Teen Acne: Prologue

(I am not going to ever show what my daughter’s acne looks like when it flares up because I don’t want her finding out later down the line that I posted pics of her with acne for everyone to see. You will only see her in makeup or whenever her skin clears.)

My daughter started getting pimples when she started her monthly cycle, and it seems to me that she has full on acne and not pimples here and there like I and her father had when we were her age.

That means I have to do some research and some trial and errors. So far I have been using witch hazel, retin A and benxyol peroxide on her, but I haven’t been putting anything on her lately because I wanted to see what her skin would be like if I did nothing at all to it.

She gets a lot of spots, but no cystic acne, which is a good sign. She does get acne scarring and is prone to white heads. I will be putting her back on her witch hazel and Retin A treatments (witch hazel morning and night, Retin A before bed) to see if that is really all I need to do or if I need more products to help her.
