation, pimples between the eyebrows often have non-mystical causes:

Hormonal fluctuations

Hormonal changes related to puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, menopause, etc. can trigger acne anywhere on the face. Pimples may flare between brows due to normal hormone shifts.


Stress activates the adrenal glands and triggers excess oil production, clogging pores. The area between the eyebrows is prone to stress pimples and may feel tense or sore during stressful times.

Skincare products

Hair gels, cosmetics, and skincare items containing pore-clogging ingredients can lead to pimples between the eyebrows or anywhere these products are applied. Switching products may help.


Exercise, sports, yardwork and other sweat-inducing activities can cause sweat, oils, and dirt to build up between the eyebrows, trapping bacteria in pores.

Rubbing and friction

Resting your face on your hands or rubbing the area between your brows can transfer oils and bacteria, leading to pimples. The friction and pressure can also irritate follicles.


Hats, helmets, and headbands worn often or for extended periods can trap sweat and oils against the skin between the eyebrows. This can clog pores and cause pimples.


A diet high in refined carbohydrates and sugar may worsen acne, as these foods trigger inflammation and increased insulin levels. While no studies directly link diet and pimples between the brows, an unhealthy diet can potentially exacerbate breakouts everywhere.

Preventing Pimples Between the Eyebrows

Whether the pimples between your eyebrows carry spiritual significance or not, here are some tips to prevent further breakouts:

Cleanse regularly

Gently cleanse the area between your eyebrows daily with a mild, non-comedogenic cleanser. This removes excess oil, sweat, makeup, and other pore-cloggers.

Exfoliate strategically

Use a gentle exfoliant like a salicylic acid cleanser once or twice a week to slough off dead skin cells. But take care not to over-exfoliate, as this can irritate skin.

Avoid touching

As tempting as it is, avoid picking or popping pimples to prevent infection and scarring. Never rub, touch, or apply pressure between your brows.

Use oil-free, non-comedogenic products

Read ingredient lists carefully and avoid hair and skincare containing pore-clogging ingredients like oils. Seek oil-free or non-comedogenic products.

Clean headwear and accessories

If you wear hats, headbands, or other accessories, clean them regularly to prevent dirt build-up leading to clogged pores and pimples between the eyes.

Manage stress

While not always possible, do your best to control stress levels through exercise, meditation, yoga, journaling, or other stress-relieving practices. This can reduce oil production and breakouts.

Get enough sleep

Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep per night. Insufficient sleep increases oil production and inflammation, worsening acne.

Stay hydrated

Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Dehydration can worsen toxins and impurities in the body, leading to more acne.

So if you notice a pimple popping up between your brows, consider possible spiritual symbolism. But also evaluate practical lifestyle factors that may be contributing. A combination of physical and energetic self-care can promote clear skin and balanced energy centers.
