I’ve partnered with HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® to share how I help my teens handle those inevitable acne breakouts.
One thing I don't miss about being a teen was those occasional acne breakouts. I know I was lucky that my skin stayed mostly acne free, but it sure did feel like when I did break out, it was always at the worst times. Once my daughters entered the teenage years I knew it was time to have the not-so-exciting, but very necessary, talk about breakouts and how to take care of their skin when they have issues with acne.
When we sat down and talked, I made it very clear that acne is a normal part of teenage skin, but that there were things we could do to keep skin healthy and help prevent breakouts. I also made sure they know how to treat them when they do happen.
Even the most cared for skin can still get the occasional acne breakout. That’s just life as a teenager. The good news is that there is help available! When breakouts happen, I keep CLEAN & CLEAR ADVANTAGE® ACNE SPOT TREATMENT on hand. Before my girls even experienced breakouts, I explained how this medication works to clear pimples quickly thanks to the maximum strength 2% Salicylic acid. The powerful gel with breakthrough technology starts to dissolve surface oil on the skin and makes the pimples reduce in size, along with the swelling and redness. Plus it won’t over-dry their skin.
Below, you’ll find my best tips for teens on taking care of their skin:
- Wash your face morning and night. A clean face is a happy face! The best times to wash your face are as soon as you wake up and right before bed to remove any pore-clogging impurities.
