Please let me know if there is any way to reduce protruding forehead?

Doubt it: Theoretically one can reshape the skull but practically it will do too much damage to the brain to make it even worth a fleeting thought. Appearance is not everything and you'd do more to develop your skill and personality than to worry so much about your looks.

Protruding forehead(usually without hair) is a physical indication of intelligence?

No.: There is no relationship between the size or shape of the head (with or without hair) and intelligence. One cannot accurately guess a person's IQ by looks or even by scanning instruments such as mri, spect, or pet. Some genetic syndromes with striking physical features do predict intelligence, but almost always in the form of increased risk for mental retardation. ...Read more

I was wondering is a protruding forehead really the sign of a more developed frontal lobe?

Not necessarily: Frontal bossing is an abnormal enlargement of the frontal bone. It can be associated with rare medical conditions including acromegaly, or with conditions such as benign enlargement of the subarachnoid spaces. In the latter condition, the size of the frontal lobes may be normal or even reduced due to the increased subarachnoid space. Further reading: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1576605 ...Read more

I got acne on my forehead and i don't have the money to get laser treatment so is there home remedies that work?

Benzoyl peroxide: Laser treatment is for extreme cases. You owe it to yourself to start using topical benzyl peroxide as you can tolerate. If this hasn't cleared you in two weeks, find a free clinical where a sympathetic physician will give you an inexpensive script for something like tetracycline, which addded to the BP should be sufficient. ...Read more
