Teenage Acne Sucks! By Sophie Bull, CSLA – Encino
June 3rd, 2016
Acne is by far the most common skin complaint among teenagers and can really effect self confidence. Being a teenager is tough enough without having to worry about breakouts! The best way to prevent acne is by educating your teenager on how acne develops, the triggers behind those flareups, and providing a customized skincare routine for home use.

Top tips for keeping young skin clear:
– Keep skin clean. Young skin produces more oil so it’s important to wash your face morning and night with our “Facial Shampoo” which will remove excess oil, dirt, make up, and sweat.
– Always wash your skin after sports or working out. Sweat and oil can settle on the skins surface, trapping dirt and bacteria in the pores. The quicker you can get the sweat and oil off your skin the better!
– Use the correct products- make sure all skincare products are oil free and non-comedogenic. Everyone has different skin and different needs. A complete evaluation of the individual particular skin type helps.
– Don’t pick!!! As tempting as it may be to squeeze a pimple – DON’T! Picking and squeezing can make your acne worse and result in scarring. Remember a pimple is temporary but a scar will last. (Photo courtesy of wisegeek.com)
