Skin Care Series: Teenage Years Part One

If you are a teenager, your sebaceous glands are probably running wild. My daughter will soon be 14 and started getting acne at 12. She doesn’t get any major breakouts, but she does get a lot of spots here and there, especially on her chin. I think that I have relatives with acne problems and she may have inherited it. It isn’t the end of the world, and it doesn’t seem to bother my kid, but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with wanting my kid to look her best. Plus, getting involved and creating her skin care routine is a fun bonding activity.

While she does have acne, she doesn’t seem to be oily or dry at all, so I suppose her complexion would be considered normal with acne.

I use Bioderma to clean her face, witch hazel for disinfecting, salicylic acid pads (once or twice a week depending on how her skin is), and generic Retin-A for her breakouts. I have not been keeping up with this routine lately because I wanted to give her skin a break to see what is and is not working. I think I will try washing her face, using witch hazel, and apply Retin-A and see what the does in a week and get back to you. I might add something to help her acne scaring as well.
