Treating teenagers skincare concerns

Look after your teen skin like a BFF.

WHAT ARE SOME MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT TREATING TEEN SKIN?

Sometimes it is portrayed as beneficial to strip all oil off the skin by using products that are SD alcohol-based. This only dehydrates and irritates skin, which then creates more breakout activity.

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO TREAT PIMPLES?

Use a topical product on a pimple to reduce the bacteria and help clear and heal the breakout. Squeezing pimples can spread bacteria, which can make acne worse and can also cause scarring.

WHEN WOULD A TEENAGER NEED TO SEE A DERMATOLOGIST?

It shouldn’t be necessary to see a dermatologist unless you are worried about a skin lesion or condition, such as severe acne that is at risk of scarring the skin. A qualified skin therapist would be the perfect person to advise a teen on how to care for their skin.
